Goldstrike sees more VG at Gold Dome

Goldstrike Resources Ltd. June 22 reported that multiple grab samples with visible gold have been collected from mineralized sub-crop on Gold Dome at its Plateau property in the Yukon.

Within the first two days of the current program, four samples with visible gold were taken from new target areas up to 550 meters away from the VG Zone discovery hole on Gold Dome, which cut 7.6 grams per metric ton gold over 9.03 meters.

Drilling to expand the zone of high-grade gold intersected in drilling at Gold Dome and Goldstack is underway.

Both zones remain open, and have not been followed up since the discovery holes were drilled in 2013.

Goldstrike said the visible gold discoveries made this year, together with geophysics and other data, have provided several compelling new drill targets.

Follow-up surface exploration of additional new target areas with strong gold potential is ongoing, and sample assays are pending.
