TORONTO, Sept. 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
(“Revival Gold” or the “Company”), is pleased to provide additional results from the Company’s 2021 drilling program and provide an update on exploration at the Beartrack-Arnett Gold Project (“Beartrack-Arnett”) located in Idaho, USA.
- BT21-238D intersected 6.79 g/t gold over 6.0 meters and 12.6 g/t gold over 1.2 meters within 2.84 g/t gold over 50.0 meters 1 ;
- BT21-238D was drilled on the Joss high-grade gold target approximately 180 meters north along strike of BT21-237D, which intersected 11.79 g/t gold over 2.5 meters and 5.36 g/t gold over 5.8 meters within 84.6 meters at 2.67 g/t gold 1 (see August 5 th , 2021, press release);
- BT21-239DB, collared approximately 400-meters south of the southern-most drillhole at Joss, intersected a zone of fracture-controlled sericite alteration. Analysis and an interpretation are pending;
- A total of four core holes for 1,800 meters have been completed to-date this year at Joss;
- Drilling at Beartrack-Arnett is now focused with two rigs on the Haidee heap leach gold target where six holes have been completed so far this year for an additional 1,100 meters ; and,
- 2,500 meters of drilling , including geotechnical, hydrological and approximately eleven exploration core holes, are planned to be completed in the Haidee area this Fall.
1 Drilled width; true width is estimated to be between 40% and 70% of drilled width.
Drilling at the high-grade Joss target at Beartrack-Arnett returned intersections of 6.79 g/t gold over 6.0 meters and 12.6 g/t gold over 1.2 meters within 2.84 g/t gold over 50.0 meters in hole BT21-238D. This hole, along with BT21-237D, were exploration core holes targeting an approximate 300-meter gap between previous drill holes and confirmed the continuity of high-grade mineralization in this area. The Company also collared drill hole BT21-239DB approximately 400-meters south of the southern-most drillhole at Joss. This hole intersected a zone of fracture-controlled sericite alteration, that is similar to alteration associated with mineralization elsewhere at Beartrack. Geochemical analysis and an interpretation of the geology for BT21-239DB are in progress.
“We are thrilled to have intersected another broad interval of gold mineralization with high-grade intercepts in the Joss area. Results from BT21-238D are consistent with the impressive intercepts from BT21-237D located 180 meters to the south. These results are entirely beyond the existing mineral resource at Beartrack-Arnett and provide further evidence of the high grade and continuity of mineralization at Joss”, said Hugh Agro, Revival Gold, President & CEO.
Detailed results for the drill hole released today are presented in the table below:
1 True width is estimated to be between 40% and 70% of drilled width. Numbers may not add up due to rounding.
Results from BT21-238D are similar to those reported for drill hole BT21-237D, located approximately 180 meters to the south along the Panther Creek Shear Zone (see August 5 th , 2021, press release). As with BT21-237D, several intervals of higher-grade mineralization are contained within a broader mineralized intersection in BT21-238D.
Drill hole BT21-239DB intersected fracture-controlled sericite alteration in metasediments of the Yellowjacket Formation, the host rock for mineralization in the Joss area. Samples from drill hole BT21-239DB have been submitted for geochemical analysis and geological interpretation.

Drilling at Haidee commenced in early August with one rig. Now, with the completion of BT21-239DB at Joss, drilling at Haidee is continuing with two rigs.
The 2021 drilling program at Haidee consists of 2,500 meters of engineering and exploration core drilling to augment and expand on the current Haidee Mineral Resource for the first phase restart of gold production from Beartrack-Arnett. Six core holes have been completed for approximately 1,100 meters to-date. Results are pending.

About Revival Gold Inc.
Revival Gold Inc. is a growth-focused gold exploration and development company. The Company is advancing the Beartrack-Arnett Gold Project located in Idaho, USA.
Beartrack-Arnett is the largest past-producing gold mine in Idaho. A Preliminary Economic Assessment has been completed for a first phase restart of heap leach operations to produce 72,000 ounces of gold per year over an initial seven-year mine life at an AISC of $1,057 per ounce of gold. Meanwhile, exploration continues, focused on expanding the current Indicated Mineral Resource of 36.6 million tonnes at 1.15 g/t gold containing 1.36 million ounces of gold and Inferred Mineral Resource of 47.1 million tonnes at 1.08 g/t gold containing 1.64 million ounces of gold. The mineralized trend at Beartrack extends for over five kilometers and is open on strike and at depth. Mineralization at Arnett is open in all directions.
