Toronto, Ontario – January 7, 2021 – Warrior Gold Inc. (TSX-V - WAR) (“Warrior Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Winter 2021 diamond drill program comprising 3,000 metres in 13 holes has commenced on the Company’s 100%-owned Goodfish-Kirana Property. The drill program will test downdip and along-strike-extension targets at the ‘A’ and ‘C’ Zones as well as a structural/geophysics-indicated target 500 m east of the ‘A’ Zone.
Danièle Spethmann, President & CEO, stated, “We are excited to get our winter drill program under way as a follow-up program to our successful 2020 summer drill campaign which intersected anomalous and high-grade gold in eight of nine drill holes, including one of the highest-grade intervals drilled by Warrior Gold that intersected 2.65 g/t Au over 22.3 m, including 6.70 g/t Au over 7.4 m within 1.22 g/t Au over 74 m. The Warrior Gold team has advanced the geological model identifying areas with potential to expand the known mineralization and will also test a new target located 500 m east of the ‘A’ Zone. With the closing of the recent private placement in late December, we are well-funded to complete the drill program and to continue advancing the Goodfish-Kirana Property.”
The drill program will test the ‘A’ Zone downdip (1 hole) and 150 m of strike extension to the east and west in 50-m step-outs (7 holes), as previous drill campaigns indicate the ‘A’ Zone discovery is open in all directions.
The drilling planned for the ‘C’ Zone will continue to test the east-west mineralization trend to the east in 50-m step-outs (2 holes) and downdip of gold intersections (1 hole) from previous drill programs.
Two drill holes will test a structural target located 500 m east of the ‘A’ Zone where an IP anomaly (Induced Polarization) is coincident with an interpreted north-northwest structural break (based on magnetic survey data).
The Winter 2021 diamond drill program is being undertaken with additional COVID-19 protocols to comply with the Ontario Ministry of Health requirements.
