Second Drill Added At The Golden Corridor
VANCOUVER - Prosper Gold Corp. has added a second drill and increased the 2021 Phase 1 diamond drilling program to 15,000 meters at the Golden Sidewalk Project. Drilling will continue to focus on the newly identified Golden Corridor target area. “Prosper has a strong cash position and is fully funded to increase the Phase 1 drill program,” said, Peter Bernier, CEO. “We are excited to have Laframboise Drilling Inc. on site with 2 rigs. They are the most capable drillers I have come across in my 40 years in the business.”
154 till samples have been collected in 2021 along 11 kilometers of the regional unconformity – a crustal-scale fault that has been the focus of the Company’s exploration strategy to date. Infill till sampling following 200 meter by 200 meter grid spacing to the east and west of the Golden Corridor is ongoing. Samples have been shipped for processing.
The Golden Sidewalk is a district-scale gold exploration project covering over 160 square kilometers of contiguous mineral claims and mining leases in the western Birch-Uchi Greenstone Belt, approximately 60 km east of Red Lake, Ontario. The vehicle-accessible project straddles 12 kilometers of the Balmer Assemblage – Narrow Lake Assemblage unconformity, a regional-scale feature that has been the Red Lake exploration guide, but which has seen limited exploration in the project area. The recently identified “Golden Corridor” lies immediately north of the unconformity in the western portion of the property and is characterized as a highly prospective, greater than 5 kilometer trend of coincident favorable magnetic and resistivity lineaments supported by highly anomalous gold-in-till samples covering 3.3 by 0.5 kilometers.
