VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / July 20, 2021 / Sky Gold Corp. (TSXVSKYG)(OTC PINK:SRKZF) ("Sky Gold Corp." or the "Company") is pleased to report the commencement of a diamond drill program on its Evening Star Property, located in Mineral County, Nevada. The Evening Star property is prospective for gold mineralization and CRD (Carbonate Replacement Deposit) base and precious (silver and gold) mineralization, and is located 12 kilometers southeast of the town of Hawthorne. The property is north of, and contiguous to the Pamlico property, owned by Newrange Gold Corp.
Altar Drilling Inc. of Tucson, Ariz., mobilized to the Evening Star property last week, with diamond drilling initiated on the weekend. The Company has received approval from the Bureau of Land Management for its near-term proposed exploration and drill plan under a notice of intent, which is limited to five acres of surface disturbance. EM Strategies, based in Reno, Nev., assisted with the application.
Eight drill site areas have been selected on the Gold Bug, Golden Eagle-Golden Bomber and Good Hope 2 targets. The strong coincident geophysical (gravity and magnetic surveys) anomalies (refer to press release March 17, 2021) interpreted to be related to the silver-rich base-metal skarn and/or carbonate replacement deposit mineralization at the Gold Bug target area will be the initial priority target. This phase of diamond drilling will comprise about 2,500 meters of drilling in 12-15 holes.
Sky Gold's disclosure of a technical or scientific nature in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Garry Clark, P.Geo., who serves as a qualified person under the definition of National Instrument 43-101.
