VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Allegiant Gold Ltd. (“ALLEGIANT”) (AUAU: TSX-V) (AUXXF: OTCQX) has granted stock options under its incentive stock option plan (the “Options”) to an Officer and Director for the purchase of up to an aggregate of 750,000 common shares, exercisable at a price of $0.46 per share for a period of 5 years. The Options vest immediately on the date of grant.
ALLEGIANT owns 100% of 14 highly-prospective drill-ready gold projects in the United States, 11 of which are located in the mining-friendly jurisdiction of Nevada. Six of the projects will be drilled over the next 10 to 12 months and all offer excellent discovery opportunity. ALLEGIANT’s flagship Eastside project hosts a large and expanding gold resource, is district scale, and is located in an area of excellent infrastructure. Preliminary metallurgical testing indicates that both oxide and sulphide gold mineralization at Eastside is amenable to heap leaching.
