Revival Gold Mobilizes Second Rig at Beartrack Gold Project in Idaho
After visiting the Revival site last week I was very impressed with the overall project and infrastructure at site. I got a full understanding of the strategy moving forward with both the Beartrack and Arnett Gold Projects. The news below updates us on the drilling at the Beartrack Project in which the Company has an 8,000 meter program underway.

… Here’s the news…
Toronto, ON – June 19, 2018 – Revival Gold Inc. (TSXV: RVG, OTCQB: RVLGF)(“Revival Gold” or the “Company”), a growth-focused gold exploration and development company, has mobilized a second drill rig at the Beartrack Gold Project (“Beartrack”) located in Lemhi County, Idaho and is pleased to provide the following exploration update.
Drilling at Beartrack resumed this season with one rig on May 22nd. The second rig arrived on June 9th. With the addition of the second rig, this year’s planned 8,000-meter core drill program is expected to be completed mid-way through the fourth quarter of 2018.
Drilling is designed to expand the recently announced maiden mineral resource at Beartrack (see Revival Gold press release dated May 29th, 2018) and to test underexplored areas along strike. Resource expansion will focus on the South and North Pit target areas (approximately six holes planned in each location). Additional drilling is planned in the Joss target area (approximately three holes planned) which is located approximately 700 meters south along strike from the South Pit. Additional targets have been identified between the South Pit and Joss and may be drilled depending on program results.
“Last year’s drill program validated historic drill data at Beartrack and allowed Revival Gold to announce a maiden indicated mineral resource of 33.4 million tonnes at 1.13 g/t gold containing 1,214,000 ounces of gold and a maiden inferred mineral resource of 16.9 million tonnes at 1.41 g/t gold containing 765,000 ounces of gold”, said Hugh Agro, President and CEO. “This year’s drill program is all about expanding this resource and testing new targets along strike”.
In addition to drilling at Beartrack, Revival Gold is currently in the process of permitting 52 drill pad locations at the neighbouring Arnett Project (“Arnett”). A total of 2,000 meters of core drilling are planned for Arnett later this year once the Company’s Plan of Operations has been approved by the United States Forest Service.
Drilling at Arnett will target near surface leachable material to supplement existing open-pit leachable resources at Beartrack. Drill targets have been identified based on historic exploration work and Revival Gold’s 2017 field mapping and selective rock sampling program. As previously released, approximately one-third of Revival Gold’s 2017 selective rock samples from across Arnett graded greater than 1 g/t gold (see Revival Gold press release dated November 13th, 2017).
