Unigold Inc. ("Unigold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Board of Directors has approved resumption of a focused exploration drilling program on the Neita Concession. Field crews are mobilizing to drill the Loma de Montazo target.
The advanced exploration targets identified for this 5,000 meter phase of the 2014 drill program have been extensively examined geologically and have been defined through the detailed field work and exploration efforts completed during 2014. The first target to be tested is Loma De Montazo, which is located approximately 2 kilometers along the north-west trend from Candelones, where an inferred mineral resource of 39.5 million tonnes averaging 1.6 g/t gold for 2.0 million ounces of gold has been previously defined. Loma de Montazo returned the largest and strongest IP chargeability and resistivity response on the property. It is also associated with a distinct NE structural break defined by airborne geophysical surveys. Epithermal style alteration has been observed in field mapping and anomalous copper mineralization was intersected in historical drilling located to the immediate south of the drill target.
"We are very excited to initiate our 2014 drill program. The geological team has completed excellent, diligent and professional work in defining and refining these drill targets," said Andrew Cheatle, President and CEO of Unigold Inc. "We are also very pleased to have our Board support to complete this work. Unigold's owned drill has now been mobilized to our first target and our locally trained and skilled drill crews are keen and ready to begin drilling."
Unigold's highly experienced geological team has now completed extensive exploration work and refined four of Neita's 25 plus targets to 'drill ready' status. Local scale mapping is also in progress at KM6, Mariano Cestero and Valle Nuevo. Unigold has also completed trenching at Cerro Berro, Cerro Simon, Jiminez and Cruz de Cabrera targets.
Unigold has sufficient funding to meet the goals and objectives established for the current exploration program.
