Newrange Gold Corp (CVE:NRG) (OTCQB:NRGOF) has said it is set to get drilling again at its flagship Pamlico project in Nevada, USA, starting on Thursday, May 28, and a drilling contractor has been mobilized.

The initial part of the program will comprise between around 3,000 and 3,500 meters (m) of drilling in 30-35 holes, primarily along Pamlico Ridge, Newrange said, adding that up to 10,000 m was expected to be drilled in the next few months.

Reverse circulation (RC) drilling will be used as the holes will be relatively shallow, the group noted, and it will be designed to test the continuity of near-surface gold mineralization around and between the historic workings of the Pamlico, Gold Bar and Good Hope mines.

The drill crew will be working under a strict coronavirus (COVID-19) protocol, both on and off-site, Newrange added.

"We have made significant progress in our understanding of the geological setting at Pamlico since our last drilling campaign in 2018 and we are keen to test some of the new ideas that have come out of that work," Robert Archer, Newrange's CEO told investors in a statement.

"The combination of underground mapping and sampling with the Induced Polarization (IP) geophysics has allowed us to better target our drilling. We have seen a good correlation between the IP and known gold-pyrite mineralization, which bodes well for testing the new targets across the 3 kilometer-wide area of immediate interest within the much larger Pamlico property," he added.

Applications have been submitted for permitting the rest of the drill program and once that is received and roadwork completed, drilling will continue with a combination of RC and diamond drilling in new target areas, the group said.
