More Positive Drilling Results From TriStar Gold’s Castelo de Sonhos






TriStar Gold Inc. (TSX-V:TSG) is pleased to report continued successful assay results from the recently completed 42-hole drilling program at the Castelo de Sonhos project. This includes 3m @ 1.2 g/t from surface, 9m @ 1.25 g/t from 22m downhole and 6m @ 1.1 g/t from 54m downhole in RC-18-315 at Esperança South and 6m @ 0.82 g/t in RC-18-318 at Esperança East, a target not included in previous resource estimates (true widths are approximately 90% of the intersection lengths). Results thus far are very encouraging given TriStar’s 2018 drilling goal to target the gaps in existing drilling and extensions beyond the current resource footprint.



Of the six mineralized conglomerate targets at CDS (shown in Figure 1):


  • In Esperança East, the largest of the under-explored targets, 2018 drilling has shown reefs with higher grades and thicknesses than previously believed and has also shown that mineralization extends further to the south.
  • Esperança South continues to provide positive assay results. These new holes suggest that the well-mineralized reefs may thicken as they extend to the north.
  • The high priority targets are Esperança South, Central and East, which have a combined strike length of 12km. Of which 7km hosts the current resource estimate and the remaining 5km lack sufficient drilling to support resource estimation. Esperança East is a large portion of this 5km of untested reef outcrop with coincident gold-in-soil geochemistry.
  • The other targets are the New Discovery Zone, the Upper Conglomerate Zone, (recent discoveries) and Esperança West, which remain as further upside potential and will not be drilled until after the PEA is published.



Mr. Nick Appleyard, President and CEO, commented: “It’s exciting to see our drilling at Esperança South and East returning such good results.  We’ve got especially good news from this year’s drilling in Esperança East. The grades and thicknesses of the reefs in that relatively untested part of the deposit are coming in higher than the earliest drill holes suggested and very much in line with the results from the mineral resource definition drilling in the South and Center. We have results from 15 holes still outstanding and we anticipate having these results available by mid-July.”






Since the beginning of the 2018 drill program, a total of 34 reverse circulation (“RC”) holes for 3,972m and 8 core holes for 960m have been completed.  Assays have recently been received for 4 complete holes (See Figure 1, all drilled vertically), the results are very promising. The two holes at Esperança South contained multiple intersections of anticipated grades and thicknesses.  One hole at Esperança East had no significant intersections and the other contained multiple intersections of anticipated grades and thicknesses. The results are generally consistent with expectations and continue to add to our confidence and knowledge base at CDS.



Detailed summaries of drill hole locations and significant intervals have been added to the CDS project page of the company website here (or visit along with a complete list of all significant intervals for the project.
