Victoria Gold Corp.'s (VIT:TSX.V) 2018 exploration program at Dublin Gulch has begun. Two diamond drills and heavy equipment are now on the property. Satellite camps have been erected so that efforts do not hamper building of the Eagle gold mine that, too, is underway. "While mine construction is Victoria's primary focus this year, the company does not intend to let the untapped mineral potential of the Dublin Gulch property remain untested," said Victoria Gold President and CEO John McConnell.
This year's exploration campaign at the Yukon asset will focus on the Olive-Shamrock, Bluto, Nugget and VBW targets. "Any of these target areas have the potential to host another Eagle or Olive-Shamrock style deposit, and we look forward to demonstrating additional, definable gold deposits across the highly prospective Dublin Gulch property in the coming years," McConnell added.
At Olive-Shamrock-Spinach, Victoria Gold will do stepout and definition drilling, aiming to expand the "known, near-surface, minable tonnage along the mineralized shear zone," the news release noted. The company will conduct advanced exploration at Bluto, Nugget and two high-priority targets on the Potato Hills Trend.
Along with the above drilling, work will encompass "mapping, prospecting, surface trenches, soils geochemistry, geophysical surveys and diamond drilling," the release noted.
