Calgary, Canada May 7, 2021 – Crestview Exploration Inc. (CSE: CRS, Frankfurt: CE7) (“Crestview” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce the commencement of the phase 1 drilling at the Cimarron gold prospect (“Cimarron” or the “Property”; see Map 1 below).
The company broke ground on the first of nine planned drill holes for the phase 1 program at Cimarron on Thursday, May 6, 2021. As a reminder to the reader, this phase 1 drill program will be testing a historic resource in the area of the historic San Antonio mine (see Map 2 below). The targeted areas for phase 1 drilling received significant attention in the 1980’s, with an approximately 50,000-ounce shallow oxide gold resource outlined but never extracted (reference is to an internal mining report by Peter Hahn to Budge Mining Ltd. dated February 17, 1987. This resource should be considered as “historic” and not compliant with NI 43-101 standards.). The phase 1 drill program is focused on validating and expanding on the historic resource by drilling a selection of twin holes to greater depths than the former operators.
“I am happy to report a smooth start and excited about this first program at Cimarron. The historic assay data in the area we are drilling is very encouraging, and I anticipate similar results. We will also be drilling the property to greater depths than the historic drilling, and I am hopeful that we can extend the resource at depth.” stated Justin Lowe, Crestview’s VP of Exploration.
Please see the following link to a short video of the Cimarron property, including access roads and drill sites.
Additional upcoming activity planned at the Cimarron gold prospect includes mapping, geophysics, and surface sampling at both the core claim area and the recently staked expansion.
