Ready Set Gold Initiates Phase 1 Drilling Program at Northshore Gold Project

Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – January 26, 2021) – Ready Set Gold Corp. (CSE: RDY) (“Ready Set Gold” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that the Phase 1 diamond drilling program has recently begun at the Company’s Flagship Northshore Gold project (“Northshore” or the “Project”) located in the gold producing Hemlo region of Ontario. Three drill holes have been completed to date.

“The Company has concluded, through its 2020 field work and its geological review/modelling of historical exploration data, that the Northshore project remains underexplored and offers tremendous exploration upside potential. This first drill program is an important step towards confirming historical work as well as growing the value at Northshore for shareholders,” stated Ready Set Gold Corp’s CEO Christian Scovenna.

A primary focus for the Phase 1, 3,000 m program, is to define the gold grade continuity of the Afric Zone to aid in the further development of the geological model. The drilling will advance the Company’s efforts towards defining a NI 43-101 mineral resource on the Afric Zone and will evaluate potential extensions to the east and the west and to depth. The program will also test, relatively untested, parallel east-west vein systems, to the north of the Afric Zone, such as the #4, #5, Gino and Main veins (shown on the map below).
