Whitehorse Gold (WHG) has completed its 2021 exploration and drill program at the Skukum Gold Project.

In total, the company completed 16,554 metres of diamond drilling in 44 holes across the property. Drilling was focused at the Skukum Creek, Mt. Skukum, and Goddell deposits.

Drilling was comprised primarily of step-out and infill holes, as well as exploration and technical holes.

The program included a property-wide airborne geophysics survey, in addition to surface mapping and sampling targeting key areas of interest on the project.

Results from 7 of the 44 drill holes have been received so far, and additional results will continue to flow in over the upcoming months and the company looks forward to releasing assays as they are received.

Kevin Weston, CEO of Whitehorse Gold, commented on the completed program.

“These initial results have shown the significant resource upgrade and expansion potential on our high-grade gold deposits, and we look forward to announcing results from the remaining 37 holes over the coming months,” he said.

“We are excited,” added Mr. Weston, “at the discovery and resource expansion opportunity on the project as we evaluate a potential development path on this past producing high-grade gold camp.”

Whitehorse Gold is a responsible mineral exploration and development company focused on its 170-square-kilometre project located in southern Yukon.

The project hosts the advanced-stage Skukum Creek and Goddell deposits and the formerly producing Mt. Skukum high-grade gold mine, all of which remain open for expansion, plus additional untested mineralized occurrences.

Shares in Whitehorse Gold (WHG) are up 1.82 per cent, trading at $0.56 per share as of 3:56 pm ET.
