Rockhaven Drills Multiple Mineralized Veins Outside of Klaza Resource Area at its Klaza Gold-Silver Project, Yukon

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / January 16, 2020 / Rockhaven Resources Ltd. (TSXV:RK) (“Rockhaven”) is pleased to announce the final assay results from the 2019 diamond drill program at its 100%-owned and road accessible Klaza property, located in the Dawson Range Gold Belt of southern Yukon. The 2019 program successfully evaluated targets that lie adjacent to the zones containing the 2018 mineral resource estimate. Results in this release are from 24 holes, which were designed to better define the Eastern Zones, and two exploration holes that targeted the nearby Chevron and Dickson zones.

“Exploration peripheral to the plus million ounce Klaza gold-silver deposit continues to return high-grade, near-surface drill results that demonstrate significant resource expansion potential,” stated Matt Turner, Rockhaven’s CEO. “Additionally, Rockhaven’s treasury remains strong with over $2.8 million and an exciting 2020 drill program and updated project economics on the horizon.”

Definition drilling was completed in the Eastern portions of the BRX, AEX, Stroshein, and Pika zones, collectively known as the Eastern Zones, where broad bands of fracture-style mineralization flank discrete structures that extend eastward from the known mineral resources. The 2019 drilling focused on the near-surface portions of these structures (from surface to ~125 m depth). Multiple veins were intersected in all of the holes. Gold in sulphide veins within the Eastern Zones is amenable to cyanide leaching, with 81% of the gold recovered to doré. Oxidized near-surface mineralization has not been systematically tested but should yield even better leaching results.

A total of 67 holes have been drilled in the 800 m by 500 m Eastern Zones target area. Mineralization is open for expansion laterally in three directions and to depth.

All of the mineralized veins announced in this news release are outside of the current Klaza mineral resources. Assay highlights from this news release include:

  • 19.40 g/t gold and 240.0 g/t silver over 0.69 m – Hole 460
  • 1.53 g/t gold and 10.2 g/t silver over 7.05 m – Hole 465
  • 0.67 g/t gold and 8.7 g/t silver over 29.40 m – Hole 450
  • 3.43 g/t gold and 20.4 g/t silver over 2.72 m – Hole 451
  • 15.90 g/t gold and 74.6 g/t silver over 0.55 m – Hole 454
  • 8.05 g/t gold and 10.6 g/t silver over 1.09 m – Hole 466
  • 2.52 g/t gold and 111.0 g/t silver over 2.05 m – Hole 447
  • 3.07 g/t gold and 13.7 g/t silver over 2.28 m – Hole 441
  • 11.50 g/t gold and 90 g/t silver over 0.50 m – Hole 435
  • 0.58 g/t gold and 9.2 g/t silver over 19.54 m – Hole 448

The 2019 field program at the Klaza property consisted of 5,750 m drilled in 33 holes. Maps, sections and core photos can be viewed at Rockhaven’s website www.rockhavenresources.com. The results from seven holes were previously reported on December 11, 2019. Significant new drill results from the Eastern Zone are shown in Table I below.

+ Represents the diamond drill hole core length. True widths are estimated to be approximately 80-90% of the interval.

Two drill holes tested the eastern projections of the Chevron and Dickson zones, located 500 m south of the Klaza mineral resource area. Drilling successfully expanded these zones to the east, where mineralization appears to be similar in nature to that in the Eastern Zones. Significant drill results from these two exploration holes are shown in Table II below.
