Revival Gold Commences Drilling at Beartrack
TSX VENTURE: RVG
TORONTO, May 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Revival Gold Inc. (TSXV: RVG, OTCQB: RVLGF) (“Revival Gold” or the "Company"), a growth-focused gold exploration and development company, has commenced drilling at the Beartrack Gold Project (“Beartrack”) located in Lemhi County, Idaho.
Drilling resumed at Beartrack this season with one rig on May 23rd. Approximately 1,000 meters of core drilling are planned at Beartrack before shifting the drilling focus for 2019 to the neighbouring Arnett Gold Project (“Arnett”). A second rig is expected to be mobilized to Arnett next month. With the addition of the second rig, this year’s planned 5,000-meter core drill program at Beartrack-Arnett is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2019.
Revival Gold’s 2019 exploration program is intended to continue to build on the scale of the known gold system at Beartrack and to advance toward a preliminary resource estimate of leachable gold material at Arnett. The Beartrack holes are to be located within the mineralized trend approximately 650 meters south along strike from the current Beartrack mineral resource.
Subject to permitting, drilling will shift in late June to the Haidee area at Arnett for an additional 20-25 core holes. The objective at Arnett is to follow up on Revival Gold’s 2018 core drilling at Haidee and to develop an initial resource of near surface oxide gold material.
In addition to the historical gold resource in the Haidee area, several additional targets are present within the Arnett land package. Key targets of interest include the Roman’s Trench area, which, along with the Haidee and Little Chief Extension area, lie in the northern contact of the Arnett stock, the Italian Mine, South Arnett-Twin Long Drops, Thompson-Hibbs, Shenon Gulch and the Porcupine areas, which occur within a broader three- to four-kilometer-long trend near the southern contact of the Arnett stock. All the areas noted above have been subjected to limited, historical reverse circulation drilling and are targets for future drilling.
“With funding in place and numerous high-quality drill targets available at both Beartrack and Arnett, Revival Gold has an exciting exploration season ahead”, said Hugh Agro, President & CEO.
