Argus begins Gold Exploration Program in the Yukon Selwyn Basin
| ||Vancouver, British Columbia, September 25, 2017 - Argus Metals Corp. (the "Company" or "Argus") (TSX.V: AML) announces the 2017 exploration program on the Ike Project in the Selwyn Basin of the Yukon. |
Argus is conducting a geological mapping and sampling program in the Ike project. The company will be targeting a gold mineralization in association with a significant east west fault that is associated with limestone rock and an interpreted intrusive heat source which have the potential to develop into a significant mineralizing system.
The IKE project has the potential to host a sediment-hosted gold system similar to Nevada style gold deposits in the Carlin District. In addition to positive reconnaissance geochemical survey results and favourable rock types, the IKE property also hosts spatially related lead-zinc showings (MINFILE # 105A 030).
- The IKE Gold Project is located in the Selwyn Basin of the Yukon, an emerging highly prospective gold district characterized by recent major Carlin-type sediment hosted gold discoveries made by ATAC Resources Ltd. at the Rau Gold project.
- The Ike project was originally staked based on coincident anomalous arsenic and gold in regional stream sediment samples. The project area is underlain by carbonate lithologies and an intrusive suite.
President and CEO
Michael Collins comments, "Previous work on the Ike project has focused on base level soil and stream sampling and so we are pleased to be back working on the Ike project with a detailed mapping program to develop discrete mineralization targets as we move the project forward."
