TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - March 16, 2015) - Reliant Gold Corp. ("Reliant" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:REC) is pleased to announce that it has staked 56 claim units totaling 896 hectares in the McVicar Lake area located approximately 90 kilometres west of Pickle Lake and 130 kilometres southwest of the Goldcorp Inc. Musselwhite Gold Mine which produced 278,000 ounces of gold in 2014.
The newly acquired, 100% owned claims, named the "East Bay Property", cover a series of historical gold occurrences and prospects aligned along a west northwest arced trend across the eastern part of McVicar Lake, the most prominent being the Altered Zone and North Flexure Zone. A report with respect to the East Bay Property dated January 31, 2004 filed with the Ministry of Northern Development and Mines, Ontario entitled "Report on the 2003 Overburden Stripping, Geological Mapping and Sampling Program conducted on the McVicar Lake Property, Patricia Mining Division, Northwestern Ontario" (the "Report") and prepared for Continuum Resources Ltd. and Prospector Consolidated Resources Inc. by D.B. McKay, M.Sc., P.Geo. of Eveleigh Geological Consulting describes the previous work performed on the property and surrounding area and results thereof. The Report was filed on SEDAR by Continuum Resources Ltd. on February 16, 2004. The exploration results summarized in the Report are historical in nature and were compiled by previous operators, in part, prior to the implementation of National Instrument 43-101 and are noted for reference purposes only. Because these results were compiled by previous operators, Reliant has not verified them as yet and they should not be relied upon.
The report lists a total of thirteen significant gold bearing intersections on the Altered Zone and North Flexure Zone from previous diamond drilling programs conducted between 1984 and 2003 as follows:
|HOLE NUMBER||INTERVAL (metres)||LENGTH
The nature of the geological setting of the mineralized bodies results in highly variable shapes and orientations of the zones and, as a result, no estimation of the true width of the intersections can be provided for these results at this stage.
The gold bearing intervals occur in an area of intense shearing, alteration, and quartz veining situated along a basalt - gabbro contact which trends westerly across McVicar Lake for four kilometres. No significant drilling has been reported on the property over the lake between or to the west of the Altered Zone and North Flexure Zone. The property has not had the benefit of modern ground geophysical surveys in order to follow the zones and define new drill targets, especially along its favorable trend over the lake.
President and CEO, Errol Farr, states, "After considerable review, the Company is commencing a search for and acquisition of prospective mineral properties in North America. The acquisition of the East Bay Property, located in northern Ontario, is the first step in this strategy. The Company plans to conduct an exploration program in the summer of 2015, which may include prospecting, soil and surface rock sampling and geophysics to better understand the geologic setting and identify potential drill targets. The Company is also pleased with and supports the acquisition by Goldcorp Inc. by way of a plan of arrangement of Probe Mines Limited ("Probe") and its Borden Lake discovery. Probe is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Goldcorp Inc. The Company is party to a joint venture agreement with Probe on the Borden Lake South Property which is located adjacent to Probe's Borden Lake discovery."
