Kingston, ON-based Delta Resources Ltd. has been selected to receive up to $200,000 from the Ontario Junior Exploration Program to further advance its exploration efforts at the Delta-1 property in Thunder Bay, Ontario.

Delta Resources is amid an extensive exploration program at its newly expanded Delta-1 project, including up to 20,000 metres of drilling, a surface geological mapping program, further prospecting, and sampling. Assay results are now pending for over 40 drill holes totalling nearly 14,000 metres.

“We are thrilled to receive the OJEP grant this year again. The funds go a long way to advance and expand our exploration program on a non-dilutive basis at the Delta-1 project, enhancing value for all stakeholders,” says André Tessier, president and CEO of Delta.

DELTA-1 covers approximately 107 square kilometres located 50 kilometres west of Thunder Bay, ON, where a gold mineralized zone 950 m long was outlined through drilling in a multi-kilometre-scale intense alteration halo. Best grades to date include a drill intercept of 14.8 g/t Au over 11.9 metres, within a broader interval of 5.92 g/t Au over 31 m. The zone is open in all directions.
