Initiation of Phase 2 Drill Program by Osino Resources Corp. at Twin Hills Cluster

After the success of the initial drill program at Twin Hills Central completed during August 2019, Osino Resources Corp. takes pleasure in announcing the start of the Phase 2 drill program at the Twin Hills Cluster, Karibib Gold Project, Namibia. Five of the seven holes drilled in the initial drill program intersected considerable mineralization.

The Phase 1 drilling at Twin Hills Central exceeded our expectations and we have already started a Phase 2 program to build on this success. The Phase 2 program will cover 2000m strike length at Twin Hills Central as well as testing the bedrock anomalies at Twin Hills West, Barking Dog and Clouds.

Dave Underwood, VP, Exploration, Osino Resources Corp.

Underwood continued, “The Twin Hills West prospect is beginning to look particularly exciting with a large-scale, coincident gold and arsenic anomaly, as well as the highest bedrock assays encountered to date at the Twin Hills Cluster (2.69g/t Au).”

Phase 2 RC and Diamond Drill Program at Twin Hills Cluster

The focus of Phase 2 drilling will be on the following primary concerns:

  • Twin Hills Central: About 5500 m of in-fill and step-out drilling intended to extend the mineralized horizon along strike and down dip. This drilling will include 23 diamond and RC holes along seven fence lines separated 200 m apart with 100 m borehole spacing. In addition to the seven Phase 1 boreholes, this drilling will analyze a strike length of 2000 m at Twin Hills Central.
  • Twin Hills West: Around 2000 m of first pass diamond and RC drilling of recently defined bedrock gold and arsenic anomalies. This drilling includes nine diamond and RC holes along three fence lines over 600 m of strike length on the coincident gold and arsenic anomaly. Twin Hills West owns certainly the largest arsenic anomaly in the Twin Hills Cluster and the highest bedrock gold value so far of 2.69 g/t.
  • Barking Dog and Clouds: About 2500 m of first pass diamond and RC drilling of recently defined bedrock gold and arsenic anomalies. This drilling includes 13 diamond and RC holes along four fence lines, using two lines each for Barking Dog and Clouds, respectively.

All holes are expected to be no less than 200 m deep and will be drilled top-to-bottom at an angle of 60° toward 160 (SSE).

The aim of this drill program is to better define the discovery at Twin Hills Central, to drill test the other recently defined gold prospects, and to make more extensive gold discoveries within the Twin Hills Cluster.
