Blackrock Gold Corp (CVE:BRC) has kicked off this year's exploration at the Silver Cloud project in Elko County, Nevada. 

A gravity survey began in late February and will be completed this week, the firm said, with reprocessing and interpretation completed this month. 

A full reinterpretation is expected in late March to early April.

Meanwhile, drilling will start next week aimed at following up on the 8.32 g/t gold intercept returned in one hole and the 0.28 g/t gold and 8.6 g/t silver intercept from another, both drilled at the Northwest Canyon target last Fall.

The planned holes are intended to test the east-west structure down dip and extend the strike to the west, the firm added.

An induced polarization (IP) survey is earmarked to begin in May this year to test the response of drill-intersected sulfides and associated structures for drill targeting at the NE Veins target and adjacent to the Silver Cloud mercury mine.

"The company's 2019 drill program confirmed the east-west orientation of gold mineralization in Northwest Canyon," said Andrew Pollard, Blackrock's CEO.

Overall strike length of 250m

He said the firm now had an overall strike length of 250 metres confirmed, of which the initial focus of the 2020 exploration program will be to expand upon.

"Downhole geophysical surveys illustrate that gold zones are associated with east-west oriented veins and fractures.

"With strike and dip data on the mineralized structure in-hand, crews are being mobilized to site next week to drill the dip extension to test for high-grade gold and silver within the contemplated boiling zone at depth of this low-sulfidation epithermal system. From there, our plan is to extend the mineralized structure to the west."
