Greencastle Resources Ltd. (TSXV: “VGN”) is pleased to report sampling results
from the Company’s Jewel Ridge gold property in Nevada where drilling is expected to begin later this month.
Sampling carried out by Golden Lake Exploration Inc. (“GLM”) at the A & E target area returned strong gold and silver values up to 5.48 grams per tonne (g/t Au) and 324.0 grams per tonne silver (g/t Ag) and up to 14.20 g/t Au and 562.0 g/t Ag from the Croesus-Connelly targets. One grab sample was also taken from the adit area at the South Eureka Tunnel target which returned 9.61 g/t Au and 78.9 g/t Ag. This is one of the key target areas for drilling later this month.
The A & E target is located approximately 500 metres south-southeast of the Radio Tower target. Historic mine dumps are scattered in the A & E area, interpreted to be from the Sterling mine operations, focused on carbonate-replacement-style mineralization.
Samples comprise grab rock samples from dumps of old mine workings and rock outcrop exposures. Samples are not representative of the grade of mineralization of an occurrence but are useful in guiding further exploration.
Alford Drilling LLC, of Spring Creek, Nev. has been retained to complete a minimum 5,000-foot, reverse circulation drill program. GLM reports drilling is set to commence later this month (see: GLM News July 8, 2020).
Jewel Ridge is located in the heart of a major gold-producing district on the south end of Nevada’s prolific Battle Mountain — Eureka trend, along strike and contiguous to Barrick Gold’s two-million ounce Archimedes/Ruby Hill mine to the north and Timberline Resources’ advanced-stage Lookout Mountain project to the south. The property covers approximately 728 hectares (1800 acres) and contains several historic open-pit gold mines, gold-mineralized zones and high-grade silver values.
GLM can earn a 100-per-cent interest in Jewel Ridge, subject to certain royalties, by paying Greencastle CDN $155,000 in cash, issuing 5.0 million GLM shares, and spending CDN $750,000 over three years.
