TVI Pacific drills 8.5 metres of 15.6 g/t gold at Balabag, Philippines

Drill hole BLDH-20-351R2 in West Tinago returned 15.60 g/t gold and 493.92 g/t silver over 8.55 meters.

Drill hole BLDH-20-253 in the Miswi House returned 15.58 g/t gold and 515.57 g/t silver over 2.50 meters and an additional 8.55 g/t gold and 134.13 g/t silver over 2.85 meters and 9.39 g/t gold and 222.74 g/t silver over 2.70 meters. 8.62 g/t gold and 127.33 g/t silver over 0.4 meters at a depth of 136.85 meters in Lalab, indicative of persevering with gold mineralization at depth, from drill hole BLDH-20-354.

Fresh drilling has demonstrated the alternative of extra gold mineralization laterally, come surface and at depth. It will moreover silent be renowned that drilling so a long way has been predominantly shallow such that there appears to be dazzling capacity for mineralization to be encountered at deeper ranges than had been examined so a long way.
