Cross River Ventures Corp. (CSE: CRVC) (FSE: C6R) (the "Company" or "Cross River") is pleased to announce the commencement of the fallwinter 2020 exploration program at its Tahsis Gold Project, located on northern Vancouver Island, B.C., proximal to the Zeballos Gold Camp.

Historic exploration programs and the Cross River programs to date have identified four target areas at Tahsis, three previously known and fourth just recently acquired by staking of open ground:

  • Target A consists of a continuous 950 metre section of gold-in-soil values ranging from a minimum of 15 ppb to a maximum of 1,672 ppb associated with the eastern contact area of the Mt. Washington Intrusive Suite quartz diorite.
  • Target B consists of two cluster soil anomalies (450m by 500m and 1300m by 250m) related to the contact between the Quatsino limestone and Karmutsen volcanics.
  • Target C consists of a series of 150 metre to 450-metre-long gold anomalies with values ranging from 6 ppb Au to 146 ppb Au within the Quatsino limestones with interbedded Karmutsen basalts.
  • Target D is the Extra Zone, a gold and copper bearing skarn zone north of Tahsis. The ground came open and was recently acquired. Historic grab sampling returned highlight values of 10.8 grams per tonne gold and 7.97% copper from a garnet skarn carrying an estimated 50% chalcopyrite*.

The fall/winter exploration program will focus on the Extra Zone with a program of closely spaced soil sampling and rock sampling of the historic showings in preparation for subsequent trenching.

  • The 42,334-meter drill program is wrapping-up for the year.
