Columbus Gold Corporation announces that a second drill rig has commenced drilling at its100% owned Eastside gold project in Nevada. Drilling consists of 250 rotary holes, of which 175 holes totaling approximately 45,000 meters (150,000 feet) are planned to be completed in 2015. Subject to results, a third drill rig will be added in the fall.
The purpose of the drilling is to extend the area of known gold mineralization in the Original Target, and to infill gaps between widely spaced existing drill holes containing significant gold. The 2015 drilling also includes up to 25 of the 175 holes to test New Targets 4 and 6, and the northern half of New Target 1.A target map is available at the following link: www.columbusgold.com/i/nr/2015-06-25-map.pdf
