StrikePoint Gold announcef that drilling has started on the Mahtin Project, located approximately 40km northwest of the town of Mayo in the central Yukon Territory.
Drilling is currently underway at the Mahtin North target, an area of copper-gold skarn mineralization. A total of eight holes are planned along a one kilometer line to test the extent of mineralization at depth.
In addition to drilling, the field crew is continuing to map along the Sprague Creek Stock contact to collect sulphide-bearing rock samples for assay from previously untested areas, covering a strike of 3.5km on a bearing of 070 degrees. Results of this work are pending.
Mapping and sampling focus will shortly switch to the May-Qu target on the south of the Mahtin property to prepare the area for the second phase of exploratory drilling in the coming weeks.
