Grande Portage Commences Drilling With Second Rig At Herbert Gold Project

Grande Portage Resources (TSXV: GPG) this morning has seen its second drill rig arrive at its flagship Herbert Gold project in southeastern Alaska. The arrival of a second rig relates to the firms prior announcement of stepping up drilling operations.

The second rig has been added to the program as part of the firms currently ongoing 8,000 metre drill program at the property. The company is focusing on the Goat, Deep Trench and Main veins primarily under the current program, with additional drilling set to target the Floyd, Elusive, Sleeping Giant and Ridge veins also scheduled.

The second drill rig is reportedly operating on Pad Q, where it will test the Main, Goat and Sleeping Giant veins. The first rig that was on site meanwhile is testing the eastern extensions of the Goat vein, with it soon moving to focus on the Main vein where it will focus on deep drilling.

The program is being viewed as an extension of last years program, as it looks to expand mineralization via a total of nine separate platforms from which it will conduct drilling on a total of 25 holes.

Grande Portage Resources last traded at $0.55 on the TSX Venture.
