Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – January 12, 2021) – Ready Set Gold Corp. (CSE: RDY) (“Ready Set Gold” or the “Company“), a newly-listed junior gold exploration company exploring in the Hemlo region of Ontario, is pleased to report on gold exploration from the 2020 Fall Exploration Program on the “Northshore Gold” project located near Schreiber, Ontario.
The Company has:
- completed high-resolution airborne magnetic and Lidar surveys
- analyzed lithological observations, structural measurements, and structural features to understand the structural events affecting the gold mineralization
- Integrated the structural information and high-resolution magnetic / Lidar data to develop a geological interpretation for the structures and gold mineralization

To view an enhanced version of this graphic, please visit:
- Completed a review of vein composition, textures, and geometry to understand the relationship between vein development and gold mineralization
- Submitted Exploration Plans to the Government of Ontario
- Completed 40 linear metres of trenching to follow up previous surface and boulder sample results from earlier in the year with channel samples taken on exposed veins
- results confirm the gold mineralized system in the No 4 Vein, and indicate a potential extension of the No 5 Vein

The fall exploration was a follow up to work completed in July 2020. Previously reported highlights from the July sampling / mapping included high-grade gold values from quartz veins, both within and outside of the “Afric” deposit, are listed below: (Note: these are selected grab samples taken where strong mineralization or visible gold was noted which are not representative of the overall grade of the veins).

ABOUT NORTHSHORE GOLD PROJECT:
The Northshore Gold Project is located in the Hemlo-Schreiber greenstone belt, the host of the world-famous Hemlo Gold Camp, to the south of the former producing Winston Lake copper-zinc-gold-silver deposit. The Property is approximately 4 kilometres to the south of the town of Schreiber, Ontario and approximately 70 kilometres to the west, along the Trans-Canada Highway, from the Hemlo Gold Deposit. The project hosts gold mineralized zones, including the former producing North Shore Mine and the more recently defined Afric Zone, some of which contain spectacular visible gold in association with multi-phase quartz / quartz-carbonate veins.
In a report titled “Technical Report on the Mineral Resources of the Northshore Property” dated July 2nd, 2014, GTA Resources reported that the Afric Zone contained 391,000 ounces gold in 12,360,000 tonnes at a grade of 0.99 g/t gold in the Indicated category, and 824,000 ounces gold in 29,580,000 tonnes at a grade of 0.87 g/t gold in the Inferred category, using a cut-off grade of 0.50 grams gold per tonne. Ready Set plans to further investigate the opportunity to expand this deposit in all directions as well as to depth.
Past drilling campaign highlights:

Note: GTA data is filed on SEDAR
Modern exploration has almost exclusively been focussed on the “Afric” Deposit. Ready Set Gold plans include confirming and expanding the Afric zone and systematically evaluating vein related high-grade gold in an approximate 600 metre radius around the deposit where structurally related high-grade veins are known. One target is the “Main Vein” located approximately 550 meters to the north of Afric which was mined from 1934 to 1941 producing 2,441 oz Au from 3,808 tons of milled ore before stopping due to reasons associated with WWII. The Main Vein area has not been drilled but has been mapped over a 500 m east-west distance.
Christian Scovenna, CEO & Director of Ready Set Gold., “The summer and fall exploration work conducted on our flagship property, demonstrates that that there is merit in advancing the “Afric” deposit, with its defined resources, as well as pursuing opportunities provided by the under explored, high-grade vein systems, which provide blue-sky potential for early-stage investors.”
Sampling, Analyses, and QAQC:
The samples from the trenching program are chip/channel samples of outcrop/sub-crop in the trenches. Sample preparation and assays were completed at SGS Canada using industry standard sample preparation and analytical techniques including GE FAA30V5 – Au, FAS – exploration grade, AAS, 30g-5ml; GE FUZ90A50 – Fusion, 550°C, HNO3, ICPAES, 0.1g-50ml, Zr crucibles; GE_IMS90A50 – Na2O2 Fusion, HNO3, ICP-MS, 0.1g-50ml; GO_FAG30V – Au, FAS, Gravimetric, 30g; for Au as required. QA/QC included Certified Reference Materials and blank materials. All samples were in the possession of Company geologist from collection to submission at the SGS Canada Laboratory in Sudbury, ON, and then transported by SGS to their facility in Burnaby, BC.
