- Drilling at Beatty South Copper project will follow.
Vancouver, British Columbia, February 24, 2021 - Searchlight Resources Inc. (“Searchlight” or the “Company”) (TSXV:SCLT, US:CNYCF) is pleased to announce that a diamond drill rig and geological team have been mobilized to the Henning-Maloney gold target located 6 kilometres south of Creighton, Saskatchewan, and the historic Flin Flon mining camp.
The Henning-Maloney drill program is part of the 49.9 sq km Bootleg Lake Gold project which covers four past-producing gold mines, including Henning-Maloney. The drill target area is approximately 6 km south of Creighton and Flin Flon, and 600 metres along a groomed winter road, from the main all-weather road. The drill program of 3 NQ diamond drill holes is designed to verify historic gold mineralization and to drill beneath the past-producing gold mine.
Upon completion of this drill program, the drill will be moved to the Beatty South Copper project located about 25 km from Henning-Maloney by highway and all-weather roads (Map 1).
“It is great to have the drill on-site to start the 2021 winter exploration program”, stated Stephen Wallace, President and CEO of Searchlight. “This is one of the two planned drill programs targeting high priority copper and gold targets in the Flin Flon Greenstone Belt”.
English Bay Project
On February 18, 2021 Searchlight terminated the English Bay option. After extensive lab and visual analysis of the drill core, the Company could not verify the gold results described by the vendor in multiple drill reports submitted to the Saskatchewan government.
