The Granite Creek Mine Project hosts both open pit and underground resources and is strategically located proximal to Nevada Gold Mines' Twin Creeks and Turquoise Ridge mines at the north end of the Battle Mountain-Eureka Trend at its intersection with the Getchell gold belt in Nevada.  The Company has launched its 2021 surface and underground drilling program at Granite Creek that is expected to consist of approximately 22,000 metres of drilling.

The primary goal of the 2021 drill program is to advance underground and open pit opportunities to production. Underground drilling will be focused on delineating sufficient resources for developing a near–term development and mining plan. Ongoing surface drilling will also test near-surface mineralization for metallurgical purposes and open pit definition to advance permitting for open pit mining including heap leach processing on-site.

Matt Gili , President and Chief Operating Officer of i-80 commented: "Advancing the Granite Creek Mine Project to producer status is the Company's primary focus for 2021. The large-scale drilling program is designed to increase resources, advance permitting to facilitate open pit mining, and prepare for test mining ahead of feasibility studies."
