2022 Exploration Program Highlights Include:
- Further details on White Gold Corp’s 2020 exploration program can be found in the Company’s press release at https://whitegoldcorp.ca/news/releases/index.php?content_id=309.
- 7,500m of drilling, including 5,000m of diamond drilling, 1,000m of reverse circulation (RC) drilling and 1,500m of rotary air blast (RAB) drilling.
- Drilling at the Betty Ford target will test for extensions of the near surface breccia-hosted high grade gold zone, where 2021 maiden diamond drilling intersected 3.46 g/t Au over 50.0m in hole BETFD21D003 and 1.17 g/t Au over 48.0m in hole BETFD21D001
- Maiden diamond drilling at the Mascot target, 5km east of the Betty Ford discovery to test mineralized zones identified in historical RC drilling which included 2.62 g/t Au over 41.1m in hole BETR12-022 at the Page zone, 29.75 g/t Au over 3.10m in BETR12-012 and 2.19 g/t Au over 10.7m in BETR12-014 at the Boop zone, and 1.48 g/t Au over 21.3m in BETR12-007 at the Davis zone.
- Additional prospective targets at the Betty property will be tested with RC and RAB drilling.
- Diamond drilling on the White Gold property will be focused on the Ryan’s Surprise and Ulli’s Ridge target area. Drilling will be carried out to test the gap area between Ryan’s Surprise and Ulli’s Ridge to determine if they are part of the same mineralized zone and to further test the high-grade gold discovery at Ulli’s Ridge where 2021 maiden diamond drilling intersected 6.94 g/t Au over 19.5 m in hole WHTULR21D004.
- Focused prospecting will be carried out along the 6.5 km long NNW gold and arsenic soil geochemical trend (Ryan’s Trend) located 2km west of Golden Saddle, with plans to test high priority anomalies with RAB drilling.
- A regional early-stage exploration program based on the Company’s proven methodologies will include 10 properties with the goal of identifying and defining new targets.
Further details on the 2022 drilling and other exploration programs will be announced in the coming weeks and months in respect of the different components of the programs.
- A district scale map outlining the Company’s planned 2022 exploration work areas and other images on key targets can be found at http://whitegoldcorp.ca/investors/exploration-highlights
