VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA– – Scorpio Gold Corp. {TSX.V: SGN) reports final results from 2016 exploration drilling on the NW Brodie trend at its 70% owned Mineral Ridge project, located in Nevada.


The NW Brodie trend extends over a 500 meter strike length between the Brodie and Bluelite deposits. Exploration drilling in 2014-2015 on the NW Brodie trend was based on a geological model of shallow dipping, multiple stacked veins, which is consistent with mineralisation in the Bluelite and Brodie deposits.


Inconsistencies in the drilling results prompted a detailed examination of the data and an oriented core drilling program. An updated geological model was completed in 2016. The mineralisation within the NW Brodie trend is now interpreted as a corridor of multiple tensional quartz veins with an average strike and dip of 255°/-60°. Due to the more steeply dipping nature of the mineralization, prior drilling with vertically oriented RC holes intersected the mineralisation at acute angles, resulting in thicker intersections than true widths.


Based on depths to mineralisation and current gold prices, the NW Brodie area is not considered economic at this time and no further work is currently planned in the area.
