Freeman Confirms and Expands Historical Gold Mineralization, Completes 7,000 Metres of Diamond Drilling at Lemhi

Freeman Gold Corp. has provided an update on its 100-per-cent-owned Lemhi gold project, located in Idaho, United States.

Two diamond drill rigs completed 35 cored drill holes totaling 7,149 m. The drilling campaign confirmed the presence of numerous structurally controlled stacked, flat lying gold mineralized horizons initially identified by 70,196 meters of historical drilling conducted between 1984 and 2012. Detailed geological logging of the new core has also identified mineralized zones of varying thicknesses, ranging from 10 to over 100 metres similar to that found in previous historic drilling and drill sections. Core samples have been sent to ALS Minerals Division, Vancouver, B.C., and results are expected in the next 4 to 8 weeks. To date, 1,805 drill core and rock grab samples and 358 soil samples have arrived at ALS Minerals Division, Vancouver, BC. ALS is currently quoting turn-around times exceeding 60 days for analytical services. An additional 275 soil samples were sent to SGS Canada Inc., Burnaby, B.C.

Will Randall, President & CEO, commented: “During the execution of our first 5,000 metre twin and infill diamond drill program it became clear that historically defined zones have greater continuity than expected. As a result, we extended our Phase 1 diamond drill campaign to include additional infill and step out holes designed to test zones beyond historical limits. We are extremely pleased with this initial drill program, both the execution in challenging times as well as the extent and thickness of the flat lying mineralized structures. We have successfully confirmed and extended the presence of these stacked mineralized structures over a 600 x 700 metre area from surface down to over 260 metres deep. We look forward to updating shareholders as assay results become available.”
