Positive Drill Permit Decision For Caldera Gold Property, Nevada
VANCOUVER - Discovery Harbour Resources Corp. reported that the United States Forest Service (USFS) has concluded its review of the drill permit application with a positive decision for the epithermal gold Caldera property in Nevada. The positive USFS Decision Memo provides approval of the Company's Plan of Operations for Discovery Harbour to undertake a drill program on up to 10 drill targets this summer. The Company has engaged a drill contractor and is finalizing all necessary arrangements. In connection with the drill permit, the Company is making arrangements to post a $49,200 bond, a standard condition for a drill permit of this type. The Company expects to confirm all necessary logistics and contractors in order to begin drilling in August.
Mark Fields, President and CEO, said, “We are fully funded to drill test a series of the low sulphidation epithermal gold targets at depths substantially deeper than any historical drilling at Caldera. I would like to thank our shareholders for their patience as we worked our way towards this drill program. It is an exciting time with both the Caldera and Fortuity 89 properties advancing. We can now confirm our drill plans for Caldera, and Newcrest is rapidly advancing activity on the Fortuity 89 property through their evaluation and target identification for a drill program. The properties are only a few kilometers apart with similar geology and gold deposition models."
