VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / July 2, 2019 / Unity Metals Corp. ("Unity" or the "Company") (TSXV: UTY) is pleased to announce results from the Phase 2 Shaw backpack drilling program at the Hewitt Point claims, which forms part of the Phillips Arm Gold Project. The intention of the Phase 2 program was to follow up on anomalous gold, silver and base metal values obtained in the Phase 1 program. The four-man crew completed 27 short holes for a total of 40.85m. Assays were performed by ALS Global, an accredited laboratory, and all samples were analyzed by 35 element aqua regia ICP-AES and by fire assay with AA finish, for gold.
The highest gold values obtained in the Phase 2 program was in hole HW19-21, drilled to test a new vein system identified 15m south of the main vein showing, and assayed 8.62g/t Au and 3.8g/t Ag over 38cm from 0.0 - 0.38m.
In addition, hole HW19-07, which was drilled to expand known mineralization at Hewitt Point, assayed 3.70g/t Au and 16.4g/t Ag over 84 cm from 1.15 - 1.99m.
Of the 48 samples taken an additional 8 samples assayed greater than 0.1g/t Au.
A summary of significant results from both programs is presented below:
The Company is extremely pleased with the results of the two programs, which confirm the initial surface expression of the Hewitt Point vein as well as mineralization approximately 15m to the south. The Company is in the process of compiling the new datasets and expects to finalize its diamond drilling targets in the near term.
