VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / August 10, 2022 / Relevant Gold Corp. (the “Company” or “Relevant Gold“) (CSE:RGC) today announced that it has filed its non-offering prospectus (the “Prospectus“) with the British Columbia Securities Commission and has received approval to list the Company’s common shares (the “Common Shares“) on the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE). The Prospectus was filed to qualify the distribution of the Common Shares previously issued by the Company. No securities were sold and no proceeds were raised pursuant to the Prospectus. Relevant Gold’s common shares are expected to begin trading on August 11, 2022, under the symbol “RGC“.
In March 2022, the Company completed a non-brokered private placement financing that raised gross proceeds of $5.703M. Relevant Gold issued 16,293,862 common shares at $0.35CAD pursuant to the private placement.
“Relevant Gold is strongly positioned as we head into the exploration season and we are excited about the opportunities before us,” said Relevant Gold CEO Rob Bergmann. “The capital we raised this spring gave us the runway we needed to secure a drilling contractor and advance our flagship asset, Golden Buffalo, to the point of commencing drilling in July. On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank our shareholders for their continued support as we make the transition from private to public company and begin drilling exploration of our first Wyoming asset.”
Exploration Commences at Golden Buffalo
The Company is using capital raised during the private placement to advance drilling exploration at its flagship Golden Buffalo project. As this is the first ever exploratory drilling work conducted at Golden Buffalo, the Company aims to test known surface anomalies at depth and begin to define the subsurface structural architecture and geology.
Drill Program Highlights:
- 4,000 -5,000 meters of oriented diamond core drilling is planned at Golden Buffalo.
- Major Drilling was selected as the drilling contractor and drilling commenced July 15, 2022.
- Drilling will focus on the target area that has shown bonanza grade gold at surface.
- The initial drilling is designed to drill multiple holes from initial priority pads to understand the subsurface geology, alteration, and structural controls.
- A total of 31 drill pads have been permitted by the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and a reclamation bond has been posted.
- Drilling will primarily utilize HQ core, but PQ core samples may be collected in some instances.
- Drill core samples will be sent to ALS for fire assays and geochemical analysis.
“At Golden Buffalo we have coarse visible gold at surface, with rock-chip sample assays returning over 5 ounces per ton gold (“oz/t Au”),” said Relevant Gold Chief Exploration Officer Brian Lentz. “While Wyoming has seen significant historical mining, it is relatively underexplored and has not seen modern exploration like we are conducting at Golden Buffalo. We’re very excited to be testing our Abitibi thesis at depth.”

Exploration Approach and Thesis of Abitibi Connection
Gold mineralization of the Abitibi gold belts in the Superior Province, Canada occurred in Archean age rocks between 2.7 – 2.2 billion years ago. The Wyoming Province has similar age Archean rocks and structural terrain, but has seen little modern exploration compared to the Superior Province. Relevant Gold believes that modern-day Wyoming may have been connected to the Abitibi at the time of gold mineralization, and later rifted apart and rotated before settling in its current location. Based on this theory, the Company believes a direct comparison with the Superior Province provides a targeting model for discovering new, large-scale deposits in Wyoming. The first test of this exploration thesis is underway at Golden Buffalo.
