TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / June 18, 2024 / Lahontan Gold Corp (TSXV:LG)(OTCQB:LGCXF) (the "Company" or "Lahontan") is pleased to announce that it has confirmed an easterly extension of shallow gold and silver mineralization at the Company's West Santa Fe project located in Nevada's prolific Walker Lane only 13 kilometres from Lahontan's Flagship Santa Fe Mine Project. Detailed fieldwork, including geologic mapping, combined with reinterpretation of a previous magnetic geophysical survey, has confirmed a near 1,000 metre extension of gold and silver mineralization from the area of closely spaced historic drilling. The historic drilling, totally 171 drill holes for approximately 13,000 metres, defines shallow, oxidized, gold and silver mineralization in the area of the Mindora underground mine. The recently completed work shows that this zone of mineralization continues to the east, an area marked by numerous shallow adits, prospect pits, and outcrops of hydrothermally altered rock. Analysis of the historic drilling has already generated excellent targets for drilling, however, with this new extension to gold and silver mineralization confirmed, the size of the potential mineralized zone and drilling target is dramatically increased.

Kimberly Ann, Lahontan Founder, CEO, President, and Director commented: "The completion of this work at West Santa Fe is vital to understanding the full size and therefore potential of the West Santa Fe project. We will continue detailed mapping and sampling at West Santa Fe to finalize drill targets, especially in the area of this newly confirmed easterly extension to gold and silver mineralization. We have also completed modeling conceptual pit shells based on the historic drilling, this data will guide confirmatory drilling in the Mindora mine area. Overall, great progress at West Santa Fe".
