Mining Stock News: O2Gold (TSXV:OTGO.V) Intercepts 20 g/t Au at the Main Aurora Vein, Which Has a Projected Extension of at Least 700 Meters, at Only 97 Meters of Depth

Investorideas Featured Company: O2Gold Inc. (TSX: OTGO.V)


TORONTO - September 21, 2021 ( Newswire) O2Gold Inc. ("O2Gold" or the "Company") (TSXV:OTGO) is pleased to report high-grade gold-silver intercepts from its first drill hole at the Aurora Tunnel in Colombia, where the Company has exploitation and production permits.

Key Highlights


The drilling campaign on the Aurora project area is being carried out by two rigs and aims to define the mineralized body formerly explored by artisanal miners. Hole AUR-21-001 is the first to intercept the main mineralized vein. Figure 1 shows a cross section of the hole as well as the expected projection of the vein identified by spontaneous potential testing. Sampling intervals and the main values obtained are also noted.

AUR-21-001 crossed a sequence of intrusive igneous rock similar to a quartz diorite, with mylonite metric levels where a chloritic alteration predominates, and strong silicification is superimposed. Figure 2 shows the intercepted mineralized vein.

The hole finished a final depth of 220 meters and cut the entire anomalous sequence identified in the spontaneous potential mapping previously announced by the Company in a press release dated August 31, 2021. The intersection between 8.70 - 11.70 m is an additional highlight for the Company, as it indicated an interval of 3 m @ 12.30 g/t Ag. Though a highly-weathered and low-recovery interval, it showed fragments of quartz veins, precisely in the interval that the spontaneous potential indicated as anomalous. Scheduled drill holes from the ongoing, 8,000 m drill campaign will aim to better intercept and recover intervals to identify the true potential of this anomaly.

Drilling Continues

AUR-21-001 is only one of the four holes completed. There are eight remaining targets to complete the approximately 4,000 m of planned drilling at the Aurora project area. Assays from holes AUR-21-002 and AUR-21-003, which intercepted quartz veins, are at SGS Colombia S.A.S.'s ("SGS") lab facility for analysis, and the results are expected in 10 days.

Quality Assurance and Quality Control

All samples were shipped to the SGS's lab facility in Medellin, Colombia, where they were prepared and analyzed. They were analyzed using SGS procedure FAA515 to gold (fire-assay on a 50-gram sample with AAS finish) and AAS12C to silver (multi-acid digestion with AAS finish). Over the limit gold was determined by SGS procedure FAG505 (using standard fire-assay on a 50-gram sample with a gravimetric finish).

In line with QAQC best practices, approximately 10% of a 78-sample batch are control samples (three Au-Ag standards: High/Medium/Low grades, two fine blanks, one project blank, and two field duplicates).

SGS is independent of O2Gold. The Company is not aware of any other factors that could materially affect the accuracy or reliability of the data referred to herein.
