Liberty Gold Corp. (LGD:TSX) announced in a news release it launched a 2019 drilling program at two of its past-producing gold projects: Black Pine in Idaho and Goldstrike in Utah.
"We are targeting multi-million ounce deposits at both properties, and we expect to be well on our way to achieving this goal by the end of the year," President and CEO Cal Everett said in the release.
At Black Pine, 80–100 reverse circulation holes will be drilled over 16,000 meters (16,000m) to test the core of an oxide gold system. Drilling will start near Liberty Gold previously drilled hole, LBP002.
