About Burin Gold Corp.
Burin Gold is a newly listed public company on the TSX Venture Exchange. The Company’s principal asset is a 159 km2 epithermal gold exploration property on the Burin Peninsula, Newfoundland. The Company’s property on the Burin Peninsula contains the Hickey’s Pond gold prospect as well as numerous other historical high-sulphidation epithermal gold showings that have yet to be drill tested. The Company has been active in Newfoundland since 2018 (operating as a private company under its former name of Bonavista Resources Corp.) and has significantly advanced its Burin property through several exploration programs, including a 1,000 metre diamond drill program at the Hickey’s Pond prospect in late 2020. This initial drill program at Hickey’s Pond intersected a best result of 10.8 m of 4.43 g/t Au at shallow depth (see Bonavista Resources Corp. news release of Feb 24, 2021). With the successful completion of its IPO, the Company is well-positioned to commence a significant diamond drilling campaign at the Hickey’s Pond prospect, planned to start Q1/2022.
