Aton drills high grade sulphide mineralisation at Rodruin, with 39.4 g/t gold and 261.7 g/t silver over 9.9 metres, within an overall intersection of 88.6 metres grading 5.76 g/t gold, 42.0 g/t silver, 0.31% copper and 2.40% zinc
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 10, 2022 -- Aton Resources Inc. (AAN: TSX-V) ("Aton" or the "Company") is very pleased to update investors on the latest assay results from the Phase 2 diamond drilling programme at its advanced Rodruin gold exploration project. Rodruin is located in the Company's 100% owned Abu Marawat Concession ("Abu Marawat" or the "Concession"), in the Eastern Desert of Egypt.
Diamond drilling is ongoing at Rodruin, with 35 drill holes now having been completed to date, ROD-048 and ROD-051 to ROD-084, for a total of 3,862 metres;
Drill holes ROD-048, ROD-070, and ROD-071 were drilled to test for potential deep sulphide mineralisation to the north of the Aladdin's Hill zone;
Drill hole ROD-071 returned a mineralised intersection grading 5.76 g/t Au, 42.0 g/t Ag, 0.31% Cu and 2.40% Zn over 88.6m, from 117.2m down hole depth, which included a very high grade zone grading 39.4 g/t Au, 261.7 g/t Ag, 0.84% Cu and 3.55% Zn over 9.9m;
The Au-Ag-Cu-Zn sulphide mineralisation in hole ROD-071 is hosted within heavily siliceous and phyllic altered tuffogenic sediments;
Other drill holes also returned significant mineralised intersections including 17.1m grading 1.07 g/t Au and 15.7 g/t Ag (hole ROD-048), and 5.7m grading 4.21 g/t Au and 14.6 g/t Ag (hole ROD-070);
These latest results indicate the potential for the development of significant high grade polymetallic sulphide gold resources at Rodruin.
