Revival Gold Inc. (TSXV: RVG | OTCQX: RVLGF) has resumed drilling on the high-grade Joss target at the company’s Beartrack-Arnett Gold Project located in Idaho, USA.
Approximately 2,000m of core drilling in three holes is planned for this summer at the Joss target.Drilling will focus on the continued definition and expansion of the one-kilometre trend of high-grade gold mineralization with underground mining and mill potential. High-grade intercepts from eighteen core holes previously drilled on the Joss trend typically run from 4–11g/t gold and are estimated to range between one to five metres in true width. Drilling will follow up hole BT21 240D which intersected 4.34g/t gold over 110.6m drilled width, including 12g/t gold over 13.7m drilled width, and 8.8 g/t gold over 11.8m drilled width.
Once the drilling has been completed at Joss, the company’s drill rig will move to its Haidee open pit heap leach resource area, where approximately 2,000m of infill and expansion core drilling is planned. Upon completion of drilling at the Haidee project, the drill rig will move to the Roman’s Trench area for a final 1,000m of core drillingintended to follow-up on historical reverse circulation drilling which intersected 1.90 g/t gold over 21m drilled width and 1.95 g/t gold over 18m drilled width in near-surface oxides.
“2022 marks our fifth, and potentially, most exciting season of drilling at Beartrack-Arnett. We are kicking it off with follow-up drilling on the Joss target, a target which has proven to be catalytic to our view on the potential for high grade underground mill resources at Beartrack-Arnett. We’ll then move to Haidee, where the emphasis is on further definition and expansion of the existing open pit oxide gold resource, and then to Roman’s Trench, which is a new near surface oxide gold exploration drill target for Revival Gold,” said Hugh Agro, Revival Gold, President & CEO.
Core drilling is being conducted by contractor Major Drilling America, Inc. and is expected to continue through September. A grade-thickness longitudinal section showing the approximate locations of the planned drill holes at Joss is presented in the image above.
Depending on rig availability, Revival Gold has planned an additional 3,000m of reverse circulation this year to test various other potential near surface oxide gold exploration opportunities at Beartrack-Arnett based on various soil geochemistry and geophysics anomalies.
