StrikePoint Begins Drilling on the Cuprite Gold Project, Walker Lane Nevada






StrikePoint Gold Inc. (TSX-V:SKP) (OTCQB:STKXF) is pleased to announce that is has commenced drilling on the 44 square kilometer Cuprite Gold Project located in the Walker Lane Trend of Nevada approximately 75km north of AngloGold’s multimillion ounce Silicon and Merlin gold discoveries.

The Company anticipates a 7-10 hole program totaling approximately 5,000 meters drilling using reverse circulation methods.  Drilling will be completed by Envirotech Drilling of Winnemucca, Nevada.


Michael G. Allen, President and CEO of StrikePoint said, “We are very excited to begin drilling on this high-quality exploration target located just off Highway 95 in Nevada.  The surface similarities to AngloGold’s new Silicon and Merlin discoveries make the Cuprite Gold Project a compelling drill target.  Silicon and Merlin are new blind discoveries totaling over 13 million ounces of gold and prove that there are still Tier 1 gold discoveries to be made in Nevada, particularly in the Walker Lane Trend.”
