28 October 2019
Blue Star Gold Corp. is pleased to report the second set of analytical and assay results for its 2019 drill program on the Company’s Hood River concessions in western Nunavut. The exploration work focused on the North Fold Nose (the “NFN”) gold zone and consisted of eleven completed holes for approximately 1,540 meters (“m”) of core. A prospecting and sampling program ran in parallel with the drilling resulted in 698 samples being sent for analyses of which the Company has received results for approximately ¾ of the samples submitted.
Stephen Wilkinson, the Company’s CEO and President commented, “Our 2019 diamond drilling of the Hood River concessions’ NFN gold zone is meeting our best expectations by confirming continuation of the surface gold showings both along strike and to depth. We believe that the NFN could develop into a noteworthy gold and silver resource and reward our stakeholders by delivering valuable mining asset.”
The second report on the 2019 Diamond Drill Program comprises the results of three holes. Drill holes HR-19- 006 and HR-19-007 were collared from the same setup and were drilled to test the depth extension of the mineralized zone identified in HR-19-004 and -005 (6.93 g/t Au over 3m and 5.32 g/t over 2m, respectively) reported in the Company’s October 9, 2019 news release. Significant gold assays were returned with HR-19-006 averaging 8.47 g/t Au over 2m from 152m to 154m (includes 1m of 12.70 g/t Au) and HR-19-007 returning 6.84 g/t Au over 4m from 139m to 143m (includes 10.95 g/t Au over 1m and 13.25 g/t Au over 1m). Drill hole HR-19-008 was collared east and north of holes -006 and -007 and was drilled to test the strike and depth extension of the NFN gold zone. The hole successfully intersected the target zone and preliminary results were received from this hole returned 2.96 g/t from 86m to 91m (includes 5.86g/t over 1 metre).
