Visionary Gold Corp. Ships First Core Samples from Initial 3,500 Metre Drill Program at Wolf Gold Project and Adds Second Drill Rig
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - September 16, 2021) - Visionary Gold Corp. (TSXV: VIZ) ("Visionary" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that drill core from the first hole of its initial 27 hole, 3,500 metre drill program at the Wolf Gold Project has been sent for analysis and that the Company has hired a second drill contractor to accelerate the program.
"We are excited to be the first company to collect core samples from the storied Lewiston Gold District in Wyoming," commented, Visionary Gold CEO, Wes Adams. "We are now awaiting assay results from the first hole. The addition of a second drill rig will allow for increased drilling production and, ultimately, faster return of assay results. In addition to accelerating the drill program we are continuing to develop new targets on our 50 square kilometre land package by way of geologic field work, including rock and soil geochemistry. We will continue to provide drilling and exploration updates as results are received and discoveries are confirmed."
The initial drill program was designed to test up to 1000m of a 2500m surface gold anomaly that is believed to be associated with the Wolf shear zone, where Visionary sampled 5.19 grams per tonne (g/t) over 10.25m including 39.19 g/t over 1m in a channel sample across the strike of the shear.
