Vancouver, B.C., December 9, 2020; Jayden Resources Inc. (“Jayden” or the “Company”) (TSXV:JDN) is pleased to announce that Teuton Resources Corp. (“Teuton”) (TUO:TSXV) has discovered a new zone of mineralization on its Harry property averaging 7.86 ounces/ton gold (269.5 g/t) across a 2 metre width (see Teuton news release dated December 9, 2020). The full width of the zone has not been defined due to overburden cover.
The new showing, called the “Milestone”, was found during prospecting by Teuton geologists and occurs in virgin ground exposed in recent years by retreating ice. Locally, a 300m wide zone with gossanous outcrops interspersed with glacial till features intense quartz-sericite-pyrite alteration. The main showing contains coarse dendrites of visible gold within a milky quartz vein breccia. Many of the surrounding outcrops have small veins carrying pyrite and galena (lead sulfide).
During the 2020 assessment program on Harry carried out by Teuton, a modest number of grab and chip samples were taken during prospecting traverses of the northern portion of the Harry property. A grab sample from the Milestone showing ran 45.3 ounces/ton gold (1,553 g/t) and 18.7 ounce/ton silver (642 g/t). The showing consists of a 2m wide quartz vein breccia trending 310 degrees. The second of two, 1m sub-samples taken across the zone (050 degrees) was the richest: it ran 15.7 ounce/ton gold (538 g/t). Other samples taken in the surrounding gossans, mostly grabs, returned values between trace gold and a high of 0.63 ounce/ton gold (21.6 g/t gold).
Jayden has received conditional acceptance from the TSX Venture Exchange for the acquisition of the Harry property (the “Property”) from Teuton (see Jayden news release dated November 5, 2020). Pursuant to the terms of the option agreement entered into between the Company and Teuton, the Company may acquire a 55% interest in the Property by making aggregate cash payments totaling $180,000 ($25,000 in the first year) and incurring $2,000,000 ($100,000 in the first year) in exploration expenditures over the course of 5 years. An additional 20% interest in the Property can be acquired by Jayden taking the Property into commercial production on or before the 15th anniversary date. Teuton will retain a 2% net smelter royalty on the Property. Final acceptance of the acquisition is subject to the Company meeting certain filing requirements with the Exchange including but not limited to providing an updated NI43-101 Report on the Property which has been submitted.
