Vancouver, B.C. – June 3, 2020 – Strategic Metals Ltd. (TSX-V: SMD) ("Strategic") is pleased to announce exploration plans for 2020.
The bulk of Strategic's 2020 exploration effort will focus on its Mt. Hinton property, a high grade gold and silver project located in the Keno Hill Mining District of central Yukon. Bonanza grade gold values of up to 2,340 g/t Au were discovered at Mt. Hinton by Strategic in 2019. Follow-up work in 2019 identified vein mineralization grading 202 g/t gold and 2020 g/t silver approximately 120 m along strike from the original discovery. Numerous other high grade showings elsewhere on the property were also identified during the 2019 program and were described in news releases dated Aug. 21, Sept. 9, and Nov. 18, 2019.
The 2020 work program at the Mt. Hinton property will consist of excavator trenching and road construction along with detailed mapping and prospecting is scheduled to begin in mid-June. An estimated 7,000 m of drilling will follow the initial work.
In addition to Mt. Hinton, detailed mapping and geochemical sampling will be done at 3 of Strategic's other, highly prospective precious metals projects, with the objective of preparing those targets for future drilling.
