Golden Predator Mining Corp. Feb. 23 announced the start of 2017 drilling at its 3 Aces gold project in southeastern Yukon.
This 20,000-meter program will initially focus on the Spades zone and then test other areas of the property.
Drilling in the Spades zone will start at the Ace of Spades vein, where previous drilling has encountered high-grade gold at surface and deeper, lower grade stockwork mineralization.
Hole 3A16-RC-032, a recent hole that tapped both of these zones, cut 7.54 meters of 32.86 grams per metric ton gold from a depth of 16.76 meters and 47.33 meters of low-grade gold in stockwork before encountering a new blind vein at 71.63 meters that returned 3.23 meters of 10.04 g/t gold.
Initial drilling of the Jack, Queen, Seven and Three of Spades veins is also planned for the winter program.
Due to their higher elevations, follow up drilling at the Clubs and Hearts zones is expected to resume during the summer months.
