Golden Culvert, Yukon
A second diamond drill arrived on the Golden Culvert site on August 29th, 2020. Ten holes have been completed for a total of 2,109 metres to September 25th. Both drills are continuing on current holes GC20-11 and GC20-12. Drilling is planned to continue until mid-October, core logging is ongoing and first assay results are expected in late November. Eight diamond drill holes totaling 1,370m and 24 surface trenches, reported in previous exploration programs, have intersected and outlined a 530m-long by 130m-wide mineralized corridor containing six parallel goldbearing structures that are targeted for definition and extensional drilling this season.
The objectives of the 2020 drill program are:
1. Infill definition drilling within the previously drilled and trenched area to define an initial NI 43-101 resource estimate.
2. Extensional drilling beyond the open-ended strike length to extend knowledge from 530m to about 800m of strike.
3. Drilling below the 150m vertical depth previously drilled from surface.
McIntyre Brook, New Brunswick
An exploration team has been engaged to complete an approximate 125 line-kilometre soil sampling program totalling 2,500 soil samples commencing in early October at McIntyre Brook intended to complete coverage over the entire 2,825 hectares covering the 12 kilometres of property strike.
