Barrick has now completed the second hole of the 2014 diamond core hole drill program on the Gold Ridge property located in Crescent Valley, Nevada. With the second hole now complete, the drill rig has been moved and has started on the third hole.
Barrick is targeting Carlin-type mineralization in the lower plate which hosts large mines on the Carlin Gold Belt as well as the nearby Pipeline, Cortez Hills, Gold Acres and Gold Rush projects on the Cortez trend.
The Gold Ridge claims are separate and adjacent to Coral’s core claims at Robertson which host an inferred gold resource of 2.7 million ounces, a portion of which was the subject of a PEA in 2012. To view a map of Coral’s claims and the Cortez trend, click here: Coral Gold Claims Map
