1 True width is unknown at this time but is estimated to be approximately half of the drilled width. Further details tabled below.

 

The appraisal was initiated earlier this year in response to Revival Gold’s 2020 drilling results, the relogging of previously drilled core and fresh geological insights developed by the Company’s exploration team led by Vice President Exploration, Steve Priesmeyer, with input from consulting geoscientists, Mira Geosciences Ltd., and Technical Advisors, 2021 Bill Dennis Award Winner, Phil Walford and noted international explorationist, Laurie Curtis. Key findings are as follows:

 

  • Based on wide-spaced drilling, there appears to be a core of consistent high-grade sulphide gold mineralization that extends over one kilometer from the south end of the South Pit area through to the south end of the Joss area.
  • The high-grade mineralization is situated within the near-vertical Panther Creek Shear Zone. Intersections run from 4 – 9 g/t gold and are estimated to range between 1 – 5 meters in true width.
  • Mineralization at Joss has been tested over 300 meters vertically and extends to approximately 500 meters below the surface where it remains open at depth.
  • The core is enveloped within a larger lower-grade halo of gold mineralization, some of which has been previously analyzed and included in the bulk underground mineable component of the 2020 Mineral Resource at Beartrack-Arnett (see News Release dated November 17th, 2020).
  • Cross structures are thought to be important controls on mineralization at Beartrack (for example, in the Ward’s Gulch area where BT12-175D intersected 71 g/t gold over 9.8 meters) and such structures are evident at Joss. Intersection points with the PCSZ represent important drill targets.
  • The zone is open to the southTo the north, the mineralization continues into the South Pit area, which hosts additional open pit and bulk underground mineable Mineral Resources.

 

“Efforts by Revival Gold’s exploration team have resulted in a game-changing development at Beartrack-Arnett. Our previous focus on bulk tonnage mineralization has been transformed with an increased understanding of high-grade gold mineralization on the project. This development opens the possibility for the project hosting a potentially large, high-grade ore body with additional bulk underground mining potential at Joss and elsewhere, as the entire five-kilometer strike length of mineralization along the Panther Creek Shear Zone is open at depth. Revival Gold recently received approval for an additional Plan of Operations to drill in the Joss-Rabbit target area and we will resume drilling there as a priority this spring,” commented President & CEO, Hugh Agro.

High-Grade Drill Intersections

 

Details for select high-grade drill intersections for the fourteen core holes drilled to-date over approximately 1 kilometer of strike from the south end of the South Pit area through to the south end of the Joss area are presented in the table below:

1 True width is unknown at this time but is estimated to be approximately half of the drilled width. Numbers may not add up due to rounding.
2 Where applicable, grades at Beartrack-Arnett are capped at 8.0 g/t Au using the methodology described in the Technical Report on the Beartrack-Arnett Gold Project, Lemhi County, Idaho, USA dated December 17th, 2020.

 

Figures 1 and 2 below provide plan and sectional views of the new high-grade underground target at Beartrack-Arnett in the Joss area describing the geological setting, collar locations and intercepts for all fourteen drill holes presented in the summary table above.

 

Permitting and Drilling Plans

 

Revival Gold recently received approval from the U.S. Forest Service for a new Plan of Operations which will expand the Company’s drilling opportunities in the Joss-Rabbit corridor. The new Plan will provide for an additional 21 drill pad locations and greater flexibility for resource definition.

 

Future drilling between the south end of the South Pit through Joss will focus on improving confidence in the scale and continuity of mineralization in this area (both horizontally and vertically). Details with respect to the 2021 drilling program will be available in March with drilling expected to resume this spring.
