Calgary, Alberta – TheNewswire – March 15, 2023 - Ashley Gold Corp. (CSE:ASHL) (“Ashley” or the “Company”) is currently acquiring a high-resolution drone magnetic survey over the Tabor Lake Project. This survey will provide the detailed resolution needed for finalizing drill targets and orientations for the upcoming drill program. Following the acquisition of the Tabor/Santa Maria data, Pioneer Exploration will move on to acquire over the Alto-Gardnar and Howie Lake Projects. Fast track data is expected to be received for the Tabor project by the end of March.
“This is an important milestone for the Tabor project as it will be the first new data acquired over the Tabor Shaft since the 1980’s.” said Darcy Christian, Ashley’s CEO. “The data will help us understand the structural orientation at Tabor for drill permitting and potentially define the source of the gold mineralization in the area.”
