Canadian miner Bravada Gold has received an approval for amending its drilling permit for the Wind Mountain gold and silver project in Nevada, the U.S., the company said in a state-ment.


“After posting a small increase in bond, five new drill sites will allow deeper tests of the vein system that was discovered in Q4 2020 by drilling beneath mine waste and other overburden at the Feeder Tar-get, in which hole WM20-102 intersected 1.5 metres of 269.0g/t Ag and 0.404g/t Au within a thicker interval of banded quartz veining to-gether with anomalous gold and silver,” the statement said.


The miner says its 2021 resource upgrade drilling programme indi-cated that higher grades exist in certain horizons predicted by its 3D model, “providing confidence to better model and expand these higher-grade zones during our planned 2022 update to the 2012 Re-source and PEA,” according to Bravada Gold.
