Kingston, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – June 6, 2023) – Delta Resources Limited (TSXV: DLTA) (OTC Pink: DTARF) (FSE: 6GO1) (“Delta” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce the start of a 20,000 metre drill program at the Delta-1 Gold project, 50 kilometres west of Thunder-Bay, Ontario. Delta will be mobilizing a second drill rig to further accelerate the drill campaign.
This new drilling program is in addition to the 5,000 metre program previously announced on April 24, 2023 which is currently underway and nearing completion.
Both programs are designed to expand the current mineralized zone along strike and at depth, while testing property-scale targets with similar geological and geophysical signatures as the Eureka Gold Zone.
André Tessier, President and CEO commented:”This is a very exciting time at Delta and at the Delta-1 Property. Delta’s recent closing of a $10M bought deal financing has provided us with the resources needed to further expand the gold zone while thoroughly exploring the property at large, where many exploration targets remain untested. We anticipate getting the initial results from our current drilling program shortly and look forward to the many anticipated results to come with this accelerated program.”
