|Barisan Gold Corp - BG.v owns and operates a number of gold and gold-copper properties in Indonesia's Aceh Province on the northern tip of Sumatra Island. Projects on these properties include 6 identified gold-copper porphyries in the Barisan porphyry belt, the Abong epithermal gold deposit and the Takengon gold & copper porphyry prospect|
Barisan Gold Corporation (TSXV-BG) is pleased to announce initial drilling results at its Upper Tengkereng prospect, located in the Province of Aceh, Indonesia.
Hole UTD-003 was completed on October 14, 2013 to a depth of 922 metres and final assays have been received. Porphyry mineralization was intersected in UTD-003 from 18 metres to the end of the hole at 922 metres. UTD-003 validated the geological model of the Upper Tengkereng porphyry prospect by confirming the width and depth of the high grade zone identified in hole UTD-002. UTD-002, drilled in December 2010, intersected a 59 metre interval grading 1.21 g/t gold + 0.48% copper (2.0g/t gold equivalent or 1.2% copper equivalent) at the bottom of its hole. At the same depth and area, UTD-003 intersected important copper and gold mineralization, including a 262 metre interval grading 0.81 g/t gold + 0.49% copper (1.6g/t gold equivalent or 1.0% copper equivalent). UTD-003 has significantly increased the width of mineralisation along a southeast-northwest direction on the north-eastern edge of the system, further validating the mineralization intersected in UTD-002..
