Ridgeline Minerals Corp. (TSX-V: RDG) (OTCQB: RDGMF) (FSE: 0GC0) is pleased to announce all remaining assay results from the Company’s Phase IV drill program at the Selena oxide silver-gold project, Nevada. Highlights include the discovery of a new mineralized horizon in the Chainman Shale returning up to 3.0 meters grading 59.8 grams per tonne of silver in hole SE21-027. The Chainman Shale is the host rock to multiple open-pit gold and silver deposits throughout the south Carlin Trend. The remaining ten holes from the fourteen-hole, 3,445m program focused on wide-spaced step-out drilling (average step-out of approximately 220m) across two priority target areas:
Chad Peters, Ridgeline’s President & CEO commented, “Our Phase IV program further supports our interpretation that mineralization at Selena is genetically related to mineralization at the Butte Valley porphyry. Drilling to the west towards the Butte Valley porphyry returned narrow yet relatively high-grade intercepts of Ag-Au-Pb-Zn in SE21-027, which includes our first ever intercept in the Chainman Shale, a prospective new target horizon for future drill programs. Results at the Sonic target to the north were shallow but lower grade, which suggests that the system is weakening to the northeast away from the porphyry system. Future exploration programs will focus on the roughly 3km of untested Ag-Au-Pb-Zn strike potential between the Butte Valley porphyry and the known high-grade mineralization that makes up the core of the Selena deposit.”

Selena Silver-Gold Project
Selena is located in White Pine County, Nevada, approximately 64 km north of the town of Ely, NV, and 12 km southeast of the Kinross owned and operated Bald Mountain Gold Mine. The 100% owned property is comprised of 35 square kilometers of highly prospective exploration ground, which has seen limited (View the Selena VRIFY Deck Here) exploration activity over the past twenty years prior to being acquired by Ridgeline in 2019.
All samples are submitted to Paragon Geochemical Assay Laboratories (PAL) of Sparks, NV, which is a certified and accredited laboratory, independent of the Company. Samples are run through standard prep methods and analysed using AU-OES30 (Au; 30g fire assay AQR digest) and 34MA-OESm (35 element Suite; 0.5g 4-acid digestion/ICP-MS; + 10ppb Hg) methods. PAL also undertakes its own internal coarse and pulp duplicate analysis to ensure proper sample preparation and equipment calibration. Ridgeline’s QA/QC program includes regular insertion of CRM standards, duplicates, and blanks into the sample stream with a stringent review of all results completed by the Company’s QP, Michael T. Harp, Vice President, Exploration.
Technical information contained in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Michael T. Harp, CPG. the Company’s Vice President, Exploration, who is Ridgeline’s qualified person under National Instrument 43-101 and responsible for technical matters of this release.
