Golden Summit Drilling Update
A Phase 1 – 10,000 metre drill program (approximately 15-20 holes) is currently in progress and is presently on hole GSDL20-05. Hole GSDL20-02, located 150 metres to the east of GSDL20-01 was completed as planned. Holes GSDL 20-03 and GSDL 20-04 were drilled 50 metres east and west of GSDL 20-01 respectively. Drilling is now focusing on systematically testing the areas to the north, west and east of the initial 2020 drilling in a series of step out holes. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic there continues to be significant delays at the preparatory facility. No assays have been received by Freegold and are not expected to be received before mid to late August.
Planning is underway for the addition of a second rig at the end of August. Drilling can be undertaken year-round at Golden Summit. Freegold may adjust its exploration program plans as it continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation and in the interim has implemented extensive safety protocols designed to assist minimizing the spread of COVID-19 and to protect its contractors, employees and community.
