VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Rover Metals Corp. (TSXV: ROVR) (OTCQB: ROVMF) (FSE:4XO) (“Rover” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the start of its Phase 1 Exploration Program at its 100% owned Tobin Gold Project, Winnemucca, NV, USA. Rover has engaged a renowned Carlin gold geologist to assist in the planning of the Phase 1 program.
Tobin Gold Project
In February 2022, Rover acquired a 100% interest in the Tobin Gold Project (“Tobin”), which is comprised of 68 claims within BLM land, for a total of 1,405 acres (or 569 hectares). Tobin is a Carlin-style gold system set in Mesozoic rocks. The project is located about 40 km from the operating Phoenix Gold Mine, which is owned by Nevada Gold Mines, a joint venture between Newmont and Barrick. Tobin is also located about 60 km from i-80 Gold’s Lone Tree Gold Mine, 50 kms from SSR’s Marigold Mine and is in close proximity to other proven gold deposits owned by i-80 Gold, SSR Mining, and Kinross. See property map below for more details.
The property sits in the historical Mt. Tobin mercury district within an area of widespread silicification and banded chalcedony veins over an area of several square kilometers. Both structural and strata bound jasperoids are present in the adjoining Triassic and Paleozoic carbonate and fine-grained clastic sediments along the range-front structure as well as higher in the range. The prospect area was identified during a BLEG stream sediment sampling program. Follow up rock chip sampling along and above the range front confirmed that there are multiple structures carrying mineralization. Gold values run as high as 2.3 g/t Au, with many samples having gold content between 200 ppb Au and 1000 ppb Au. Pathfinder elements run as high as 200 ppm Sb, 1100 ppm As and 29 ppm Hg. Mineralization at the Tobin Project appears to be localized along two subparallel trends. The first is the range-front fault, and the second is structural zone located several tens of meters above the valley that trends somewhat obliquely to the range-front. To date, the better mineralized rocks were largely collected from this second structure located higher on the mountain front.
Judson Culter, CEO at Rover Metals, states, “The Tobin Gold Project is our first low-cost gold exploration project. We believe that future drill programs will be reverse circulation (“RC”) drill programs. Tobin is located in the mining friendly jurisdiction of Nevada, in the Battle Mountain region, which has seen significant consolidation in the past several years.”
