2020 OPERATIONAL OVERVIEW
- The Company had a busy 2020 exploration season which saw exploration programs completed on all seven of its Idaho gold properties.
- Phase I and II geochemical sampling programs completed on its Robber Gulch Carlin-type gold Property (“Robber Gulch”) located near Burley, Idaho, delineated multiple undrilled high-tenor gold-in-soil anomalies including the West, Central, East, and Southern anomalies.
- Four trenches covering a combined 700m of total length were excavated within the West and Central gold-in-soil anomalies which uncovered several sections of intense quartz stockwork veining. The results of this program are expected by early- to mid-December. Immediately following receipt of the trenching results, Gold Lion will commence its inaugural RC drilling program on the Robber Gulch Property. The Company will keep the market informed over the coming weeks in regard to its trenching program results and drilling program updates.
- The Company obtained strong geochemical, geophysics and rock sampling results on its South Orogrande and Dixie Area Gold Properties (see news release dated November 10th, 2020). Gold Lion is currently awaiting approval of its drilling permit application for its South Orogrande and Erickson Ridge properties located near Elk City, Idaho, which it expects to receive in the coming months.
Oliver Friesen, CEO and Corporate Secretary of Gold Lion stated: “The Company is very pleased to recap the operational and corporate advancements made in 2020. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic being prevalent for the majority of the year, Gold Lion was able to forge ahead and complete several field programs on all of its Idaho gold properties, further advancing them towards a drill-ready stage. We look forward to receiving the results of the trenching recently completed on our Robber Gulch Property, as well as the commencement of the Company’s first ever drill program later this month. 2020 has been an exciting year for Gold Lion thus far, and the Company is eager to continue advancing its portfolio of gold and silver focused assets in Idaho.”
