Revival Gold Inc. reported that drilling on the high-grade Joss target at the Beartrack-Arnett Gold Project located in Idaho, USA, has restarted.
This summer, Joss plans to drill around 2,000 meters of core in three holes. Drilling will continue to define and expand a one-kilometer trend of high-grade gold mineralization comprised of underground mining and milling potential. The eighteen core holes already drilled on the Joss trend yielded high-grade intercepts ranging from 4–11 g/t gold and true widths of 1–5 meters.
Drilling will continue on BT21 240D, which interconnected 4.34 g/t gold over 110.6 meters of drilled width, notably 12 g/t gold over 13.7 meters, and 8.8 g/t gold over almost 11.8 meters.
After finishing drilling at Joss, the drill rig will travel to the Haidee open pit heap leach resource region, where 2,000 meters of infill and expansion core drilling is planned.
Subsequent to the accomplishment of drilling at Haidee, the drill rig will travel to the Roman’s Trench area for a final 1,000 meters of core drilling to follow up on historical reverse circulation drilling that intersected 1.90 g/t gold in near-surface oxides over 21 meters drilled width and 1.95 g/t gold over 18 meters drilled width.
2022 marks our fifth, and potentially, most exciting season of drilling at Beartrack-Arnett. We are kicking it off with follow-up drilling on the Joss target, a target which has proven to be catalytic to our view on the potential for high grade underground mill resources at Beartrack-Arnett.

“We’ll then move to Haidee, where the emphasis is on further definition and expansion of the existing open pit oxide gold resource, and then to Roman’s Trench, which is a new near surface oxide gold exploration drill target for Revival Gold,” said Agro.
Contractor Major Drilling America, Inc. is conducting core drilling, which is projected to last until September. Figure 1 shows a grade-thickness longitudinal section showing the approximate positions of the intended drill holes at Joss.
Revival Gold plans to drill another 3,000 meters of reverse circulation this year at Beartrack-Arnett, based on rig availability, to investigate several other prospective near-surface oxide gold exploration possibilities depending on multiple soil geochemical and geophysics issues.
