The run of building metals prices in recent weeks ran out of steam and retrenched on profit-taking and on increased US dollar strength.

A relatively calm week for news, calm that is apart from continued sabre-rattling between North Korea and the USA, with North Korea launching another missile over Japan-

Company news

NuLegacy Gold (TSXV: NUG) discovered another important gold zone on its Red Hill property in Nevada, USA.

  • Hole VIO17-01 in the VIO zone, some 4km east of the Iceberg gold deposits, returned 33.5m @ 0.65g/t Au & 5.5g/t Ag.
  • Gold appears to be epithermal-style mineralization
  • Proof of targeting concept

Analysis

The VIO results show an entirely different deposit type to that of NuLegacy’s Carlin-style gold deposits. Important epithermal gold deposits exist within the Northern Nevada Rift that crosses the Cortez trend through the company’s Red Hill property. Red Hill is positioned at the intersection of the Cortez-trend and the Northern Nevada Rift, two of Nevada’s richest gold trends. This VIO discovery proves the concept that significant gold mineralization can be found where the two structures intersect.

The VIO drilling was targeted via the completion of a 6-line km CSAMT survey complimented by 332 soil and rock chip samples. The soil geochemistry survey identified multiple areas with highly anomalous gold values that are proximal to a series of structures identified by the CSAMT and geologic mapping program.
