The Premier property covers more than one hundred square kilometres near the town of Stewart in northwest BC, and includes the old Premier Mine, a past producer of 2.1 MOz Au and 44.9 MOz Ag.
Highlights of Release:
- Hole P15-860, in the “Lunchroom subzone” is now complete and intersected multiple multi ounce gold intersections. A portion of this hole was previously released on September 14, 2015. The best intersection is 226.0 g/t gold over 1.00 m within a broader zone of 12.77 g/t Au over 53.89 m’s. With recent drilling it has been recognized the lunchroom subzone is an anomalous flat lying zone with a moderate west dip, along a flat porphyry/andesite contact. This model suggests drill intersections are largely true thicknesses and this zone remains open on strike to both the east and west.
- Hole P15-858, in the “Lunchroom subzone” intersected 284.00 g/t gold over a 1.00 m interval within a broader zone of 31.00 m’s grading 11.38 g/t gold. This hole is approximately 10 meters down dip to the west of hole P15-860. This release covers results for 6 holes of the 48 holes drilled to date in the “Lunchroom subzone” in a program designed to determine the bulk sample potential of the high grade.
New highlights include:
True widths are generally believed to be 70-90% of intersected widths in the Premier area. (*) samples cut to 1opt or 34.29 g/t Au.
This release is the seventh for the season reporting 7 holes P15-857 to 861 and P15-863 and P15-865. Drilling will continue with two diamond drill rigs, results will be released as they become available. Ascot to date has drilled 30,557 meters in 148 holes in 2015 with drilling ongoing.

Quality Assurance/Quality Control
Analytical work is being carried out by ALS Lab Group. Quality assurance and quality control programs include the use of analytical blanks and standards and duplicates in addition to the labs own internal quality assurance program. All samples were analyzed using multi-digestion with ICP finish and fire assay with AA finish for gold. Samples over 100 ppm silver were reanalyzed using four acid digestion with an ore grade AA finish. Samples over 1,500 ppm silver were fire assayed with a gravimetric finish. Samples with over 10 ppm gold were fire assayed with a gravimetric finish. Identified or suspected metallic gold or silver are subjected to “metallics” assays. Also for extreme high gold grades a concentrate analysis is performed with a fire assay and gravimetric finish accurate up to 999985 ppm Au limit (ALS Au-CON01) method . Sampling and storage are at the company’s secure facility in Stewart with bi-weekly sample shipments made to ALS Labs Terrace prep site.
