West Oak Gold Begins Field Work at Hedge Hog Gold Project Near Barkerville B.C.

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - August 17, 2021) - West Oak Gold Corp. (CSE: WO) ("West Oak") is pleased to announce that it has begun field work at the Hedge Hog gold project, located 15 km north of the Barkerville gold camp in British Columbia.

The Phase 1 work programme has been designed to explore for structurally hosted gold at the Golden Sky target in the north part of the Hedge Hog property. A grab sample taken by Eastfield Resource Corp. from an exposure in a road cut in 2013 returned 1.51 g/t gold, 0.48% lead, 1203 ppm arsenic and 1313 ppm antimony (sample 2590864). A tightly spaced soil grid has revealed gold values to 206 ppb and arsenic values to 113 ppm. Little work has been conducted here since 2013.

Soil sampling is now underway at Golden Sky to expand the current soils grid. This will be followed by mechanical trenching to better expose the known mineralization, search for extensions along strike as well as testing anomalous soil locations.
