- Detailed mapping, trenching and soils Bighorn, Ross targets
- Drilling slated for August
Alianza Minerals Ltd. (TSX-V: ANZ, OTC US: TARSF) (“Alianza” or the “Company”) reports that planning is underway for the 2019 field program at the Haldane Property, a high-grade silver target in the historic Keno Hill Mining District of Yukon Territory. The first phase of the program, consisting of additional soil geochemistry, mapping and trenching, will start in June. Drilling will follow in August. The 8,579 hectare Haldane Silver Property is located 25 km west of Keno City, YT in the western portion of the Keno Hill Silver District.
“The 2018 program was successful on a number of fronts,” stated Jason Weber, P.Geo, President and CEO of Alianza. “We will begin this year’s program by following up on new targets such as the Bighorn anomaly and the extensions of known target areas such as the Ross and Mt. Haldane Veins System targets. The information from the first phase this summer will help prioritize drilling for the second phase program.”
The first phase program will consist of mapping, prospecting and soil geochemical surveys in the areas of the Bighorn and Ross anomalies. The road-accessible Bighorn anomaly is a new target identified in the 2018 program and is open for expansion. Further work at this target will attempt to expand the soil geochemical footprint of the anomaly and detailed mapping and prospecting will target structure and mineralization for follow up trenching. The same approach will be used at the Ross anomaly, particularly to the west where 2018 soil geochemical data identified a new target area. Trenching may also be undertaken here if warranted. The results of this first phase program will be used to prioritize drilling at the Bighorn, Ross and Mt Haldane Vein System targets planned for August.
