Westward Gold (CSE:WG) has announced it has completed surface sampling at the Toiyabe, Turquoise Canyon and East Saddle Projects in Nevada.
The company stated in a news release that a total of 353 surface rock chip samples were collected between the three projects.
Notably, samples were collected as follows:
- 29 samples were collected at Toiyabe
- 182 samples collected at Turquoise Canyon Project
- 142 samples collected at the East Saddle Project
The company also reported that a total of 606 soil samples with 100-metre spacings were collected at the East Saddle Project and the southern extent of the Toiyabe Project, covering the exposed lower-plate carbonate window.
“Strong, surface-level oxidation is an important characteristic of these deposits and relates to the abundance of pyrite formed, a key component of gold-hosting systems,” Robert Edie, vice president of exploration at Westard Gold, said in a statement. “Tectonic breccia speaks to the structural preparation of host rocks; the gold-bearing Carlin fluid uses these structural pathways to rise from depth where it interacts with the meteoric water table and geochemically precipitates gold – preferentially into carbonate rocks.”
Now that the 2023 field season is coming to an end, the company said it continues to evaluate growth opportunities through mergers and acquisitions.
Westward Gold is a mineral exploration company focused on developing the Toiyabe, Turquoise Canyon, and East Saddle Projects near Lander County, Nevada. It also holds the Coyote and Rossi Projects along the Carlin Trend in Elko County, Nevada.
Shares of Westward Gold are unchanged at C$0.11.
