There are known gold occurrences grading up to 50.8 g/t Au, previously sampled in bedrock, within the property.
There are also numerous gold soil anomalies and extremely anomalous till samples, with up to 508 gold grains, discovered over an area of approximately 12 by 3 kilometres.
Drilling has been limited to a small area of approximately 1.4 by 0.8 kilometres and includes significant intersections that warrant follow-up drilling.
Drill hole WB-08-04 intersected 28.0 meters grading 0.91 g/t Au within the rhyolite, which was altered from the collar to a depth of 60.7 meters down the hole.
Grades in the altered rhyolite from WB-08-04 drill hole ranged up to 5.4 g/t Au over 1.0 meter.
Other significant drill results include hole WB-08-11 with 11.2 g/t Au over 2.8 meters.
In the same area, grab samples collected in trenches returned values of 3.5 g/t Au and 14.0 g/t Au.
Also, floats grading 28.0 g/t Au and 40.5 g/t Au were found.
To date, the main focus of exploration was centered on an area of approximately 2.0 by 1.5 kilometers, an area which includes numerous gold occurrences, as well as the initial discoveries from 2005.
An induced polarization survey indicates that the alteration zones remain open to the south of the surveyed area.
An IP survey carried out in 2012 identified anomalous chargeability that remains untested to the north of the earlier surveys.
Moreover, a reconnaissance soil survey line, crossing the south end of this IP anomaly, returned a value of 63 ppb Au, possibly indicative of another alteration zone.
Puma’s team is currently compiling the data to generate the exploration program to be conducted for the 2020 field season. ■
