Completion of the private placement offerings remain subject to acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange. All securities issued pursuant to the private placements are subject to a statutory hold period of four months plus a day from the date of issuance in accordance with applicable securities legislation.  Finder’s fees may be payable to qualified parties.

Yukon 2019 Exploration Program

The objective of the 2019 program will be to confirm gold grade continuity and target potential in preparation towards a maiden inferred resource estimate.

Building on the successful 2018 exploration campaign, the Company plans a first phase program of road building and trenching. The Company plans to double the current 500 metres to 1,000 metres of direct road access along strike of the 25m-50m wide Golden Culvert gold mineralized structural corridor.

The road construction will facilitate trenching to expose the two main gold-bearing structures across 20 trenches at approximate 50 metre intervals. 

Additionally geological mapping, rock geochemistry and prospecting further along strike to 1.5km will be performed. 

The Phase 1 program will serve to guide a second phase diamond drilling program to extend the strike length coverage from 450 metres currently to a minimum one kilometre of the 24-kilometre strike length at Golden Culvert. The objective of the program will be to prepare for a maiden NI 43-101 inferred resource estimate.

Stratabound President and CEO R. Kim Tyler commented, “As previously stated, we have had significant success with our initial trenching and drilling at Golden Culvert in 2018. We have done so by successfully meeting the required objectives on plan, on time, and under budget despite the harsh market conditions. The gold prospectivity in the area is excellent and the results speak for themselves. Given the direct year-round road access to the work site and the preparation work done last year, this project remains among the high quality yet lowest cost mineral exploration projects anywhere amongst our peers working near or above the same geographical latitudes. We remain optimistic that our planned 2019 program will build upon last year’s success and we remain extremely confident that the Golden Culvert project will generate results worthy of the investment.”
