The Drill Down: Best Gold Assays (Feb. 9-16)

Costmine Intelligence dug out the top gold assays from its data for the week of Feb. 9-16. Drill holes are ranked by gold grade x width.

Canada and the United States hosted the top three drill assays, with Alamos Gold (TSX: AGI) leading the rankings with its Island gold project in Northern Ontario. Dolly Varden Silver (TSXV: DV) followed with drill results from its Kitsault Valley Project in British Columbia’s Golden Triangle, and Dateline Resources (ASX: DTR) came in third with its Colosseum Gold Project in California.

Alamos Gold released new results from underground exploration at its Island gold mine in Ontario. Drilling is demonstrating extension of the of gold mineralization across the deposits, close to existing infrastructure.  These results are expected to contribute to another increase in mineral reserves and resources at Island Gold to be outlined in the year-end 2023 update to be released later this month.

Dolly Varden Silver released the remaining drill results from 48 drill holes from its 2023 drill program at its 100-per-cent-owned Kitsault Valley project that includes the Homestake Ridge and Dolly Varden properties, reporting 26 drill holes from the Homestake Main Zone (11,054.90 metres of drilling), four drill holes (2,478.00 m of drilling) from the Homestake Silver northwestern extension and six exploration drill holes on the Homestake Ridge property (1,627.00 m). In addition, 12 holes (6,971.00 m) from the Dolly Varden property, including the North Star, Red Point and Wolf areas are reported.

Dateline Resources received assay results for diamond drillhole, CM23-14, drilled at the Colosseum Gold Project in San Bernardino County, California, USA, that intersected 70.1m @ 6.53g/t Au, including a higher grade section of 25.9m @ 15.31g/t Au. Drill hole CM23-14 is the eigth exploratory hole the company has completed at the Colosseum project.  At the time of the release of the drill result, the company completed 254 metres of the planned 310 metre, CM24-15 diamond drill hole.
