Vancouver, BC – May 11, 2023 – Etruscus Resources Corp. (CSE: ETR) (OTC: ETRUF) (FSE:ERR) (the “Company” or “Etruscus”) is pleased to announce its 2023 drill program (the “Program”) has commenced at the Company’s Lewis Property (or “Property”). The Property is road accessible and is located 5 km south of the Trans Canada Highway in the Gander Gold Belt, approximately 10 km west of New Found Gold’s Keats Zone discovery in Newfoundland. The geological team arrived last week and has quickly established core cutting and staging areas along with conducting ground truthing to confirm collar locations for the entire Program. Drilling is now underway.
- Previous geochemical and geophysical programs have identified two highly chargeable structures on the Property, one north and one northeast striking, these structures have provided high priority targets for the Company’s inaugural drill Program (Click Here to View a Plan Map);
- Up to 2,000 m of drilling will be executed over 10 to 15 holes, with a focus on four high priority target areas in the center of the Property;
- Historically, only four short test holes were drilled over the 4.6 km strike length, none of which tested the areas of highest chargeability confirmed in a recent IP Survey (Click Here to View Cross Section); and
- The geological team arrived last week to establish core cutting and staging areas and confirm drill collar locations along with ground truthing the high priority target areas.
Stephen Wetherup, VP of Exploration, commented, “With all the successful reconnaissance work completed in the last 12 months, its great to finally drill test the high priority targets we’ve developed along the 4.6 km of highly chargeable structures.” He went on to add, “During our first week here, we reviewed the historic Noranda drill core stored at the library in Buchans. We noted that mineralization is restricted to sulphide rich zones in the core and this reinforces our strategy of targeting the large chargeable anomalies highlighted from last year’s IP Survey. We look forward to reporting assay results once received.”
The current drill program is designed to test numerous chargeable zones, targeting where coincident anomalous Au-As-Sb soils occur and where high Au mineralization was indicated in rock surface samples. Due to the numerous trails on the Property, drill access is excellent. The Program will be able to test as many points along the chargeable structures as possible to overcome the lack of outcrop on the Property. All holes will be utilizing oriented core to allow the team to better interpret the geophysical data and to target structural intersections where wider and better mineralized portions of the structures are expected to be located.
