Scorpio Gold has unveiled results from exploration drilling at the Northwest Drinkwater and Chieftan targets at its 70% owned Mineral Ridge project, located in Nevada.

The Northwest Drinkwater and Chieftan targets are located immediately northwest and 500 meters west-northwest, respectively, of the Drinkwater pit. Both target areas lie outside of currently defined resources for the Mineral Ridge project.

First pass drilling at Chieftan returned significant results in 10 of 12 holes drilled. Significant results were also returned from three holes drilled at the Northwest Drinkwater target, where previous drilling outlined a mineralized trend that extends approximately 300 meters northwest of the Drinkwater deposit.

Scorpio Gold’s management considers the results from drilling on both targets to be encouraging. No follow-up drilling is planned on either target at this time but may be considered at a future date.

All holes presented were completed by reverse circulation drilling with the exception of 7 core holes MR14995, MR141031, 33 and 34, MR14989, 90 and MR141011.

True width is estimated at 80-100% of downhole width. Analytical results were performed by American Assay Laboratory Inc. in Sparks, Nevada, an ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accredited facility. External check assays to verify lab accuracy are routinely completed by ALS Chemex, an ISO 9001:2000 certified and ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accredited facility.
