SEPTEMBER 15, 2020
Vancouver, BC: Etruscus Resources Corp. (CSE: ETR) (FSE: ERR) (the “Company” or “Etruscus”) is pleased to announce that the Company has intersected multiple zones of massive and semi-massive sulphides (assays pending) during deep drilling at its Rock & Roll Property located in the Eskay Camp of Northwest B.C.’s prolific Golden Triangle. The Company is currently reviewing early results for potential further drill testing to expand its gold-silver rich Black Dog Deposit. After completing its initial drill target, Etruscus has immediately directed its aim at other targets confirmed in Phase 1 of its program.
- RR20-09: Three separate lenses of mineralization have been hit containing massive, semi-massive and disseminated sulphide totaling 9.5 meters (m), including two lenses within a 12.8 m zone (Click Here to View Image);
- The sulphide included abundant sphalerite (zinc) and chalcopyrite (copper) that has in the past been correlated to elevated precious metal content;
- A fault zone is emerging as an important structural feature as it has been noted in multiple deep drill holes and may have implications for offset deeper mineralization; and
- Drilling has moved to “Brown Sugar”, a shallow portion of “The Wall” target that occurs at depth. It is down-dip of and has a footprint 10 times the size of the Black Dog deposit.
