The drilling on Rivard will focus on testing a structural corridor, containing high-grade gold veins, both along strike and at depth and determine its impact on the Newman Todd Structure to the east.
Russell Starr, CEO of Trillium Gold comments “Receiving the drill permit for Rivard is an exciting moment for Trillium Gold and our shareholders and is the beginning of several drill permits to come. The Rivard Property, which is covers part of the sSouthwest extension of Newman Todd, has high grade visible gold at surface throughout property and has yet to be drilled in any meaningful way. The opportunity to drill the intersection of Rivard’s high-grade gold bearing veins and the Newman Todd structure and should create tremendous value for all our shareholders.”
