Toronto, ON – June 12, 2023 – Big Gold Inc. (CSE: BG) (“the Company” or “Big Gold”) is pleased to announce that the Company has mobilized its technical team to commence the initial phases of the 2023 summer exploration at the newly acquired Tabor Project (“Tabor” or the “Project”) located within the Shebandowan Greenstone Belt northwest of Thunder Bay, Ontario.
Big Gold previously announced its 2023 exploration on the 3,120-hectare Tabor Project with the technical team looking to complete the following:
- Historical desktop study – compiling historical work and priority target definition
- Control grid line-cutting
- Magnetic and induced polarization program
- Geological mapping and sampling
- Till sampling
“We will look to make an immediate impact on the geological understanding of our large land position at Tabor on the back of our successful oversubscribed private placement. Our team believes that occurrences seen throughout the neighbouring Goldshore property trend in our direction, and we will be applying some new geological thinking in our evaluation of targets on the property that has drawn a significant new level of interest to the area,” commented President and CEO Scott Walters. “As of right now, our area northwest of Thunder Bay is not restricted for the type of exploration that we will be commencing and our team will be keeping a close eye on the forest fire situation elsewhere.”
About the Tabor Project
Tabor is adjacent to the east along trend of the Moss Project of Goldshore Resources Inc. that hosts a current inferred resource of 6 million ounces (grading 1.2 g/t Gold) at the Moss Lake Gold deposit* (see Figure 1) and is located approximately 20 km to the west of the Delta Resources Delta 1 Project*.
Gold mineralization on the Project is reportedly associated with quartz veins, shearing and sulphides including pyrite, pyrrhotite, sphalerite and chalcopyrite. Geological host rocks include mafic volcanics, sericite schists, felsic porphyry units and chemical sediments. Gabbro, sericite schist and bedded sediments are also reported to outcrop on the Project. Geological and mineralization characteristics on the property are similar to those found on some of the Company’s neighbours properties including Goldshore Resources Inc.’s high-profile Moss Gold Project where 2.17 g/t Au over 50.35 metres was intercepted during their recent drilling and at the Delta Resources’ Delta-1 Gold Project where they recently reported a drill intercept of 1.29 g/t gold over 97 metres.
