The program is expected to consist of five core holes, approximately 1000m in total, and will offset encouraging intercepts of gold in its previously drilled reverse-circulation holes.

The project consists of 84 claims (~680 hectares) and is one of its 22 Nevada properties (~20,000 hectares) located along productive gold trends.

East Manhattan is located in Nevada’s Nye County at the eastern edge of the Manhattan Mining district, approximately 19km southeast of the giant low-sulfidation Round Mountain gold mine.

The first hole at East Manhattan is an offset approximately 61m down dip of two significant intervals contained in hole EM08010, an estimated true thicknesses of 11.25m of 2.868g/t Au at 91.4m depth followed by 11.25m of 0.805g/t Au at 118.9m depth.

The company said that other holes are planned to offset other previously drilled mineralized intercepts by similar distances down dip and along strike.
