Vancouver, British Columbia - May 3, 2018 (Newsfile Corp.) (Investorideas.com Newswire) OSPREY GOLD DEVELOPMENT LTD. (the "Company" or "Osprey") (TSXV: OS) (OTCQB: OSSPF) is pleased to announce the commencement of its 2018 exploration programs on the ground in Nova Scotia, Canada. The first phase of work has begun at the Caribou Gold Project ("Caribou"), located approximately 80 kilometers northeast of the city of Halifax, Nova Scotia.
"We are happy to start our 2018 exploration with work at the Caribou project. Through the winter, we've been busy with desktop data compilation and interpretation, and have prioritized several key areas where we believe near surface mineralization may be present within the host rock argillites," said Company President Cooper Quinn. "This program will look to advance these areas, especially the Dixon-Truro Trend and Elk Zone targets, to a drill ready stage. We'll also be working to identify additional stockwork or "fissure vein" style mineralization at Caribou, as these zones historically provided some of the best grades and widths in the area, both in historic production records and previous exploration."
This initial phase of work at Caribou will consist of re-analysis of historic core, surface sampling and mapping, followed by mechanical trenching. Analysis of previous drilling will start on two zones where previous work left large intervals of potentially mineralized sediments outside the gold-bearing quartz veins unsampled. The Dixon-Truro Trend on the south limb of the anticline was drilled by Seabright Exploration in 1988; the Elk Zone, on the north limb of the anticline at the boundary of the Goldenville and Halifax sedimentary formations, was subject to a limited drill program in 1987, with five holes focused on one vein target. Several holes from each zone will have unsampled zones split and submitted for analysis. A mechanical trenching program will follow this work, and will be focused on extensions of both zones with the goal to fully develop new drill targets on the property.
