Golden Ridge Resources Ltd. (TSXV:GLDN) (“Golden Ridge” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that crews have been mobilized, and drilling has commenced at it’s 100% owned Hank Project (“Hank” or the “Property”), located in BC’s prolific Golden Triangle. Details about the 2019 program can be found in a Company news release dated May 23, 2019. The first hole of the program is designed to test the northeast extension of the Williams Zone beyond HNK-18-013 which returned 318.73m* of 0.42g/t Au, 0.34% Cu, and 2.20g/t Ag. Drill pad construction for HNK-19-002 and HNK19-003 in the Boiling Zone, and HNK-19-004 and HNK-19-005 in the Creek Zone has begun and is expected to be completed within the week.
- – 2019 drilling will focus on expanding upon two drilling discoveries made by the Company during the 2018 campaign at the Williams (HNK-18-013: 318.73m* of 0.42g/t Au, 0.34% Cu, and 2.20g/t Ag) and Boiling (HNK-18-010: 20.00m* of 11.63g/t Au and 13.8g/t Ag) Zones.- The 2019 campaign will utilize a Zinex A5 heli-portable drill rig with drilling capabilities down to 1325m (NQ), allowing the Company to test the Williams Zone at far greater depths then possible during the 2018 campaign.
– Golden Ridge will be operating from the Company’s exploration camp located on Highway 37, within 15 kilometres of the project, allowing for low-cost highway access and minimal flight times during the 2019 campaign.
Mike Blady, C.E.O, president, and Director of Golden Ridge, commented: “We are very excited to be commencing our field season nearly a month earlier than last year. A low snowpack and early spring will allow us to aggressively test and build out on our two new drilling discoveries from last year. 2019 will be a defining year for our Company as we continue to unlock the potential of the Hank project.”
