(Vancouver, May 29, 2020) – Rokmaster Resources Corp. (“Rokmaster” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has opened up the access road to its Revel Ridge Project site where work has commenced on several fronts;
Phase 1 Core Drilling Preparation:
- Road cleanup to prepare for hauling of generators, fuel, underground equipment, compressors, fans and supplies.
- Ongoing geological modelling and drill target selection by Rokmaster’s geological consulting team (including Oliver Geoscience International Ltd. and Tripoint Geological Services Ltd.) for more than 5,000 meters of Phase 1 core drilling by Hy-Tech Drilling Ltd. of Smithers, B.C.
- Geotechnical and safety inspections of underground access and proposed drill stations.
- Environmental site inspection and inventory.
- Initiate rehabilitation of office, workshop, first aid facility, fuel, water and power systems.
- Initiate ground assessment of the 44 other known Au-Ag occurrences over the 7-8 km planer deformation structure hosting the Main Zone.
- Micon International Limited is making steady engineering progress on updating the historical Preliminary Economic Assessment (“PEA”) Technical Report with considerable focus on mining methods, mining rates and processing options in addition to the environmental considerations.
- Metallurgical upgrade work and a marketing study is underway to provide a high-grade pyrite-arsenopyrite-gold sulphide concentrate for sale to off-shore customers.
Rokmaster looks forward to working with the local communities and the Province of B.C. in initiating employment and supplier opportunities at the Revel Ridge Project. The initial $3 million drill program is hoped to commence upon receipt of permits and necessary approvals, expected within 6-7 weeks.
All COVID–19 procedures and protocols, reflecting guidance from the government and provincial health authorities, are in place to provide worker safety on or off site.
