Toronto, Ontario, March 11th, 2021 (NEWSFILE) – Ready Set Gold Corp. (“Ready Set Gold” or the “Company”) (CSE: RDY) (FWB: 0MZ) is pleased to provide an update on the Company’s portfolio of properties with regards to its Hemlo Eastern Flanks Gold project (“Hemlo Eastern Flanks”).
The Hemlo Eastern Flanks is ideally located south-east of the Company’s flagship property, the Northshore Gold project and is within the gold producing Hemlo Camp, on-trend from the Hemlo gold deposit, and located on the Hemlo/Schreiber Greenstone Belt of Ontario. The 4,456-hectare project consists of two claim blocks (see illustration #1). The western border of the northern claim block lies just 25km from the Hemlo Mine and surrounds MetalCorp’s claims which were the subject of a favourable Joint Venture arrangement (See Metal Corps Release Nov. 20th, 2020) with Barrick Gold (TSX.ABX) in late 2020. Whereby MetalCorp (MTC.V) received a non-refundable cash payment of $3 million CAD and a work commitment totalling $4.5 million over a three-year period to earn an 80% stake in the project.
A new compilation and interpretation completed by Ready Set Gold’s Geological Team on the Hemlo Eastern Flanks North claim has identified a prospective trend that extends from the Hemlo Deposit onto the project area. This favourable trend is defined by historical geological mapping that has been completed in the area and is supported by a strong lineation within the government magnetic data. The compilation has also identified that where the trend enters the Hemlo Eastern Flanks North, the prospective rock suite appears to be intensely folded and structurally complex, which is a favourable setting for the potential of a large-scale gold system.
“It is a very encouraging start to our evaluation work on the large and prospective Hemlo Eastern Flanks property. Not only has our initial compilation identified a very significant geological and structural trend with supporting geophysics, it is also showing us that the rock-type and geological environment is very similar to that at The Hemlo Mine, where there is a lot of structural complexity adjacent to the Cedar Lake Pluton. This new compilation now gives us a more focused early-stage exploration model to start advancing the project and generating drill-ready targets,” stated Brad Lazich, Ready Set Gold Corp’s VP of Exploration.
Ready Set Gold is preparing for an initial reconnaissance exploration program of the claims. This exploration is expected to include a detailed airborne and or ground magnetic survey followed by surface mapping, sampling, and a soil survey.
Ready Set Gold Corp, CEO & Director, Christian Scovenna comments; “While the Company’s focus remains on our flagship property at our Northshore Gold project, we are extremely encouraged by the new compilation and interpretation on this property. It demonstrates, to our shareholders that the Management and Directors of the Company are rapidly unlocking shareholder value and additional upside. We look forward to the end of Q2 or early Q3 of this year to advancing the Hemlo Eastern Flanks Project”.
Brad Lazich, P.Geo (ON), VP Exploration of Ready Set Gold Corp, and a Qualified Person as defined in National Instrument 43-101, Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects, has approved the scientific and technical disclosure in this news release.

Such forward looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause Ready Set Gold’s actual results, performance or achievements, or developments in the industry to differ materially from the anticipated results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.
