ML Gold Corp. ("ML Gold" or the "Company") reports that it has received a positive decision on its application for drilling from 13 different locations at the Palmetto Gold Project in Esmeralda County, Nevada. The drilling permit will be finalized once the reclamation bond has been posted at the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in Reno, NV. ML Gold anticipates beginning this drilling program in early March. The program is aimed to confirm and expand existing mineralized zones at the Palmetto Project, and will allow the Company to produce a first ever resource estimate on the property.
The Company also announces that it has retained WSP Canada Inc. (WSP) to complete the maiden resource estimate and technical report on the Palmetto Project.
