Michael G. Allen, President and CEO of StrikePoint Gold said, "After acquiring the Cuprite Gold Project in early 2023, we've added significant value to the project. We have more than doubled the footprint of the property itself and completed comprehensive geophysical and geological mapping programs on the property.

The program is planned approximately 5,000 meters, and will be targeting ring structures of the Stonewall Caldera in the heart of a 2.6 square kilometer mercury in soil anomaly defined by the Company's previous work as announced on September 26, 2023. The drilling will be completed by Envirotech Drilling ("Envirotech") of Winnemucca, Nevada, a rig will be available in late February, 2024.
The Company has mobilized Zonge Geophysics of Tuscon, Arizona to the Cuprite Gold Project for completion of an additional 5-kilometers of induced polarization ("IP") surveying. Previous IP surveys have identified a 6-kilometer-long North-South structural corridor at the heart of a 2.6 square kilometer mercury in soil anomaly. Detailed mapping by the Company identified East-West faulting extending towards the North-South structural corridor. The second phase of IP is designed to study the intersection of the two sets of structures as a potential high priority drill target, allowing for further refinement of the planned drilling.
