Toronto, CANADA, July 29, 2020 – Argo Gold Inc. (“Argo Gold” or the “Company”) (CSE: ARQ) has commenced exploration at its Uchi Gold Project located 70 kilometres east of Red Lake, Ontario. Argo Gold’s first drill program intersected 132 g/t Au over 1.8 metres at the high-grade Woco Vein and 34.4 g/t Au over 0.5 metres at the Northgate Shear Zone. The Woco Vein and the Northgate Shear Zone are 2 kilometres apart on a 5 kilometre mineralized trend that is considered highly prospective. The Summer 2019 Biogeochem Survey covered the main mineralized trend and identified multiple high priority anomalies proximal to the high-grade Woco vein and also identified additional new anomalies along the 5 kilometre strike length of the main mineralized trend; (Argo Gold PR, October 28 2019). West of the main mineralized trend, another mineralized trend – the HST Zone and the Raingold vein system – was sampled in the Summer 2019 field program and returned anomalous gold assays over 600 metres of strike length. One of the continuous chips of five samples assayed 14.5 g/t Au across 2.6 metres at Raingold. (Argo Gold PR, November 6 2019).
Argo Gold has commenced field work and is carrying out mechanical stripping and hydraulic washing at areas of known high-grade gold mineralization and identified anomalies for geological and structural mapping for a planned follow-on Summer 2020 drill program.
Bill Kerr, P.Geo, Exploration Geologist of Argo Gold, is the Qualified Person who assumes responsibility for the technical disclosures in this news release.
