Canstar Resources is pleased to announce it is commencing the 2017 summer drilling program on the Company's 100% owned Kenora Gold Project, located 9 kilometers east of Kenora, Ontario. The program will be comprised of a minimum of 1,500 meters and will include all remaining priority targets on the project.
This drilling program is designed to test numerous IP targets where known gold has been encountered at surface through recent trenching, making them highly prospective. Also, the Company will test the Ace Showing directly located on the mineralized trend ("Aviator trend") whose results include surface channel samples of 29.3 meters (true width) averaging 3.1 g/t gold (see Company's press release dated June 20, 2016). The winter drilling program completed earlier this year prohibited access to the showing due to ground conditions, however, a smaller drilling rig and ability to move ground will allow the Ace Showing to be properly tested.
Danniel Oosterman, President and CEO of Canstar, states: "This program represents a key stage in the project as we feel we have identified the strongest targets to test by drilling. We hope the results of this program will confirm some of the geological ideas we have constructed based on the field work to date, some of which came to light from the Company's previous drilling program. It's an exciting stage for the Kenora Gold Project."
