Usha Resources Ltd. ("USHA" or the "Company") (TSXV:USHA)(OTCQB:USHAF) is pleased to announce that it has executed a drilling contract for its upcoming maiden drill program at the Lost Basin Gold-Copper Project located in Mohave County, Arizona. The Company intends on completing a reconnaissance visit by its personnel and the drilling contractor in the coming weeks to review drill sites after which it will commence with the construction of access roads and drill pads in preparation for drilling
The Company has elected to proceed with diamond core drilling for its maiden program to better understand the lithological and structural data at the Site. The Company plans to drill 1,500 metres over two phases with the results of the maiden program being used to delineate a larger follow-up drill campaign.
The first phase of the drilling program will be part of a larger work program that will include trenching, soil sampling, chip sampling, and further prospecting that is anticipated to be completed over approximately 40 days.
The Company's program will focus on the following key mineralized sections on the property:
- Red Basin: Area where highly anomalous soil samples assayed as high as 11.1 g/t Au and historical sampling has identified shallow intervals as high as 1.7 g/t Au over 26 metres.
- Copper Blowout: A major feature on the property with several copper showings assaying above 1% Cu and as high as 1.53% Cu over 2 metres in chip samples.
- Mallory's Trench: A historical trench where chip samples collected assayed gold values as high as 2.6 g/t Au over 2 metres.
- Ideas Lode West: An exciting new prospect where the structure containing the gold-bearing quartz veining extends for hundreds of metres and grab samples assayed as high as 45.4 g/t Au.
"Advancing the gold and copper stories at Lost Basin is a primary objective of ours as we move into 2022 and we are extremely excited to continue our exploration at the property," stated Deepak Varshney, CEO of USHA. "The property is a unique exploration and development opportunity in a top-tier mining jurisdiction that has largely escaped systematic modern exploration. Lost Basin offers a number of compelling attributes that you like to see prior to drilling - favourable geology, strong assays from initial sampling, and participation in what is becoming a very active exploration camp. This program is going to jumpstart what will be a very active year for us across a portfolio that includes copper, nickel, cobalt and gold - it's going to be a busy and exciting year!"
