Vancouver, British Columbia – October 20th, 2022 – Sky Gold Corp. (TSX-V: SKYG) (US:SRKZF) ("Sky Gold Corp." or the “Company”) announces work has commenced with Goldspot Discoveries Group Corp, a division of EarthLabs Inc. (TSX-V:SPOT) on the Company’s Mustang property located adjacent to New Found Gold Corp. (TSX-V:NFG) in Newfoundland. The focus of this program will be to advance drill targets at both the Mustang Fault and parallel splays to the Appleton Fault.
Vincent Dubé-Bourgeous, CEO of EarthLabs states, “The discovery of gold showings at the Mustang property date back to 1987. We feel that despite the limited drilling and lack of outcrop, our knowledge of the area combined with the data gathered over the last several decades, will lend itself to creating a strong series of drill targets for a 2023 campaign.”
The Outflow, Piper and Mustang prospects now comprise the “Mustang Zone” a NE-SW trending structural zone that is parallel to New Found Gold Corp’s Keats Zone associated with the similar trending NE-SW Appleton fault. The mustang trend is 1.3km west of Appleton/Keats showing.
The Mustang structural zone extends for more 3 kilometres on the Property and is hosted in dark gray greywacke and shale of the Davidsville Group. The Mustang Zone is a regional scale feature with widespread low-sulphidation epithermal gold mineralization, associated with fault zones and chalcedonic silica (comb-textured and crustiform quartz textures) and hydrothermal brecciation. To date, the plus 3-kilometre strike length has only been partially tested by less than 5,500 metres of drilling, with multiple, widespread gold intersections at shallow depths.
In late 2020, to mid 2021 the Company completed 19 diamond drill holes (3,283 meters) on a 1.2 kilometre strike of the Mustang Zone on the eastern portion of the property. The Company also completed geological mapping, prospecting, soil geochemistry and magnetics geophysics over portions of the Mustang property, with multiple soil geochemical anomalies (multi-elements, Au, As, Sb, Hg) indicated, that have not been drill tested.
“Our last drill program at Mustang did show us there is gold in the system. With the Goldspot team utilizing their technology and knowledge of the area on our drill and ground work data we are confident that new and exciting drill targets will be generated.” stated Mike England, CEO of Sky Gold.
