SITKA EXPANDS RC GOLD PROJECT IN YUKON
VANCOUVER, CANADA – December 1, 2020: Sitka Gold Corp. (“Sitka” or the “Company”) (CSE:SIG) (FSE:1RF) is pleased to announce that it has staked an additional 130 quartz mining claims at its district-scale RC Gold Project (“RC Gold” or the “Project”) in Yukon.
The additional claims were staked to cover a newly identified, highly prospective area along the western boundary of the Project’s claim block. The Company recently announced diamond drilling results (see news release dated November 23, 2020) that included drill hole #DDRCCC20-002, which was in close proximity to its western claim boundary, and returned 100.8 metres of 0.82 g/t gold and 2.0 metres of 16.1 g/t gold (Figure 1). These newly staked claims are contiguous to the existing claim block and expand the Company’s district scale RC Gold Project land position to a total of approximately 376 square kilometres.
“Sitka’s inaugural diamond drilling program completed at RC Gold this summer has discovered a large, robust, intrusion-related gold system that appears to have the scale and grade necessary to host an economic gold deposit”, stated Cor Coe, Director and CEO of Sitka, “Further compilation of the historical and recently obtained geological data identified this newly acquired ground as a highly prospective target area that conforms to our modelling and greatly enhances our dominant land position within the Tombstone Gold Belt (Figure 2)”.
