Precipitate Gold Corp.
Precipitate Gold Corp. is a mineral exploration company focused on exploring and advancing its mineral property interests in the Tireo Gold Trend of the Dominican Republic. Over 5.0 million gold equivalent ounces have been identified in the Tireo Gold Trend in recent years while vast areas of prospective ground have remained untested.
The Company also maintains assets in British Columbia and southeast Yukon Territory and is actively evaluating additional high-impact property acquisitions with the potential to expand the Company's portfolio and increase shareholder value.
Juan de Herrera Gold Project in the Dominican Republic
The Company is focused on advancing several emerging targets within its 100%-owned flagship Juan de Herrera Project. The Juan de Herrera project is variably road accessible and is well located within the Tireo Gold Trend in western Dominican Republic. The Tireo Gold Trend is a highly prospective and emerging exploration camp with intermediate sulphidation epithermal and VMS styles of mineralization. The Juan de Herrera project concessions cover an estimated 40 kilometres of prospective strike length of target Tireo lithologies.
Current Focus and Goals
Ginger Ridge Main and East Zones Exploration Summary
Precipitate's primary exploration focus is to identify intermediate sulphidation epithermal and VMS styles of mineralization. Since announcing its initial Dominican Republic property acquisitions in August 2012, the Company has completed multiple phases of regional and local scale exploration work.
To date detailed exploration programs have focused on the "Ginger Ridge Main Zone", as well as the recently identified "Ginger Ridge East Zone". The Ginger Ridge South zone has seen limited exploration including surface sampling and trenching and single drill hole GR17-15.
Detailed exploration at Ginger Ridge Main Zone includes geological mapping, rock-soil sampling, hand trenching, multiple phases of induced polarization and ground magnetic geophysical surveying and 15 diamond drill holes totalling 3,270 metres (3 phases).
Early drilling (2014) at the Ginger Ridge Main Zone discovered a new zone of gold-enriched massive sulphide mineralization; ‘discovery hole' GR14-05 cut 98.1 metres of strongly disseminated, semi to massive sulphides (dominantly pyrite), containing an 18.0 metre wide interval of 4.54 g/t gold (including 5.0 metres at 13.37 g/t gold).
Holes reported from Phase 2 drilling (holes 7 to 11) were not as robust as the mineralization identified in the discovery hole. Subsequently completed holes GR17-12 to 15 reported results for the Main and South parts of the Ginger Ridge area. Highlight results include the discovery of mineralization in a previously untested anomaly to the south of the Main zone yielding a 1.1 m interval of 2.59 g/t gold, (including 0.11% copper, 0.6% lead and 0.65% zinc) (GR17-15) and a Main Zone drill intercept of 14.73 m of 1.16 g/t gold, including 2.67 m of 2.23 g/t gold (GR17-13).

On November 28, 2017, Precipitate Gold Corp. announced that it has increased the size of its Island Zinc project located in north Vancouver Island, British Columbia, by staking an additional 675 hectares of prospective ground west of the original claim block. The new claim block covers an on-strike extension of the same favourable target limestone rocks found at the property's Main zone and includes three historical zinc-lead-silver mineral showings.
The Island Zinc property now includes two non-contiguous claims covering a combined total of 1,023 hectares.
On October 24, 2017, Precipitate Gold Corp. announced that it has completed an extensive and detailed soil sampling program throughout the southern portion of the Company's 100-per-cent-owned Juan de Herrera project in the Dominican Republic. Field crews have collected approximately 8,500 new soil samples and are now analyzing the samples with a portable XRF (X-ray fluorescence) analyzer.
