Mining Stock News: Ridgeline Minerals (TSXV: RDG) Commences Phase I Drill Program at the Swift Gold Project, Nevada


Vancouver, British Columbia - September 24, 2020 (Newsfile Corp.) ( Newswire) Ridgeline Minerals Corp. (TSXV: RDG) ("Ridgeline" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has mobilized a reverse circulation ("RC") drill rig to its Swift gold project located in Lander County, Nevada (Figure 1.0). The project is fully permitted for up to 15 drill sites with the initial Phase I program totaling 2,000 meters ("m") across three RC scout holes. Drilling will target Carlin-Type gold mineralization at the Fallen City target which falls within a highly anomalous zone of structurally controlled surface geochemistry bounded by the northwest trending Cortez Structural Corridor. Assay results will be published following completion of the Phase I drill program.

Chad Peters, Ridgeline's President and CEO commented, "The Phase I, 2,000m drill program will be the first drill-holes on the property to test the Fallen City target, which is one of three high-priority targets identified by the company in 2020. Our re-interpreted geologic model highlights the Fallen City as a potential structural trap for Carlin-Type gold mineralization where it intersects favourable carbonate host rocks on a previously untested portion of the Cortez Structural Corridor."

Swift Project

Swift is a Carlin-Type gold exploration project located on the Cortez District of the Battle Mountain - Eureka Trend in Nevada with Ridgeline holding the option to earn a 100% interest in the project. The Property is immediately adjacent to the historic Elder Creek gold mine as well as directly on trend of The Pipeline, Cortez Hills and Goldrush deposits which comprise the Nevada Gold Mines owned and operated Cortez Complex. Throughout 2019 and the first half of 2020, Ridgeline completed property-wide gravity and airborne magnetics geophysics, surface soil sampling, and field mapping while completing its 3D geologic model.
