VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Goldstrike Resources Ltd. (GSR.V) is pleased to report that its partner, Newmont Mining Corporation, has successfully completed the 2018 exploration program at the Plateau property in Canada’s Yukon Territory. The program represented the most comprehensive exploration work to date at Plateau. The recently completed program included 7,791 meters of diamond drilling with 2,880 core samples sent for assay.  Other ground work included five kilometers of geophysical surveys and collection of 310 prospecting rock samples.  Additionally, 1,381 soil samples from new prospective areas were collected and will be analysed with Newmont’s proprietary technologies. This program has met the goals established by the company and Newmont’s team.

Camp and dock facilities at the Goldstack Lake camp were also expanded to house up to 50 personnel. This new infrastructure can accommodate larger exploration programs and increased float plane traffic for years to come.

Results will be released when all assays and all other data have been received, compiled and interpreted by Goldstrike and Newmont .

Message from Terrence E. King, President and CEO:

“It has been a pleasure for our team to work with Newmont on the 2018 program. The Plateau property is a district scale system and Newmont is a world-class partner with the financial strength, proprietary technology, and depth of experience needed to realize the full value of such an extensive system. We look forward to reporting the results and planning the program for the 2019 field season.”
