Revival Gold Intersects 10.1 g/t Gold Over 11.4 Meters Within 3.5 g/t Gold Over 115.4 Meters at Beartrack-Arnett






Revival Gold Inc. (TSX-V: RVG) (OTCQX: RVLGF) is pleased to announce further results from the Company’s 2022 drilling program at the Beartrack-Arnett Gold Project located in Idaho, USA.



  • BT22-242D intersected 3.49 g/t gold over 115.4 meters including 10.12 g/t gold over 11.4 meters at Joss1. This hole was drilled approximately 150 meters deeper than BT21-240D, which intersected 4.34 g/t gold over 110.6 meters drilled width, including 12 g/t gold over 13.7 meters, and 8.8 g/t gold over 11.8 meters (see Revival Gold press release dated December 2nd, 2021), further emphasizing the depth potential and scope of mineralization at Beartrack-Arnett;
  • A total of three core holes targeting the depth extension of mineralization at Beartrack-Arnett have been completed in the 2022 program; two in the Joss high-grade target area (BT22-241D, which was released on September 12th, 2022, and BT22-242D) and one in the South Pit area (BT22-243D, discussed below); a fourth core hole is underway at Joss;
  • BT22-243D has been completed at the south end of the South Pit. This hole is intended to extend the trend of higher-grade mineralization at Joss north to the South Pit and intersected stockwork mineralization as well as siliceous breccia within the target zone. Assay results are pending;
  • In addition to the drilling at Joss, a second core rig is drilling infill and expansion drill holes in the Haidee oxide target area at Beartrack-Arnett; the first hole, AC22-085D, has been completed with sampling underway; and,
  • About 2,900 meters of this year’s planned 5,000-meter core drilling program have been completed at Beartrack-Arnett since the start of drilling in June;

    1 Drilled width; true widths are estimated to be 30% to 60% of drilled width with some veinlets thought to be subparallel to the core axis. The effect of these veinlets on the representative grade of mineralization is currently unknown.


“We’ve hit another long intercept of high-grade at Joss,” said Hugh Agro, President & CEO. “Importantly, hole 242D is 150 meters deeper than previous drilling and expands an already impressive body of mineralization. The Joss zone currently extends for more than one kilometer in strike and over an average vertical extent of about 500 meters with the average true width of the mineralized zone estimated to be 10-30 meters thick. Further results from Joss are expected before year end,” added Agro.




Detailed results for drill hole BT22-242D released today are presented in the table below:

1 True width is estimated to be approximately 30% to 60% of drilled width, with some veinlets subparallel to the core axis. The effect of these veinlets on the representative grade of mineralization is currently unknown. Numbers may not add up due to rounding.
2 The interval 591.0 m to 591.7 m had 0% recovery and was included in the interval calculation as 0.7 m at 0 g/t Au.

QA/QC Program


Quality Assurance/Quality Control consists of the regular insertion of certified reference materials, duplicate samples, and blanks into the sample stream. Check samples are submitted to an umpire laboratory at the end of the drilling program. Sample results are analyzed immediately upon receipt and all discrepancies are investigated. Samples are submitted to the ALS Geochemistry sample preparation facility in Twin Falls, Idaho. Gold analyses are performed at the ALS Geochemistry laboratory in Reno, Nevada or Vancouver, British Columbia, and multi-element geochemical analyses are completed at the ALS Minerals laboratory in Vancouver, British Columbia. ALS Minerals is an ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accredited lab.


Gold assays are determined on samples consisting of half drill core by fire assay and AAS on a 30-gram nominal sample weight (Au-AA23) for Beartrack, and Fire Assay and AAS on a 50-gram nominal sample weight (Au-AA24) for Arnett. For shallow holes, targeting leachable mineralization, gold content is also determined by cyanide leach with an AAS finish on a nominal 30-gram sample weight (Au-AA13). Multi element geochemical analyses are completed on selected drill holes using the ME-MS 61M method.
