AurCrest Gold announces commencement of the initial field sampling at high-priority exploration targets at Ranger Lake Gold Property
November 16, 2020
Toronto, Ontario, November 16, 2020 - AurCrest Gold Inc. (the “Company” or “AurCrest”) (TSX-V: AGO) is pleased to announce the commencement of a soil sampling program at the Company’s Ranger Lake Gold Property, intended to test targets identified through recent data acquisition. The Ranger Lake Gold Property consists of 60 single cell claims covering approximately 1,220 hectares east of Balmertown ON, held 100% by the Company.
The Company has chosen to utilize Activation Laboratories Ltd. (“ActLabs”) Spatiotemporal Geochemical Hydrocarbons (“SGH”) exploration geochemistry analytical services to provide further delineation of gold targets previously identified by the proprietary CARDS AI data acquired from Windfall Geotek Inc. (“Windfall”) (TSX-V: WIN), as announced by the Company on September 2, 2020. The SGH soil sampling and analysis will build further guidance for a drill program anticipated for Winter 2021.
The SGH process is capable of analyzing soil, rock and core (after milling), peat, vegetation, fully submerged lake sediments and even snow from a very wide variety of climates. Furthermore, an SGH survey is unique in geochemistry as it can use a mixture of different sample types in the same survey, with no requirement for data leveling for samples taken in swampy conditions (i.e. Humus samples) to samples of till or soil from drier areas.
The CARDS AI data has been developed by Windfall’s multidisciplinary team that includes professionals in geophysics, geology, Artificial Intelligence, and mathematics. The data combines available public and private datasets including geophysical, drill hole and surface data, and the algorithms designed and employed by Windfall are calculated to highlight areas of interest that have the potential to be geologically similar to other gold deposits and mineralization. The CARDS AI data indicates that the Company’s Ranger Lake Gold Property encompasses several high priority gold targets.
