Reno, NV, May 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
Dakota Territory Resource Corp (OTCQB: DTRC) ("Dakota Territory" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has entered into a new five-year Lease With Option to Purchase Agreement for the Squaw and Rubber Neck Lodes that comprise Mineral Survey 1706 in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Mineral Survey 1706 is a key component of the Company’s overall Homestake Paleoplacer Property position, which currently consists of a total of 365 mineral acres covering approximately 1,750 meters of the channel trend extending northward from the Dakota Territory’s past-producing Gustin, Minerva and Deadbroke Mines.
The Homestake Paleoplacer Channel is believed to have carried approximately 10 million ounces of gold away from exposure of the lode source at the site of the Homestake Gold Mine. In the 1980’s and 1990’s, Homestake Mining Company undertook drill programs that successfully located the buried fossil placer approximately 550 meters north of the Deadbroke Mine, the last producing mine on the channel trend at the point that the channel disappeared under the cover of younger sedimentary and igneous rock formations.
The Channel Extension (CE) drill program cut a total of 5,726 meters from 27 drill holes, including CE 12A and CE 16, both of which were collared and drilled on Mineral Survey 1706. Drill hole CE 16 intersected 3 meters of flat lying quartz-pebble conglomerate of the basal Deadwood Formation assaying 5.85 grams per ton gold at a depth 164 meters below the surface. Additionally, drill hole CE12A intersected 2 meters of Deadwood Formation assaying 8.46 grams per ton gold at a depth of 192 meters below the surface.
