Irving Resources (IRV) has announced plans for exploration and drilling across its Omu gold-silver vein project in Hokkaido, Japan.

The company recently completed a diamond drill program at the Omu Sinter target. The program consisted of four drill holes that encountered long intervals of low-grade mineralization and short intervals of higher-grade gold and silver.

Drilling intersected mineralized rock that extends to a vertical depth of approximately 180 metres.

Dr. Quinton Hennigh, director and technical advisor to Irving, commented on the results.

“Although low grade, the strength and volume of rock that has been affected suggests a feeder structure is nearby,” he said. “It may be in an orientation we simply have not explored.”

Irving has also received permits and plans to commence drilling at the Omui Mine Site and Hokuryu targets in the third and fourth quarters of 2021.

At Omui Mine Site, Rodren Drilling, a Canadian company, will drill a series of holes to follow up previous high-grade vein intercepts at the Honpi and Nanko targets.

At Hokuryu, the maiden drill program will be undertaken using a Japanese-based drill contracted from Sumiko Resources Exploration & Development.

The company plans to drill a total of up to eight holes across the Honpi, Nanko, and Hokuryu vein systems.

Dr. Hennigh called the drill program “aggressive,” and stated that the company plans to begin drilling at the beginning of September.

“We are very eager to get back to work,” he said.

Irving is a junior exploration company with a focus on gold in Japan.

Irving Resources Inc. (IRV) is down 3.07 per cent, trading at $1.58 per share as of 12:12 pm ET.
