Canadian-based Otis Gold has 4 projects in Idaho, including its flagship Kilgore project and the exploration stage Oakley project. The 100% owned Kilgore Project is an open pit, heap leach gold project with a NI 43-101 compliant global resource estimate from 2012, showing 820,000 ounces of gold in the indicated and inferred categories, at 0.54 grams per tonne.
The current resource estimate does not include drill results from 2012 to 2016. Many of these holes encountered mineralization in the previously untested Aspen Formation. Mineralization in this formation is in places higher grade than the overlying volcanics.
Results from drilling have included:
- 94.5 metres grading 4.21 grams per tonne gold
- 30.5 metres grading 5.37 grams per tonne gold, and
- 85.4 metres grading 2.5 grams per tonne gold
Analyst Adam Melnyk stated: "Over the next year, we expect that Kilgore will transition towards being viewed by investors as a low capital heap leach project. Given the project's location in Idaho and recent M&A activity in the sector (Exeter, Integra, IAMGOLD's Cote project), we expect the advancement of Kilgore to result in positive share price performance for Otis."
