Message: St. Andrews Goldfields Starts Drill Program on Optioned Plato Gold Claims
TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 28, 2011) -
NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION IN THE UNITED STATES.
Plato Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:PGC) ("Plato") an exploration company with a portfolio of properties in the prolific gold mining camps of Northern Ontario, Northern Quebec, and Santa Cruz (Argentina), is pleased to announce that St Andrew Goldfields Ltd. has commenced a 1,000-1,500 metre initial surface drilling program with 4-5 holes on Plato's Holloway Property.
The drilling will occur along the western margin of Plato's property, which is located approximately 3 kilometres to the east of the Holloway and Holt mines and in close proximity to St. Andrew's Ghost and Deep Thunder zones. The drilling will initially follow-up on a relatively shallow, historical hole, namely N85-6, drilled in 1985 that returned 64.8 g/t Au over 0.4 metres, as reported in the NI 43-101 compliant technical report by Watts, Griffis and McOuat Limited, dated January 28, 2004.
Drilling at other prospective targets on the Holloway Property will be assessed and may be the focus of exploration later in the year.
"I am pleased to see the drill program starting on Holloway Property," said Anthony J. Cohen, President and CEO. "With our drill program at Nordeau East started earlier this month (see February 1, 2011 press release) and St. Andrew Goldfields starting work in the Timmins Gold Camp, we look forward to positive results in the months ahead. As well, we hope to have further announcements on our Lolita Project in Santa Cruz, Argentina soon."
