Sitka GOLD PROVIDES UPDATE ON BURRO CREEK GOLD PROPERTY DRILL PROGRAM
VANCOUVER, CANADA – February 3rd, 2020: Sitka Gold Corp. (“Sitka” or the “Company”) (CSE: SIG) (FSE: 1RF) is pleased to announce it has sent ALS Laboratories the second shipment of drill core for analysis from its ongoing diamond drill program at its Burro Creek Gold Property located in Arizona. The shipment contains drill core samples from BC20-060 & BC20-061. These are the first step-out holes along a newly constructed road south of the previously drilled gold and silver mineralization. These holes lie 75m SSE of BC19-057 which was drilled within the Burro Creek historic gold-silver resource area. (See news release dated November 12, 2019). BC20-060 intercepted the Burro Vein at 42.28-52.91m and BC20-061 intercepted it down dip at 99.85-123.35m. Both holes are vertical with BC20-061 40m ENE of BC20-060. These holes define a very strong presence of the Burro Vein at the south margin of the historic resource and north edge of the Mobile Metal Ion (MMI) geochemical survey grid. Drilling and field observations indicate the vein should continue SSE on the strike and dip established by BC20-060 and BC20-061. The MMI gold anomaly manifests in the footwall rocks and not in late to post mineral hanging wall volcanic rocks, so the vein projection follows the east margin of the MMI anomaly. BC20-062 is currently being drilled 50m SSE of BC20-061 to continue offsetting the vein on the indicated strike and is penetrating weak, clay-hematite-carbonate veinlet alteration characteristic of the Burro Vein hanging wall. Road building is ongoing to continue offsetting the Burro Vein SSE in 50-100m increments.
Donald Penner, President and Director, comments: “We are very pleased to be advancing the drilling along the MMI gold anomaly within the projection of the Burro Gold Vein and are looking forward to the assay results of these latest drill holes.”
