Q-Gold Announces Launch of Phase 1 Drill Program at High-Grade Foley Gold Mine Complex, Ontario

The fully funded and permitted Phase 1 drill program will include over 2,700 m of drilling, targeting the well-defined high-grade gold vein system at the past-producing Foley Gold Mine. With the drill-rig now onsite, drilling is expected to commence on April 21, 2021.

TORONTO, Ontario, CANADA


TORONTO, April 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Q-Gold Resources Ltd (TSXV:QGR, OTC:QGLDF, FRA:QX9G) (“Q-Gold” or the “Company”), a Canada-based mineral exploration company targeting high-grade gold and silver discoveries in multiple jurisdictions, is pleased to announce the launch of its 2021 drill program at its wholly-owned Foley Gold Mine complex in Ontario.

Over the past two months, Q-Gold geologists have completed an extensive data compilation and 3D Leapfrog modeling of the high-grade gold-vein system that includes over 5,900 m of NI 43-101 compliant drilling with results of up to 53.47 g/t Au over 1.5 m and 106.7 g/t Au over 0.23 m (refer to Q-Gold Resources press release September 30, 2020 for additional details). This exercise has resulted in the finalization of a two-phase drill program.

Phase 1 includes a total of 2,745 m of approved holes that will infill and extend coverage to the -200 m depth. The approved program will allow Q-Gold to infill and extend previous drilling on the four main vein arrays at the past-producing Foley Gold Mine (see Figure 1 below). Phase 2 contains an additional 4,035 m that will add additional infill holes as well as expand coverage laterally and down to -225 m depth.

“Our team is pleased with the results of the modeling and are excited to move ahead with drilling on the high-grade Foley Gold Mine property,” comments Patrick Lengyel, Exploration Manager of Q-Gold. “Further, the sizeable land position has considerable upside with its range of drill-ready targets on multiple historic deposits as well as enormous grassroots potential that has not been tested with modern exploration methods.”
