Sabina Gold & Silver reports 2019 drilling has commenced at the Back River Gold Project
11 April 2019
Sabina Gold & Silver Corp is pleased to announce that the Goose Site has been successfully opened and crews are drilling at the Goose Property on its 100%-owned Back River gold project (“Back River” or the “Project”) in Nunavut, Canada.
Drilling has commenced on an approximate 8,000 meter spring drill program at the Goose Property. Work will focus on key areas of resource optimization in high grade zones at Llama and Umwelt underground and continued scoping of the newly discovered Nuvuyak zone (see figure 1 in the full release).
“In 2018 we continued to be successful in demonstrating the potential for new discovery and possible high impact additions to future mine reserves at the Goose project,” stated Bruce McLeod, President and CEO. “Early indications point to the strong possibility of a significant new resource at Nuvuyak while drilling at the Llama extension zone shows the potential to greatly expand the concept of a future Llama underground which is not currently included in our initial development plan. It is our belief that we can continue to demonstrate the potential for future mine reserve growth by aggressively exploring along our better-known gold trends as well as the newly emerging gold trends we have been uncovering. We believe that the Goose Property presents considerable opportunity to become a very productive northern gold mine. The Goose Property makes up 8km of the 80km Back River District, 100% owned by Sabina.”
