Kelowna, British Columbia – July 12, 2018 - Golden Ridge Resources Ltd. (“Golden Ridge” or the “Company”) (TSXV: GLDN) is pleased to announce that drilling has commenced with a second diamond drill rig at its Hank project located in BC’s Golden Triangle. The second drill rig is set up on the Kaip Zone (KZ) target and is testing the continuation of mineralization at depth below HNK-17-009 (see press release January 8, 2018). Drill hole HNK-17-009 returned 21.62m of 6.26g/t Au and 52.1g/t Ag within a crowded feldspar porphyry dyke with higher gold and silver grades occurring within the fractured and faulted halo of the dyke.
The Kaip Zone was named after a joint BCGS/MDRU research paper completed by Andrew W. Kaip who recognized that the lead isotope signature of sulphides associated with gold mineralization matched that of the Bald Bluff porphyry, a large intrusive stock at the south end of the property (Kaip, 1997). It is interpreted that the altered intrusive intersected in HNK-17-009 is related to the Bald Bluff porphyry and likely represents one of several causative mineralizing intrusions on the property.
Upon completion of drilling of up to 1500m at the Kaip Zone the drill will move to the Boiling Zone target (BZ) which consists of a 500m diameter gold-in-soil anomaly (up to 10 g/t Au) that has never been drill tested.
