Irving Resources Encounters High-Grade Veins at Omu, Japan

Irving Resources


“Phase One drilling at Omu Sinter has yielded highly encouraging results,” commented Dr. Quinton Hennigh, director and technical advisor to Irving. “Expected “hit” rates when drilling epithermal veins is often 50% or less. We managed to intersect significant vein mineralization in seven of eight holes. Given these holes are widely spaced and that we appear to be above the prospective boiling level, Omu Sinter displays excellent potential for hosting a sizeable vein network. Well-defined targets generated by CSAMT will help guide Phase Two drill targeting slated to begin in January 2020.”

“At Omui Mine, our first holes at Honpi reveal multiple promising vein intercepts including one displaying ginguro and electrum in hole 19OMI-006,” continued Dr. Hennigh. “Current drill holes are testing some notable deep-rooted CSAMT anomalies at levels closer to the anticipated boiling horizon at around 350 m below surface. CSAMT results from Hokuryu display a robust system there. We have a long list of drill targets across the Omu region.”
