Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - July 6, 2020) - Precipitate Gold Corp. (TSXV: PRG) (OTCQB: PREIF) (the "Company" or "Precipitate") is pleased to announce that it has completed its previously announced soil sampling program and commenced a ground magnetics geophysical survey covering the Copey Hill Zone within the Company's 100% owned Ponton Project located approximately 25 kilometres ("km") due east of Barrick's Pueblo Viejo mining operation and the Company's Pueblo Grande project in the Dominican Republic.
Field crews have commenced a program of ground magnetic surveying over the multi-element geochemical anomaly identified at the Copey Hill zone. The magnetic survey will consist of a minimum 40 line km of ground magnetic surveying comprised of an estimated 20 north-south oriented parallel lines extending up to 2.0 kms in length, at both 50 and 100 metre line spacing. No prior geophysical survey has been conducted over this prospective emerging geochemical zone.
Jeffrey Wilson, Precipitate's President & CEO stated, "We are pleased to initiate the ground magnetic survey over the highly prospective Copey Hill zone as it will provide quality geophysical data for us to utilize in combination with the existing and pending geochemical data derived from the zone. This is the first ground magnetic survey to be conducted on the Ponton Property so we anticipate this newly generated geophysical data will prove useful in our ongoing effort to identify and prioritize specific new target areas. Of particular interest will be any magnetic-low anomalies coincident with elevated surface soil and rock geochemistry, where magnetic lows are potentially indicative of magnetite destruction, a common geophysical feature found within gold epithermal systems. This important geophysical work will advance the Copey Hill closer to a possible drill program."
The previously announced soil geochemical sampling program at Copey Hill (see news release dated June 9, 2020) has been completed. The soil sampling program is investigating the possible expansion of the existing Copey Hill multi-element geochemical anomaly to the east and northeast. More than 300 individual samples were collected in this program and submitted for laboratory analysis. Results will be reported as they become available.
