Gold Standard Ventures Corp. (GSV:TSX.V; GSV:NYSE) announced in a news release it restarted stepout and infill drilling on the Dark Star oxide gold deposit in Nevada. "We have discovered several new high-potential targets that will make for another exciting year of exploration on our Railroad-Pinion project," CEO and Director Jonathan Awde said in the release.
A continuation of the program begun in September 2018, these new efforts will consist of 9,150 meters (9,150m) of drilling in 67 reverse circulation (RC) holes.
