Grande Prairie, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - July 13, 2021) - Angkor Resources Corp. (TSXV: ANK) (OTC Pink: ANKOF) ("Angkor" or "the Company") announces that initial assays from the Wild Boar prospect have expanded the gold anomaly to 1.5 by 1.2 kilometres with up to 25.6 gpt (grams per tonne) Au (gold) from assayed vein samples on the 100%-owned Andong Meas license.
The mineralization appears in clusters with the best cluster consisting of 7 adjacent samples ranging from 5.6 gpt Au up to 25.6 gpt Au over a width of about 12 meters.
Initial exploration indicated large flat veins near surface that were mapped and sampled. The first 56 assayed samples were from 120 metres of hand trenching over the area. Some of the trenches were up to 40 metres long, to follow the veins laterally.
VP Exploration Dennis Ouellette comments, "This area with flat veins was mined by artisanal miners who collected the near-surface material and took it to nearby rivers to pan out the free gold. They left the quartz vein material behind. These flat, blanket-like veins vary between 8 cm to 30 cm thick and to date, up to 550 square metres in size. "

The previous IP program, which was ongoing through May and June, was reviewed for further direction and estimation of additional mineralization at depth. Ouellette describes, "The resistivity sections suggest moderate east dipping structure to the west of the flat veins which is the likely source or 'feeders' for the flat veins. At depth, moderate chargeability is expressed on the upper contact of the structure which is probably reflecting alteration from the feeder vein. The deep 3D survey of the area shows an increase in chargeability on the vein structures at depth indicating an increase of sulphide content below 275 meters."
He continues in outlining next steps, "We maximize all the near-surface work, and complete analysis on Andong Meas and then we determine drill targets for each of the prospects".
Further mapping and sample collection continues on the license at both Wild Boar and Canada Wall prospects and further south on two further prospects called South Creek and JD2.
