Scorpio confirms additional resources from drilling at Bluelite

Scorpio Gold {TSX.V SGN} continue to report good drilling results from their Mineral Ridge Property (70%) in Nevada, this time from the Bluelite Satellite Deposit.

Scorpio continue to announce good drill results from their Nevada properties, which, in a more receptive market, would create increased shareholder value.

It is imperative to increase the life of mine in the near to medium term, and Scorpio are delivering on that.

Official news release

Scorpio Gold Corporation {TSX-V: SGN} reports additional results Scorpio Gold Reports Results from 2014 Expansion Drilling at the Bluelite Satellite Deposit, Mineral Ridge Project, Nevada, USA.

As reported in the Company’s July 21, 2014 news release, an updated Life of Mine Plan (“LOM”) for the Mineral Ridge Operation encompasses the currently producing Drinkwater and Mary LC pits and five adjacent satellite deposits, including the Bluelite deposit.

The cut-off date for the LOM was March 31, 2014. Continued drilling since the March 31, 2014 cut-off date is designed to potentially upgrade and increase the reported mineral reserve and resource estimate and potentially extend life of mine.

Drilling on the Bluelite deposit continues to meet with success, returning significant intercepts both within and extending outside of the pit shell outline modelled in the updated LOM.

Management fully expects these results will lead to an upgrade and expansion of the mineral resources currently defined for the Bluelite deposit.

Highlights from this latest phase of drilling on the Bluelite deposit include:

  • MR141036: 1.47 grams per tonne (“g/t”) gold over 10.67 meters
  • MR141037: 0.93 g/t gold over 16.76 meters
  • MR141040: 1.93 g/t gold over 7.62 meters
  • MR141067: 0.99 g/t gold over 13.72 meters
  • MR141117: 1.87 g/t gold over 9.14 meters
  • MR141120: 6.37 g/t gold over 9.14 meters
