TORONTO, July 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Revival Gold Inc. (TSXV:RVG) (OTCQB:RVLGF) (“Revival Gold” or the “Company”), a growth-focused gold exploration and development company, has filed on SEDAR a technical report prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101”) on the Beartrack Gold Project (“Beartrack”) in Lemhi County, Idaho (the “Technical Report”). The Technical Report supports the disclosure made by the Company in its news release dated May 29, 2018 titled “Revival Gold Unveils 43-101 Gold Resource at the Beartrack Gold Project in Idaho, USA”. There are no material differences from the mineral resources contained in the Technical Report from those disclosed in the May 29, 2018 news release.
The Technical Report, titled “Mineral Resource Estimate, Beartrack Property, Lemhi County, Idaho, United States”, is dated July 12, 2018 and has an effective date of April 18, 2018. The Technical Report was prepared by Resource Modeling Inc. with Graham A. Karklin & Associates Inc. contributing to the Mineral Processing and Metallurgical Testing section.
- At a 0.61 g/t gold mill cut-off and 0.26 g/t cyanide soluble gold heap leach cut-off, the Beartrack Mineral Resource contains:
- A total Indicated Mineral Resource of 33.4 million tonnes at 1.13 g/t gold containing 1,214,000 ounces of gold; and,
- A total Inferred Mineral Resource of 16.9 million tonnes at 1.41 g/t gold containing 765,000 ounces of gold.
- Beartrack was previously operated as an open pit, heap leach operation exploiting leachable ore. The mine produced 609,000 ounces of gold before it was shut down in 2000 when the price of gold was below US$ 300/ounce.
- Significant infrastructure from the historic operation remains. For this Mineral Resource, Revival Gold has conceptualized an initial heap leach restart with a mill operation to follow.
- The Mineral Resource is defined by 458 core and reverse circulation drill holes totalling approximately 71,000 meters.
Two rigs are currently in operation on a planned 8,000-meter core drill program at Beartrack. The program is expected to be completed mid-way through the fourth quarter of 2018. Three holes totaling approximately 1,600 meters in the South Pit target area and one hole totalling approximately 420 meters in the North Pit target area have been completed to-date. Assay results from these first three holes at Beartrack are expected to be available in August 2018.
Revival Gold is also underway with a program of metallurgical testing being conducted by SGS Laboratories Inc. on six composite samples from Beartrack. Initial results are expected by the end of the third quarter of 2018.
At the Company’s Arnett Gold Project (“Arnett”) located next to Beartrack, as previously reported, Revival Gold is in the process of permitting 52 drill pad locations. A total of 2,000 meters of core drilling are planned at Arnett for later this year once Revival Gold’s Plan of Operations (drilling permit) has been approved by the United States Forest Service.
