VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Viva Gold Corp. () (the “” or “Viva”) is pleased to announce assay results for an additional three drill-holes in its 2018-2019 winter reverse circulation (“RC”) drill program at its Tonopah Gold Project located near Tonopah, Nevada.
“Mineralization in TG 1902 commenced at 10 meters below surface and produced an impressive column of over 100 meters of mineralization. This drill-hole infills an area of the north Discovery structural zone that was previously carried in the resource model as low-grade inferred material. We anticipate that this result will add confidence and upgrade the near surface “starter pit” area of the project. TG 1901, TG 1820 and the previously announced TG 1819 were all drilled in a large gap of low-grade inferred mineralization and uncharacterized material between two pods of indicated resource east of the Dauntless zone. We believe that these results will help to infill and connect those two existing pods,” states James Hesketh, President & CEO.

The Tonopah property contains a near-surface low-sulfidation epithermal gold system which includes near vertical structurally controlled quartz-adularia-gold veins and breccias in Tertiary volcanics within a low-angle zone of mineralization which includes and often parallels an erosion surface discontinuity at the top of the Palmetto argillite. Mineralization has been identified in a series of north-striking extensional structural zones within an overall mineralized trend along the regional north-northwest Walker Lane trend, covering an area over 2,000 meters long and 300 meters wide. Downhole lengths are believed to be representative of true thickness for the low-angle zones.
