Gold Stock News - Green River Gold Corp. (CSE: CCR) Doubles Its Land Package to over 20 Square Kilometers at Its Quesnel Nickel and Fontaine Gold Projects in the Cariboo Mining District
Edmonton, Alberta - February 27, 2023 (Newsfile Corp.) (Investorideas.com Newswire) Green River Gold Corp. (CSE:CCR) (OTC Pink: CCRRF) (the "Company" or "Green River") is pleased to announce that it continues to expand its footprint in the Cariboo Mining District by staking an additional 11,110.98 hectares comprised of 7 mineral tenures at its flagship property in central British Columbia.
Green River Gold Corp. has acquired an additional 11,110.98 hectares of contiguous mineral claims to the east and southeast of the Fontaine Gold Project. Green River Gold Corp. now holds 100-percent ownership of over 20,000 contiguous hectares (200 sq km) of mineral claims at its neighbouring Fontaine Gold and Quesnel Nickel Projects.
The newly acquired mineral claims are contiguous and extend Green River's property an additional 110 sq km to the east and southeast. The newly acquired ground covers an area of extensive recent and planned timber harvesting activity. The newly constructed logging roads, built to access the area, have exposed many sections of bedrock. This allows Green River to prospect greenfield areas of potential mineralization in the Cariboo Gold Belt at a very low cost. Green River's 2023 gold exploration program continues with man-portable drilling, bedrock mapping, Geochem rock and soil sampling, and prospecting the newly exposed bedrock along road cuts within the newly acquired mineral tenures.
Kyle Townsend, Mine Manager for Green River Gold Corp., says, "The addition of this claim package adds further strategic targets that complement our current holdings. The new contiguous claims now share a common boundary with Osisko Development Corp.'s claim package to the east and southeast, and host prospective geology and structural trends important to known mineralization in the Cariboo Mining District."
Perry Little, President and CEO of Green River, comments, "With so much of our focus on nickel over the past two years, it is easy to forget that Green River originally staked the ground primarily for the significant gold potential in the area. We border Osisko's Cariboo Gold Project with its 2 million ounces of reserves and a mine planned to go into production in 2024. Green River has been looking at this additional property for several years, but we felt it was too big a stretch in our early days. With logging operations making access easier, now was the time to act."
As commented by Tyler Tian, the Project Geologist, "The newly staked tenures belong to the Snowshoe Group, which is a combination of siliciclastic and carbonate, volcanic and volcaniclastic rocks from the Barkerville Terrane. The Barkerville trend hosts several inter-related vein systems, which are the primary sources of gold and silver, and it also serves as a primary pathway for sulfide mineralization. I look forward to participating in the fieldwork scheduled for 2023."
