Ridgeline Minerals Commences Phase II Drill Program at the Selena Oxide Gold-Silver Project

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – August 12, 2020) –  Ridgeline Minerals Corp. (“Ridgeline” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that it has mobilized a reverse circulation (RC) drill rig to its Selena project located in White Pine County, Nevada (NV). The Phase II drill program (1,000m) will follow up on positive trenching and drilling results from the Phase I exploration program completed in the second quarter of 2020 (Figure 1.0). Drilling will target oxide gold-silver mineralization under shallow cover at the Chinchilla and Juniper targets (Figure 2.0).

Chad Peters, Ridgeline’s President and CEO commented, “Our technical team has done an incredible job advancing the Selena project over the past four months culminating in a successful Phase I exploration program. Both the Chinchilla and Juniper targets exhibit exceptional potential to host shallow, oxide gold-silver mineralization and we are excited to test both targets in our Phase II drill program.”

Phase I Highlights:

Chinchilla Target

  • Reverse circulation (RC) hole SE20-002 intersected 9.1m @ 0.57 grams per tonne Gold (g/t Au), 7.03 grams per tonne Silver (g/t Ag) starting at 22.9m
  • RC hole SE20-004 intersected 4.6m @ 0.42 g/t Au, 53.7 g/t Ag starting at 16.8m
  • See Table 1.0 below for further information

Juniper Target

  • High-grade surface rock chip values up to 16.5 g/t Au, 461 g/t Ag and 5.4 g/t Au, 1,532 g/t Ag in jasperoid breccia within the Pilot Shale and Guilmette Limestone target horizons
  • Ridgeline team collected 91 surface rock chip samples throughout the Juniper target area with values ranging from 0.001 g/t Au and <0.2 g/t Ag to 16.5 g/t Au and 1,532 g/t Ag
    • The average grade of all 91 samples taken across the Juniper target is 0.47 g/t Au and 45.9 g/t Ag

Selena Project

Selena is located in White Pine County NV, approximately 64 kilometers (km) north of the town of Ely, NV and 12 km southeast of the Kinross owned and operated Bald Mountain Mine. The 100% owned property comprises 26km² of highly prospective ground that has seen limited exploration activity over the past twenty years. The Ridgeline team has identified multiple prospective exploration targets across the project area with the high-priority Chinchilla and Juniper targets to be tested in August 2020.
