Gold Lion Increases Land Holding at Robber Gulch Oxide Gold Project in Idaho
Vancouver, British Columbia / June 23, 2020 – Gold Lion Resources Inc. (“Gold Lion” or the “Company”) (CSE: GL) (OTC: GLIOF) (FWB: 2BC) is pleased to announce it has staked an additional ground adjoining to the southwest of its Robber Gulch gold Property (“Robber Gulch” or the “Property”) located near Burley, Idaho, as a result of its recently completed work program that showed the gold-in-soil anomaly extending off the original claim block. The gold-in-soil anomaly trends to the south underneath a thin cover of post-mineral volcanic rocks and emerges again south of the basalt flows. It is interpreted that the mineralization may continue underneath the basalt that mantles the Oquirrh Formation host rocks.
In addition, a second program of mapping and rock sampling has now been completed and several significant new outcroppings of Carlin-type alteration, including decalcification, silicification and jasperoid alteration was observed in many locations to the south, along strike from the strongest portion of the soil anomaly. The gold-in-soil values over the altered outcrops appear to be diluted by barren talus boulders that have shed off the post-mineral basalt outcrops upslope. Eighty-one rock samples were collected and have now been submitted for geochemical analysis, the results of which will be released upon receipt.
The project is under option from EMX Royalty Corp. The primary target at Robber Gulch is Carlin-style oxide gold mineralization. A reconnaissance program by EMX Royalty Corp. in 2019 identified broad areas of alteration surrounding several mineralized north-south fault structures within the exposed Oquirrh Formation units. The alteration is zoned outwards from the mineralized faults with jasperoid developed along the structures, grading outwards to decalcification and silicification with brecciation and quartz veining.
Preliminary mapping completed last month indicates the presence of receptive carbonate units overlain by a thrust faulted package of upper plate siliciclastic rocks. Very little outcrop occurs within the anomalous zone. The gold values are believed to be controlled by high angle north-south oriented fault structures. A primary target for drill testing is the intersection of these interpreted gold-bearing structures with the receptive carbonate rocks at depth. According to historic drill logs, the four shallow holes drilled by Exvenco Resources in 1986 were not deep enough to reach the underlying carbonate rocks.
Oliver Friesen, CEO of Gold Lion, stated: “We are excited to be able to expand our land package at Robber Gulch and extend the footprint of Carlin-type alteration further to the south. We look forward to planning our next phase of ground-work upon receipt of the rock geochemical results and further refining our drill targets on the project.”
