Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - July 14, 2021) - Discovery Harbour Resources Corp. (TSXV: DHR) (OTC Pink: DCHRF) (FSE: 4GW) (the "Company" or "Discovery Harbour") is pleased to announce that Newcrest Resources Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Newcrest Mining Limited ("Newcrest"), has provided the initial results of its program on the Fortuity 89 epithermal gold property in Nevada.
Newcrest's initial activities included a geophysical program encompassing a 675 line kilometre drone airborne magnetic survey, a 250 station ground gravity survey and a 45 line kilometre audio band magnetotellurics (AMT) resistivity survey as well as geological and alteration mapping and sampling with a soil geochemical program. A number of potential targets have been identified which Newcrest is planning to drill test this year.
The Fortuity 89 property encompasses an area of very limited outcrop surrounded by a large plain overlain by gravel cover. Newcrest's program was designed to evaluate the limited outcrop and provide interpreted extrapolations of the geological and structural mineralization controls, which are prospective for concealed low sulphidation epithermal gold mineralization below the shallow unconsolidated alluvial gravels.
Newcrest is planning to undertake a drill program this year, subject to drill rig availability.
Mark Fields, the Company's President and CEO, states, "We are very pleased that Newcrest has rapidly advanced Fortuity 89 and successfully identified prospective targets for a drill program. Discovery Harbour's own Caldera drill program is planned to get underway in early August. Fortuity 89 and Caldera are only a few kilometres apart with similar geology and gold deposition models. It is an exciting time for Discovery Harbour shareholders with drill programs expected for both properties."
Mark Fields, P.Geo., is the Qualified Person for Discovery Harbour as defined in NI 43-101 and has reviewed and approved the technical contents of this news release.
