Aston Bay Holdings to Resume Drilling at Buckingham Gold Project, Virginia, USA

TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / June 10, 2020 / Aston Bay Holdings Ltd. (TSXV:BAY)(OTCQB:ATBHF) ("Aston Bay" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it will resume drilling at its Buckingham Gold Property located in Central Virginia, USA, on June 15th, 2020. In addition, the Company announces that all core samples from the initial (March 2020) phase of the current drill program have been shipped to the laboratory for analysis, with results anticipated in the coming weeks. Samples will be analyzed by standard fire assay techniques, which will include metallic screen assaying of selected intervals with visible alteration and mineralization (including visible gold). Funding is in place to complete the remaining ~800 metres (m) of the current drill program and to conduct additional follow-up drilling.

A total of 1,218 m was drilled in ten diamond drill holes at the Buckingham Main Zone in March 2020 prior to the suspension of the current program due to Covid-19 virus restrictions (see March 24, 2020 Aston Bay press release). Logging of the core confirmed that the 2020 drilling has intersected veining and alteration similar to that encountered in the 2019 drilling of the zone, which included core-length intercepts of up to 35.6 g/t Au over 2.03m and 24.7 g/t Au over 3.57m in gold-bearing quartz veins, as well as 2.2 g/t Au over 18.1m and 1.9 g/t Au over 22.2m in adjacent but separate sericite-quartz-pyrite alteration zones (see June 5, 2019 Aston Bay release).

The Company has acquired the exclusive rights to an integrated dataset over certain prospective private lands and has signed agreements with timber and land companies which grants the company the option to lease the mineral rights to 11,065 acres of land located in central Virginia. These lands are located within a gold-copper-lead-zinc mineralized belt prospective for Carolina slate belt gold deposits and Virginia gold-pyrite belt deposits, as well as sedimentary VMS, exhalative (SEDEX) and Broken Hill (BHT) type base metal deposits. Don Taylor, who led the predecessor company to Blue Ridge and assembled the dataset, has joined the Company's Advisory Board and will be directing the Company's exploration activities for the Blue Ridge Project. The Company is actively exploring the Buckingham Gold Project in Virginia and is in advanced stages of negotiation on other lands in the area.
