Walker River Resources has released the results from its reverse circulation drill programs in the Lapon Canyon portion of the Lapon Gold Project.

The Lapon Gold Project, which is located in the Walker Lane shear zone in northern Nevada, includes the Lapon Canyon, Pikes Peak, Rattlesnake, and Range Front claims.

The report included gold grade results from four drill holes:

  • The first, LC21-58, returned 9.45 g/tonne Au over 16.8 metres
  • LC21-57 returned 1.02 g/tonne Au over 24.4 metres
  • LC20-53 returned 1.04 g/tonne Au over 59.5 metres
  • LC20-50 contained 1.42 g/tonne Au over 13.7 metres

In hole LC 21-58, the higher-grade intercept was located just before entering an old underground mining stope that continued for approximately eight meters, clearly demonstrating the potential thickness and scope of the higher-grade structures.

The December 2020 drill program was designed to ascertain granite contacts and their relationships with the altered gold mineralized alteration zones.

The 2021 drill program will continue to target the higher-grade trends and expand the new gold mineralization previously discovered in several areas.

At least 60 to 65 drill holes are planned in the present program.

Walker River Resources is a junior mining company focused on advancing high-grade, low-cost mining opportunities into production. 

Walker River Resources (WRR) is down 15.38 per cent and is trading at $0.11 per share as of 1:35 pm ET.
