CALGARY, AB / ACCESSWIRE / July 21, 2020 / Kestrel Gold Inc. (the “Corporation“) (TSXV:KGC) is pleased to announce the receipt of a YMEP Target Evaluation grant to help support its 2020 exploration program on the King Solomon Dome Project (“KSD”). Kestrel has a Class 3 Land Use Permit in place for KSD, allowing for various exploration activities including soil sampling, trenching and drilling. Preliminary fieldwork will commence prior to the end of July with a view towards defining targets for a drill test program this fall or next summer pending raising additional capital.
Under YMEP the Yukon government provides successful grant applicants with funding to support mineral exploration activities. Kestrel’s application included exploration expenditures of $53,779 which will be reimbursed by the Yukon government at a rate of 60% of expenditures to a maximum of $32,267. Fieldwork will consist of prospecting and surface sampling of existing gold and silver soil anomalies with peak values of 4,000 ppb gold and 30.2 g/t silver. Results of this program will help guide a follow up excavator trenching and rock sampling program.
