Vancouver BC, January 26, 2021 – MAS Gold Corp. (“MAS” – TSX-V:MAS) announces it has received permits to commence core drilling on the Greywacke Lake and Preview-North properties. Crews are in the field re-establishing historical drill access trails on the Greywacke Lake property in preparation for an initial 15-hole NQ core program focused on expanding the Greywacke Lake North deposit. This is being followed by commencement of work at the Preview-North property to re-establish access trails and clear drill sites for a 12-hole NQ core program on the North Lake deposit.
David Tupper, VP of Exploration, states, “We are very pleased to be moving ahead with a program designed to confirm, upgrade, and expand the resources at both the Greywacke North and North Lake gold deposits. We also are designing a core drill program to support the definition of a resource at the Point deposit. With new guidance from Jim Engdahl as MAS CEO, strong technical support from Axiom Exploration Group Ltd. (Axiom) on the geology, geophysics and permitting side of things and assistance from Canada North Environmental Services Limited (CanNorth) on community engagement and development of environmental baselines prior to any potential future development, MAS Gold is ready for a better 2021.”
The currently budgeted 2021 MAS Gold La Ronge Gold Belt work program is slated to include:
At Greywacke Lake Property:
- 15 infill and down dip NQ core holes totalling approximately 3,000 metres (m) at the Greywacke North Deposit
- 10 exploration NQ core holes on the Greywacke Central/South and Lyons zones (roughly 1,500 m)
At the Preview-North Property:
- 12 infill, down dip and on strike NQ core holes totalling approximately 2,500 m. at the North Lake Deposit

- 8 exploration NQ core holes (roughly 1,200 m) at the Point Deposit
- 3 exploration NQ core holes (roughly 400 m) at the Joe Prospect
The 2021 work is also planned to include:
