Work Begins at Greencastle’s Jewel Ridge Gold Property, Nevada, USA
TORONTO, Feb. 25, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Greencastle Resources Ltd. (“Greencastle” or the “Company”) (TSXV: VGN) is pleased to report that Golden Lake Exploration Inc. (CSE “GLM”) has begun a ground magnetic survey on Greencastle’s Jewel Ridge gold property near Eureka, Nevada, where GLM can earn a 100% interest, subject to certain conditions set out below.
The Jewel Ridge property is located on the south end of Nevada’s prolific Battle Mountain-Eureka trend, along strike and contiguous to Barrick Gold’s two-million-ounce Archimedes/Ruby Hill gold mine to the north and Timberline Resources’ advanced-stage Lookout Mountain project to the south.The geophysical survey will cover the entire Jewel Ridge property and comprise approximately 137 line-kilometres of high-resolution ground magnetics at 50 metres line spacing in an east-west direction. The magnetic survey will assist in the structural interpretation and analysis related to oxide mineralized gold zones.The Jewel Ridge property comprises 96 unpatented lode mining claims and 30 patented claims covering approximately 728 hectares (1,800 acres). The Jewel Ridge property contains several historic small gold mines which align along a north-south-trending stratigraphic contact of Lower Paleozoic sedimentary rocks, as well as several other gold mineralized zones with a variety of structural and lithological controls. The company’s focus is on Carlin-type disseminated gold deposits, the primary focus in the area since the late 1970s.Nevada Carlin-type gold deposits have a combined endowment of more than 250 million ounces, which are concentrated (85 per cent) in only four trends or camps of deposits: Carlin, Cortez (Battle Mountain-Eureka), Getchell and Jerritt Canyon.Golden Lake can earn a 100 percent interest in the Jewel Ridge property by paying Greencastle $155,000 in cash, issuing five million Golden Lake shares and spending $750,000 over three years. Golden Lake will also cover the costs of the underlying lease and all BLM (Bureau of Land Management) and county fees. Varying net smelter return (NSR) royalties are applicable on the property with buy-downs in place to reduce the NSRs to nil and 1 per cent on various claims and leases.Qualified personGreencastle disclosure of a technical or scientific nature in this news release has been reviewed and approved by James Pirie, P.Eng., who serves as a qualified person under the definition of National Instrument 43-101.For more information, please visit www.greencastle.ltdOr contact Anthony Roodenburg, CEO
