Diamond Drill Program At The Palmetto Gold Project

VANCOUVER - Smooth Rock Ventures Corp. announced that the upcoming diamond drill program at the Palmetto Gold project is scheduled to begin. The drill program originally scheduled to begin was delayed due to COVID-19 related issues and restrictions. Smooth Rock owns a 100% undivided interest in the Palmetto Project (not subject to any outstanding royalties), consisting of 116 unpatented mining claims totaling 2217 acres located in Esmeralda County, Nevada, within the southern portion of the Walker Lane gold trend, easily accessible on a year-round basis.

In 2020, Smooth Rock's field crews completed a detailed ground land survey of the claim blocks and located most of the historical drill holes. Smooth Rock's geologists completed an extensive review of all available historical technical data including, historical drill logs and reports. The results from this detailed technical data review, the ground survey and 3D modeling data have all been compiled together. This compilation was essential, in preparation for the upcoming diamond drill program, in order to determine drill collar locations, and construct drill pads and access roads.

The diamond drill program is designed to expand the current resource by drilling the mineralized zones laterally and drilling at depth below the present mineralization, targeting the high-grade feeder chutes, as well as exploring other areas of the project outside of the known resource area.
