Toronto, ON – August 1, 2019 – Rockcliff Metals Corporation (“Rockcliff” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: RCLF) (FRANKFURT: RO0, WKN: A2H60G) is pleased to announce that drill contracts have been signed and several properties are now permitted for drilling. The 100,000 metre drill program will commence in August and continue non-stop to December of 2020. Rockcliff is well-funded, and is now the largest development and exploration junior landholder in the Flin Flon-Snow Lake greenstone belt, the largest Paleoproterozoic VMS (“Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide”) district (copper, gold, zinc, silver) in the world.
Rockcliff’s President and CEO Alistair Ross commented: “We look forward to the start of the largest drill program in Rockcliff’s history. The objectives of this very large drill program are to expand existing resources at several of our deposits, assist in advancing several of our key projects through the pre-feasibility phase as well as to explore for significant new grass roots discoveries on our very prospective land position. The success of the drill program will be an integral part of Rockcliff’s growth strategy as we work to transition the company into Manitoba’s next mining company.”
CYR Drilling International Ltd. from Winnipeg, Manitoba and Westcore Drilling Limited from Snow Lake, Manitoba were awarded drilling contracts by the Company.
Initial drilling will commence on the Company’s Rail and Bur properties, followed by drilling on its Talbot and Tower properties located south of the main Snow Lake mining camp. A minimum of five drills will be deployed in August to carry out this phase of the drill program. This phase of the drill program will total approximately 50,000 metres and is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2019. Between the start of drilling next month and the end of 2020, drilling is also planned on numerous grass roots targets and at least 8 other properties currently held by the Company that are known to host VMS mineralization.
