TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / February 16, 2021 / AurCrest Gold Inc. (the "Company" or "AurCrest") (TSXV:AGO) is pleased to announce that the results of a Spatiotemporal Geochemical Hydrocarbons ("SGH") survey, interpreted by Activation Laboratories Ltd. ("Actlabs"), have reinforced a high priority CARDS target at our 100% owned Ranger Lake Property (the "Property"), approximately 10 km due east of Balmertown in the renowned Red Lake Gold District. The CARDS targets, identified by Windfall Geotek Inc. ("Windfall"), were described previously by the Company (press releases September 2, 2020 and September 16, 2020).
Based on these promising results, AurCrest has staked an additional 81 contiguous cell claims expanding the current Ranger boundaries in order to protect the Company's interests in the immediate area.
Given topographic and sampling constraints on the Property, the SGH survey was designed to test only one of three high priority targets, the eastern area, inferred from the CARDS modelling. A total of 418 soil samples, including 28 replicates, were analyzed by Actlabs, using SGH exploration geochemistry (press release November 16, 2020).
"It is very significant that both the CARDS modelling and the subsequent SGH interpretation independently categorize this target within a high probability percentile," said Chris Angeconeb, President & CEO. "We are very excited to have this additional layer of geochemical validation to support our nascent geologic and structural model and are eager to advance a broader understanding of the potential of our Ranger Lake gold property."
The Company looks forward to drill testing these targets during this winter season. AurCrest has applied for an exploration permit to diamond drill and conduct other future exploration activities to include extending the SGH sampling program to cover other priority CARDS targets on the Property.
