UrbanGold Undertakes Ground Geophysics in Preparation for Drilling in Troilus, Baie James and Completes Acquisition of Mineral Claims
Ottawa, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - August 29, 2019) - UrbanGold Minerals Inc. (TSXV: UGM) ("UrbanGold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the start of ground geophysical surveys on its recently acquired Troilus group of properties, in the James Bay region, Quebec.
The program follows-up on recently identified outcrops of interest containing disseminated sulphides. The program will take two weeks to complete and is designed to generate additional drill targets for an upcoming drill program consisting of a minimum of 3,000 metres (see August 6, 2019 news release).
An induced polarisation survey covering several grids totalling 47 kms will be completed over several prospective sectors. The survey is configured to penetrate to depths of 120 metres. A ground magnetic survey is also to be completed over the same grids, which will help in identifying key underlying structures and lithologies and aide in planning drill holes. The surveys are designed to identify potential gold bearing structures which are not visible at surface given the scarcity of outcrops in the areas of interest.
Mathieu Stephens, President and CEO, commented: "We are very pleased to announce that work is progressing well on the property and that drilling will soon be underway. These deep penetrating geophysical surveys will assist in target selection for drilling by correlating mineralization observed at surface with potential extension at depth. We will be ready to extend the drill program if deemed necessary."
The Company also announces that further to its news release dated July 18, 2019, it has completed the acquisition of seven claims (four located in the Troilus area and three at the Mercier Rare Earth property) from a local prospector, in consideration of 140,000 common shares of the Company. The common shares of the Company issued to the local prospector are subject to a four month hold period from the date of issuance.
