Pacton Gold Inc.(TSX-V:PAC) is pleased to announce that the Company has commenced drilling at its Tully West Gold Property. The initial focused diamond drill program will be comprised of up to 1,200 meters to test a previous gold zone drilled by SGX Resources Inc. in 2013 (SGX Resources Inc., press release, September 26, 2013), which intersected 36.7 g/t Au (uncut) over 6.3 meters. A follow-up, larger scale drill program will be planned based on the results of the current exploration program.
Dominic Verdejo, President and CEO of Pacton commented, “Our initial drill program is focused to quickly test a previous gold zone that yielded a high-grade intersection of 36.7 g/t gold over 6.3 meters drilled by SGX Resources Inc. in 2013. The program, though small in the number of holes and meters, will assist our technical team in validating the high-grade potential of the Property, and the continuity of the mineralized system. Our in-depth technical knowledge of the Tully West Gold Project provides an advantage of maximizing the potential to demonstrate the high prospectivity for additional mineralized gold zones.”
