Spartan Gold has discovered a new Carlin-style gold mineralisation, alteration and felsic dike at Ziggurat property in Nevada, US.

The new ‘Whitehorse’ discovery occurs in a window of Paleozoic rocks previously unexamined by modern geologists.

The discovery extends to the south-east into a previously mapped mineralised area indicating a possible large size resource for the overall target area.

The firm has recently completed magnetic surveys on the property and the new Whitehorse discovery report will be added to the updated NI 43-101 compliant technical report.

The firm’s geological team has taken the rock chip samples from the Whitehorse and delivered them to an assay lab for geochemical analysis.

Ziggurat property is controlled by Spartan and its partner Mexivada Mining Corporation.
