Walker River Resources Corp announced additional drill results from the late 2019 reverse circulation) drill programs on the Lapon Gold Project, located approximately 60 kilometres southeast of Yerington, Nevada.
RC drill hole LC19-42 returned 96.03 g/t Au (uncut) over 13.7 meters, including 547.05 g/t Au over 1.5 meters, 115.38 g/t Au over 1.5 meters, and 199.06 g/t Au over 1.5 meters, at a depth of approximately 76 meters.
RC drill hole LC19-43 returned 94.81 g/t Au (uncut) over 6.1 meters including 305.25 g/t Au over 1.5 meters, and 73.86 g/t Au over 1.5 meters, at a depth of approximately 84 meters.
RC drill hole LC 19-45 returned 346.4 g/t Au (uncut) over 1.5 meters at a depth of 3 meters.

Key Highlights:

Holes 42 and 43 were only the second and third holes carried out in this new zone discovered in hole 19-35 which returned 1.37 g/t Au over 22.9 meters. (see news release 09-04-19)

Significantly, in Hole 42, the assay interval of 199.06 g/t Au over 1.5 meters, was in granite at the contact with the altered zone.

To date, mineralization has been discovered in broad, altered, fractured and brecciated NE trending structural zones. Anomalous gold values are denoted in many areas within this zone, and significant higher-grade mineralization over significant widths is located within sub vertical en echelon zones of intense alteration and gold enrichment.

To date all the drill holes carried out in the Lapon Rose and the newly discovered zone have returned gold mineralization.

The 2019 exploration program was focused on the expansion and delineation of the gold mineralized zones discovered by the Company, as well as exploring other areas of the project in the search for new mineralization and potential discoveries

Walker's initial geological mapping and prospecting on the Lapon Gold Project, followed by its drill programs, has demonstrated the potential for the emplacement of significant gold mineralization.
