TORONTO, Sept. 16, 2015 /CNW/ - Richmond Minerals Inc. (TSX-V: RMD) ("Richmond" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that diamond drilling will resume on September 21st, 2015 at the Company's Ridley Lake Gold Project located in the west central area of the Swayze Greenstone belt approximately 35 kilometres east of Goldcorp's Borden Gold Project. Diamond drilling at the Ridley Lake Gold Project has been delayed for 26 years due to a protracted civil litigation that was finally resolved in Richmond's favour earlier this year.
This phase of diamond drilling will be focused on targets identified within the Company's 100%-owned claims located immediately east of the Aguara gold showing. Specifically these holes will be collared to test a well-defined IP anomaly characterized by high chargeability and resistivity and a prominent coincidental magnetic anomaly (the "Aguara East anomaly"), having a northeast orientation and a strike length in excess of 825 meters. The Company is planning to drill a minimum of 1,500 meters for this phase of diamond drilling and results will be released as they become available.
As reported in previous news releases, a limited IP/Resistivity survey conducted in 1983 identified a high chargeability and resistivity anomaly (the "Aguara anomaly") having a strike length of approximately 245 meters. This limited IP/resistivity survey demonstrated a clear association between the northeast trending Aguara gold showing and a northeast striking anomalous IP/Resistivity trend. The diamond drill programme conducted in 1989 substantiated the association between significant intervals of gold mineralization and the results of the limited IP/Resistivity.
