Atac resumes drilling at Rackla Gold

Atac Resources Ltd. June 22 said it has begun the first phase of 2015 drilling and exploration at its Rackla Gold project in the Yukon Territory.

The phase-1 work will focus on expanding the Carlin-type gold discoveries at the Conrad zone and Anubis cluster within the Nadaleen Trend.

The objectives of this roughly C$3-million program include: shallow diamond drilling to continue testing the eastern portion of the Conrad Upper zone; drilling target at the untested area between the Conrad Upper and Middle zones; step-out drilling from hole OS-14-230 which intersected 42.67 meters of 3.03 grams per metric ton gold at the newly discovered Conrad Lower zone; and rotary air blast drilling targeting the more than 20 geochemical anomalies and structures that lie beneath a thin cover of overburden within the Anubis cluster.

"The 2015 exploration and drilling program is designed to cost-effectively expand mineralized zones at Conrad and refine targets within the Anubis Cluster for future drilling," said Atac CEO Graham Downs.
