Revival Gold Releases Infill Drill Results at Haidee Target

2021-11-03 04:40:19

TORONTO, Nov. 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Revival Gold Inc. (TSXV: RVG, OTCQX: RVLGF) (“Revival Gold” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce results from the first eight infill drill holes completed in the Haidee target area in connection with the Company’s 2021 exploration program at the Beartrack-Arnett Gold Project (“Beartrack-Arnett”) located in Idaho, USA.

Each of the eight holes reported below encountered above cut-off grade, near-surface oxidized gold mineralization. Highlights include:

The 2021 drilling program at Haidee was designed to upgrade and expand the deposit’s current Inferred heap leachable mineral resources. In addition, the program included drill holes to obtain engineering data for the planned late-2022 Pre-Feasibility Study. A total of 15 holes were completed with four holes drilled for geotechnical and hydrological purposes. Assay results for the remaining seven drill holes are expected by year end.

“Today’s initial infill drilling results have bolstered our confidence in the mineral resource at Haidee”, said Hugh Agro, Revival Gold, President & CEO. “AC21-073D ended in oxide mineralization averaging over one gram per tonne gold opening up the potential for additional resource expansion opportunities at depth beneath the shallow drilling to-date. The Haidee deposit remains open in all directions. Additional drill results are expected in December, and we look forward to reporting an updated resource estimate next quarter”, Agro added.

Detailed results for drill holes released today are presented in the table below:

QA/QC Program

Quality Assurance/Quality Control consists of the regular insertion of certified reference materials, duplicate samples and blanks into the sample stream. Check samples are submitted to an umpire laboratory at the end of the drilling program. Sample results are analyzed immediately upon receipt and all discrepancies are investigated. Samples are submitted to the ALS Geochemistry sample preparation facility in Twin Falls, Idaho. Gold analyses are performed at the ALS Geochemistry laboratory in Reno, Nevada or Vancouver, British Columbia, and multi-element geochemical analyses are completed at the ALS Minerals laboratory in Vancouver, British Columbia. ALS Minerals is an ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accredited lab.

Gold assays are determined on samples consisting of half drill core by Fire Assay and AAS on a 30-gram nominal sample weight (Au-AA23) for Beartrack, and Fire Assay and AAS on a 50-gram nominal sample weight (Au-AA24) for Arnett. For shallow holes targeting leachable mineralization, gold is also determined by cyanide leach with an AAS finish on a nominal 30-gram sample weight (Au-AA13). Multi element geochemical analyses are completed on selected drill holes using the ME-MS 61M method.
