Vancouver-based Walker River Resources has announced that drilling was restarted as part of the company’s reverse cir-culation (RC) drilling programme at the Lapon Canyon portion of the Lapon gold project in Nevada, the U.S.


“The 2021 drilling programs have been designed to determine structure and morphology for 3D geological modelling. Drilling has concentrated on the boundary contacts of the gold mineralization with the surrounding country rock (granite). To date, drilling has been successful in determining the gold mineralization continuing to be open along strike both to the [north-east] and [south-west], including the discovery of new mineraliza-tion,” the company said in a statement.


So far, Walker River Resources has obtained assay results from some 72 drillholes at the Lapon project.


“Of these, 19 returned significant higher grades, 23 returned significant lower grades, 16 were carried out in unaltered granite, and 12 were lost/abandoned,” according to the statement.
