Securing of Drill Contractor and Rig

Ashley Gold has entered contract with local contractor 518 Drilling Ltd. out of Dryden and Winnipeg for our upcoming Tabor Lake Drill program.  Ashley will be drilling up to 1,000m of NQ core subject to permitting consultation.  This will provide much needed modern information on the structure and mineralization of veins and ‘wall-rock’ at Tabor.

Darcy Christian, President of Ashley, commented, “We are very excited to work with 518 Drilling in our first drill program. Mike and Kevin are highly experienced and capable individuals that provide an excellent skill-set to get our program completed in a safe, environmentally responsible and cost competitive way.  “I am looking forward to continued collaboration with them”.

Tabor Lake Drill Program Targets (subject to permitting consultations)

  • Above the 125ft level to test main mineralized zone and previously identified “greenstone” facies;
  • Between the 125ft and 250ft historic shaft levels to test main mineralized zone and potential of high-grade intersection in the shaft; and
  • Below the 250ft level to test deeper mineralization intersected by historical DDH-8
  • Potential step-out targets to be confirmed with upcoming inversion of drone magnetics


The acquisition of modern data will provide the following:

  • Historic drilling is from the 50’s to 80’s and most data including core is missing; historical assays are non-compliant from a NI-43-101
  • Testing extent of ‘known’ mineralization both in the veins as well as “Wall Rock”
  • Core measurements are needed for structural understanding
  • Mineralogical analysis to determine timing of mineralization with comparison to structural timing
  • Data will be used to refine geological and structural model and plan upcoming exploration programs

Ashley currently has a private placement open to fund its first drill program this summer on the Tabor Lease.
