Ridgeline Minerals Completes Phase II Drill Program at the Selena Gold Project, Nevada

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – August 27, 2020) – Ridgeline Minerals Corp. (TSXV: RDG) (“Ridgeline” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that it has completed its Phase II drill program at the Selena Gold Project in White Pine County, Nevada. Ridgeline’s originally planned 1,000 meter (“m“) Phase II program was increased to 1,155m (Table 1.0) in order to further test the high-priority Juniper fault zone that has the potential to connect the Chinchilla and Juniper target areas over a 1.5 kilometer strike length (Figure 1.0). All drill samples have been submitted to Paragon Geochemical Labs for analysis and will be released upon receipt of all assays.

Mike Harp, Ridgeline’s Vice President, Exploration commented, “We are pleased with the completion of our Phase II scout drill program on schedule. We tested both the Chinchilla and Juniper targets at the favorable Pilot Shale contact and observed a strong correlation between alteration intensity and proximity to the northwest striking Juniper fault zone. As a result, we increased the scope of our program to test to the south of Chinchilla along the Juniper fault zone, which we interpret as a potential feeder fault connecting the Chinchilla and Juniper targets.”

Selena Project

Selena is in White Pine County Nevada, 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 is comprised of 26 square kilometers of highly prospective ground that has seen limited exploration activity over the past twenty years.
