Eureka Announces Assay Results From Diamond Drilling Program At Gold Creek

Vancouver, British Columbia, July 25, 2017 - Eureka Resources Inc. (“Eureka” or the “Company”) (TSXV-EUK) is pleased to announce that it has received assay results from its three hole diamond drill program within the “Camp” zone at its Gold Creek Property (“Gold Creek” or the “Property”) located in the Cariboo Mining District, near Likely, British Columbia. The best results include 33.20 g/t Au over 1.25 meters in hole GC 17-035 and 17.95 g/t Au over 1.5m in hole GC 17 034.


Drill collars located within and adjacent to Spanish Mountain Gold Ltd. (TSXV: SPA) core storage area.

The 2017 drilling program consisted of 3 diamond drill holes totaling 331.00 meters which was focused on a gold-bearing zone, the “Camp” zone, containing disseminated and high-grade vein and fault controlled gold mineralization encountered by recent historical operators. All significant intersections from the 2017 drill program are found in the table below.

Gold Creek was acquired by Eureka by way of an option agreement with Bullion Gold Ltd. in November 2016. The Property consists of 33 mineral claims covering 9,673 hectares and is accessed via a well-maintained all-weather road.

The gold mineralization is believed to be of orogenic in nature and found to be contained within the same Mesozoic sedimentary package as at Spanish Mountain located approximately 8 km to the southeast, and as at the Company’s FG property approximately 45 km to the southeast. Eureka’s first drill program at Gold Creek serves as verification of the work conducted in 2008 and 2011 by Bullion Gold Ltd. and will assist in designing future exploration programs which will focus on delineating strike, width and depth of this zone as well as other prospective areas on the property.

“The results of this program both met and exceeded our initial expectations,” stated Mike Sweatman, President, adding “We designed the program to twin a reverse circulation drill hole that was lost in mineralization, and to infill other areas within the Camp zone that had been previously drilled in the immediate area. We were successful in both duplicating historical results and in determining mineralization continues to depth. We are confident that both careful drilling and sampling techniques combined with rigorous assay procedures will lead us forward towards additional significant gold discovery in this highly prospective property.”

A program for ongoing drilling and exploration is currently being planned. Subsequent drilling and exploration programs will focus on determining the extent of strike, depth and width of this prospective zone. Funding for these future programs is yet to be determined, however, initial drilling may utilize existing flow-through funds.

2017 Diamond Drill Results

The assays presented below have been derived using two separate assay methods for the purpose of attempting to accurately represent the samples gold content. These two methods are Screen Metallic and regular fire assay procedures. The reasons for utilizing these two methods are due to the observed nuggety nature of the gold mineralization that has been encountered to date. Nugget effect occurs when two fractions of the same sample can yield radically different results due to the heterogeneity of the gold mineralization placement within a sample. The Company has engaged Gary H. Giroux, MA.Sc., P.Eng. to advise on future sampling protocols in order to assist in providing statistically valid results for future resource calculations. Readers are cautioned that the property is at an early stage and these results are considered the first phase and best efforts of our exploration program to date.

Kristian Whitehead, the Company’s VP Exploration stated, “We are very encouraged by these results in that the improved diamond drill core recoveries through the diligent efforts of the Dorado drill crew have enabled an enhanced look at what we believe is a significant zone of disseminated and high-grade vein and fault controlled gold mineralization that warrants aggressive follow up”.

The drill core sampling procedure follows rigorous protocol standards established for nuggety gold deposits, as follows:

Once received from the drill and logged, all drill core samples are sawn in half, labelled and bagged. The remaining drill core has been stored at a secure site in Horsefly, BC. The Company conducted a rigorous quality control (QC) program which included the utilization of blanks, standards, duplicates as well as selecting additional samples to be conducted by SGS as an umpire lab. Additionally, upon receiving initial assay results select zones where delineated and samples contained within were re-assayed utilizing the Screen Metallic method. The QAQC program was designed, approved and was overseen by Kristian Whitehead, P.Geo.

Drill core samples were submitted to ALS Minerals’ analytical facility in North Vancouver, British Columbia for preparation and analysis. ALS Minerals is accredited to the ISO/IEC 17025 standard for gold assays and all analytical methods include quality control materials at set frequencies with established data acceptance criteria.

Samples submitted for analysis were initially assayed for gold in addition to a 48 multi-elemental geochemical package. Analysis for gold was conducted using 4-acid digestion and a 50g pulp subject to fire assay fusion with atomic absorption (AAS) finish. Select samples were re-analyzed using screen metallic fire assay whereby an approximate 1000g sample of pulp material was screened to 106 um. All coarse material not passing through the 106 um screen was entirely assayed representing the coarse fraction. The fine fraction was determined by assaying two 50g samples and averaging their respective Au values. The final Au value was determined by way of weighted average of the coarse and fine pulp material.
