MAS Gold Corp. ("MAS Gold") (TSXV: MAS) is pleased to announce the completion of the 2021 winter La Ronge drill program with a total of 5,414.4 metres completed.
A total of 2912.9 meters were drilled in 15 holes on the Greywacke Lake property and 2,501.5 meters were drilled in 10 holes on the North Lake property.
The field work is now being finalized and core cutting and sampling is continuing. MAS Gold expects assay results to come in consistently over the coming weeks. These results will be released in batches as the assays are completed and received.
MAS Gold also announces that, on March 17, 2021 , arbitration proceedings between MAS Gold and Golden Band Resources Ltd. ("GBR") were completed. At issue remains the ownership percentage of the La Ronge South Gold Joint Venture between MAS Gold and GBR.
MAS Gold's position remains that it has diluted GBR's interest in the joint venture below 10% and thus has converted their total interest to a 2% Net Smelter Royalty. MAS Gold is further pushing for the transfer of title of all properties subject to the La Ronge South Gold Joint Venture to MAS Gold. While no specific timeline for a ruling was given at the proceedings, MAS Gold is expecting the ruling to be received in the coming weeks.
Additionally, the board of directors of MAS Gold announces that it has appointed Mr. Jim Engdahl to the board. Mr. Engdahl was also recently appointed as the President and CEO of MAS Gold.
