Shorty Creek Copper-Gold Project Drilling Scheduled

VANCOUVER - Freegold Ventures Limited reported that drilling on its Shorty Creek copper gold project will commence in early July. Preparations are currently underway for a 2,500 meter drill program which is fully funded under the Shorty Creek Option Agreement with a wholly owned subsidiary of South32 Limited.

Shorty Creek lies approximately 125 road km northwest of Fairbanks, Alaska and 4 kms to the south of the abandoned mining town of Livengood and the all-weather paved Elliott Highway. Data review suggests the project has the potential to host a series of copper-gold porphyry deposits. Exploration since 2014 has included ground geophysics, geochemical surveys, and diamond drilling.
