Calgary, Canada March 23, 2021 – Crestview Exploration Inc. (CSE: CRS, Frankfurt: CE7) (“Crestview” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce AK Drilling Inc. will conduct phase 1 drilling at the recently acquired Cimarron gold prospect (“Cimarron” or the “Property”). For details of the Cimarron property acquisition and/or for a more detailed description of the Cimarron gold prospect, the reader is referred to the news release titled “Crestview Exploration Inc. Acquires a Lease with Option to Purchase on the Cimarron Gold Prospect in Nye County – Nevada” and dated February 24, 2021.
The Cimarron gold prospect is located in Nye County, Nevada approximately 30 kilometers North of the mining town Tonopah, Nevada (see Map 1 below).
The prospect was acquired along with data for approximately 190 holes totaling 54,000’ of drilling conducted in the 1980’s, and a historic resource of greater than 50,000 ounces of gold (resource reference is to an internal mining report by Peter Hahn to Budge Mining Ltd. dated February 17, 1987). Because this historical data was never made 43-101 compliant, this phase 1 drilling will focus on twinning between 8 and 10 holes spread throughout the main resource area for a total of approximately 5,000’ (see Map 2 below).
The holes to be twinned were selected based on historical assay data and depth of mineralization. The two main objectives of this phase 1 drill program are:
- To validate historical data. We will begin this process by twinning a spread of the historic RC drill holes in the resource area with HQ core drill holes. Core holes are generally considered more reliable, and less subject to down-hole contamination.
- To begin to test the resource expansion potential at depth by pushing the twinned holes to greater depths than the original. The historical drilling was very shallow, with an average depth of less than 200’, and many of the holes were terminated in economic grade.
Justin Lowe, VP Exploration commented “we are very excited for this upcoming drill program at Cimarron. We will be twinning some of the best historical drill holes, but to greater depths than the originals. We hope to both confirm and expand on the historic 50,000-ounce gold resource, and this program is designed to make considerable headway on both.”
Crestview plans to begin the phase 1 drill program at the Cimmaron gold prospect in April, 2021.
