- Stream sediment sampling has identified a large, robust gold anomaly named Last Chance, measuring 15km2 in area and located in the Tintina Gold Province, Alaska.
- The Tintina Gold Province is host to giant gold deposits including Donlin Creek (45 Moz Au), Pogo (10 Moz Au) and Fort Knox (13.5 Moz Au).
- Within the greater gold anomaly, a highly anomalous core area with over 3.5km of east-west strike length has been defined by four first order stream catchments at >100ppb (0.1g/t) gold with a peak value >0.4g/t gold.
- Stream sediment sampling also identified a strong zinc-copper anomaly named the Moose prospect.
- White Rock has moved quickly and has secured an additional 84km2 of tenements over these two high priority target areas, expanding the Company's total district-scale strategic tenement package to 559km2.
- Drilling at the high-grade Dry Creek VMS deposit intersected 1.4m @ 13.9% zinc, 4.4% lead, 115g/t silver, 0.8g/t gold & 0.3% copper for 21.6% Zn Eq1 interpreted to be the extension to the high grade Fosters lens, the upper of two lenses in the Dry Creek deposit.
- Previous drilling at Dry Creek tested the deposit to a depth of just 200 metres. The success of this 200 metre plus down-dip step out drill hole suggests considerable potential for the deposit to grow in size and tonnes along its entire 1,200 metre strike length.
- Drilling terminated due to poor ground conditions in the hangingwall chert sequence believed to be above the high-grade Discovery lens stratigraphic position.
