Selena Project

Selena is located in White Pine County, Nevada (NV), approximately 64 kilometers (km) north of the town of Ely, NV and 12 km southeast of the Kinross Gold owned and operated Bald Mountain Mine. The 100% owned project comprises 26 km² of highly prospective ground that has seen limited exploration activity over the past twenty years. The team has identified the Chinchilla and Juniper target areas to be tested in 2020 with positive Phase I trench and drilling results at the Chinchilla target suggesting the potential to discover oxide gold-silver mineralization (Carlin-Type) under shallow cover (Figure 2.0). Phase II drilling consisting of 1,000 meters commenced in August 2020 and will focus on testing both targets at mineralized fault intersections within favourable Pilot and Guilmette formation host rocks. See the August 12, 2020 news release for further details.

Carlin-East Project

Carlin-East is a Carlin-Type gold exploration project located within Nevada's prolific Carlin Trend (Figure 3.0) with Ridgeline holding the option to earn a 100% interest in the project. The property straddles the Eureka and Elko counties in Nevada and is comprised of 422 contiguous federal lode claims and fee lands totaling 39km² of mineral rights. Historic and currently producing mines nearby include the Goldstrike, Leeville, Carlin and Gold Quarry operations, which comprise the Nevada Gold Mines owned and operated Carlin/Goldstrike Complex. Ridgeline's 2019 drill program confirmed its conceptual geologic model at the project by intersecting anomalously altered Lower Plate Rodeo Creek formation at 790 vertical meters. The proposed October 2020 drilling campaign, consisting of 1,000 m, will follow up on the success of the 2019 program by targeting a Leeville deposit analogue within the highly prospective Crash Zone target area.

Swift Project

Swift is a Carlin-Type gold exploration project located on the Cortez District of the Battle Mountain - Eureka Trend (Figure 4.0) in Nevada with Ridgeline holding the option to earn a 100% interest in the project. The Property is immediately adjacent to the historic Elder Creek gold mine as well as directly on trend of The Pipeline, Cortez Hills and Goldrush deposits which comprise the Nevada Gold Mines owned and operated Cortez Complex. Throughout 2019 and H1 2020, Ridgeline completed property-wide geophysics, surface soil sampling and field mapping and will target the highly prospective Fallen City and Goat targets in 2020 with a 3,500 m RC drill program expected to start in September 2020.
