Vancouver, March 11, 2021 – MAS Gold Corp. (“MAS Gold” – TSX.V: MAS) is pleased to provide an update on the status of it 2021 drill campaign at its Greywacke Lake and Preview-North Properties in the Paleoproterozoic Kisseynew Domain of the La Ronge Greenstone Belt, Saskatchewan, northeast of the community of La Ronge.
As previously announced February 25, 2021, the current phase of drilling has completed at the Greywacke Lake property with a total of 2,887.9 metres drilled. Figure 1 shows the locations of the 2021 drilling at the Greywacke North, Greywacke Central and Lyons Zone areas. Core processing is continuing with samples delivered to the TSL Labs in Saskatoon from holes GW21-129 through GW21-133; results are expected by month end.
Two drills are currently operating at North Lake on MAS Gold’s Preview-North Property, roughly 50 kilometres northeast of the community of La Ronge. Five holes (NL21-52 through NL21-56) are complete for a total of 1,387 metres. The program of eight to ten holes, totaling roughly 2,500 metres, is targeting the down dip extensions of the deposit with the objective to expand the resource to depth (see Figure 2).
Drilling at the Point deposit area, also on the Preview-North Property, requires collaring from the ice surface of East Ramsland Lake. Unfortunately rising temperatures have resulted in inadequate ice conditions, requiring the postponement of this drilling. Alternatives plans for drilling at Point in 2021 are being examined. The current budgeted drill footage has been reallocated to the North Lake drill program.
