TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / June 4, 2024 / Lahontan Gold Corp (TSXV:LG)(OTCQB:LGCXF) (the "Company" or "Lahontan") is pleased to announce that it is has completed Phase One of its 2024 drilling program at the Company's Flagship Santa Fe Mine project. Lahontan completed six reverse-circulation drill holes totaling 1,303 metres, four at the Slab target area and two at the Calvada East target. The drill program targeted areas that have the potential to greatly expand the project's Mineral Resource Estimate ("MRE") and help support a Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") of the project planned for later this year. Samples from the drill holes have been submitted to American Assay Laboratories in Reno, Nevada for gold and silver analyses.

Kimberly Ann, Lahontan Founder, CEO, President, and Director commented: "The first Phase of drilling at the Santa Fe Mine project was focused on the Slab and Calvada East areas. Logging of drill cuttings suggests that drilling was successful in hitting the targeted gold and silver mineralized intervals. Based on the results of logging, an additional drill hole has been added to the program for the northern portion of the Slab target. Phase Two of the drilling program will commence later this week. Field work and site inspection by the PEA team will also take place this week; the PEA remains on schedule for September completion. The Company will continue to support market momentum and provide drill results, updates on permitting, and PEA progress reports in the months and weeks ahead".
