Grande Portage Resources (GPG) has received positive acid-base accounting (ABA) results from the Herbert Gold Project in SE Alaska.

These tests are done as part of the permitting process to demonstrate what the acid-generating potential is for the rocks around the Herbert Gold Deposit.

A total of eight baseline samples were tested from wall rocks next to the mineralized veins within the Herbert Gold Project area. All samples reported low acid potential and very high neutralization potential, meaning that all rocks are net acid consumers and are unlikely to produce acid.

Surface waters were collected to assess chemistries and suspended solids.

Geochemical Solutions LLC of Colorado was contracted for the job and reported that “Chemically, the water is very clean with very low total dissolved solids.”

The company’s President and CEO, Ian Klassen, explained that these results demonstrate no potential issues for acid rock drainage at the Herbert Gold Project.

“The simple metallurgy and lack of identifiable environmental issues assist the company in developing the Herbert Gold Project’s NI 43-101 Gold Resource shown below:”

Grande Portage Resources Ltd. is a mineral-exploration company focused on the Herbert Gold discovery situated approximately 25 km north of Juneau, Alaska.

Grande Portage Resources Ltd. was up 2.63 per cent, trading at $0.19 at 9:50 am ET.
