Renaissance Gold Inc. TSX.V:REN ("RenGold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the start of a follow-up drilling program on its Jupiter Project, Nye County, Nevada. The Jupiter Project is subject to an earn-in agreement with Ramelius Resources Limited (ASX:RMS). (see NR dated June 21, 2017).
Robert Felder, President and CEO states, "We are very pleased to have our partner returning for a second round of drilling. The drill results from 2017 identified significant gold mineralization nearly a kilometer away from previously known gold mineralization on the property. This opens up a large, prospective area for discovery on the project and we are very much looking forward to the results of this exciting program"
In 2017, Ramelius completed a seven-hole, reverse circulation ("RC") drilling program, totaling 1195 meters (3920 feet) representing a preliminary test of two target areas. Six of the seven holes were drilled in the NE Pediment Gravity Target, and one hole was drilled as a first test of the Eagle Target. The NE Pediment target returned four holes with anomalous gold mineralization, with the best intercept of 9.1m @ 1.1 g/t Au (See NR dated January 29, 2018). These four holes were drilled across significant graben-bounding structures interpreted from gravity data and intersected a consistent increase in gold grade to the southeast (See Figure 1).
The current Phase II follow-up program includes plans for 1524m (5000 feet) of RC drilling in 7 holes, offsetting the mineralization encountered in the Phase I program, and also drilling structural targets to explore for potential higher grade feeder structures.
All technical data disclosed in this press release has been verified by RenGold's Qualified Person, Robert Felder, M.Sc. and Certified Professional Geologist (CPG #11012) as recognized by the American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG).
