Redstar mobilizes to drill Unga

Redstar Gold Corp. Oct. 5 said it is planning a 1,500-meter drill program at its high-grade Unga gold project in Alaska.

Scheduled to start in late October, the drilling will focus on outlining additional high-grade gold mineralization at the Shumagin zone along strike and at depth.

The company anticipates a larger drill program in spring 2017, after all results from this second phase of 2016 exploration are received and modeled.

"With the drill rig currently at site, we are immediately mobilizing our technical team to the Unga gold project to initiate the drill program by the end of October," said Redstar President and CEO Peter Ball.

"The Shumagin gold zone has already delivered exceptional high-grade gold intersections, and we look forward to the next set of results from the upcoming Phase 2 drill program.

The 2016 summer exploration program at Shumagin assisted in refining new exploration targets, and has fully prepared our technical team to initiate the next phase of drilling, which follows significant results from the 2011 and 2015 drill programs."
