Goldsource Mines (TSXV:GXS) has announced the assay results from their drill program at the company’s Eagle Mountain Gold Project in Guyana.

The drill program focused on the Toucan Target, located within the north-south two kilometre mineralised structure that runs through the heart of the Eagle Mountain project.

Toucan has been the site of drilling in the past, previously returning results as good as 19.3 grams of gold per tonne over 22 metres.

Results from the four drill holes returned mixed results. One drill hole intersected 66 metres at 1.35 grams per tonne of gold and another over 35 metres which intersected 2.10 grams per tonne of gold.

The company believes the results indicate Toucan is 250 metres long by 20 to 40 metres wide, and could be connected with the Powis discovery 600 metres to the south within the Eagle Mountain property.

President of Goldsource, Yannis Tsitos, said that since discovering the Salbora deposit the company has focused on using historic drilling data and some geophysical mapping to prioritise drilling targets.

“This compilation had led to us to the Toucan Target with an initial near-surface drill hole intercept of 66 metres grading 1.35 grams per tonne gold in one drill hole and a 36 metre intercept grading at 2.1 grams per tonne gold in another drill hole.

“Before the suspension on April 6 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, several additional holes were completed at Salbora and Powis and initial drill results were obtained for the Friendly target…these will be announced after compilation over the next 6 weeks,” he added.

Goldsource Mines (GXS) is trading up 8 per cent at C$0.14 per share at 12:57pm EST.
