VANCOUVER, CANADA – May 8th, 2018: Sitka Gold Corp. (CSE: SIG) (the “Company” or “Sitka”) is pleased to announce that it has received approval from the Bureau of Land Management (“BLM) to drill its Alpha Gold Property (“Alpha Gold” or the “Property”) in Nevada. Additional information on the Company’s Alpha Gold Property is available on the Company’s website or by viewing its news release dated February 13th, 2018.
About Alpha Gold The Property is comprised of a claim block of 50 lode claims covering an area of approximately 1000 acres (405 ha). Sitka acquired the Property from Objective Exploration LLC who staked the Property after the location was recognized as the intersection of the regional-scale Pine Valley anticline with northeasterly fold trends exposed in the Roberts Mountains. Of primary importance at the Alpha Gold location is that the rocks have been down-dropped significantly by late extensional faulting. Prior to extension, and during the critical 36 - 42 Ma Carlin-type mineralization event, the fold crest at Alpha Gold would have been a regional highpoint among nearby mountain ranges. This is an ideal scenario for producing and preserving a Carlin-type gold deposit, and is exactly what happened at the Pipeline (20 Moz), Cortez Hills (15 Moz), and Goldrush (15 Moz) deposits in the Cortez district.
Current Exploration Activities Drilling has recently commenced on the Company’s Adobe Gold Property located 40 kilometres north of Elko, Nevada. The Company is targeting Carlin-type gold mineralization in the Adobe Range in three separate target areas on the Property. Sitka plans to drill up to 3000 metres in 6 holes with a reverse circulation drill rig.
