LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Jul 23, 2013) - Rimrock Gold Corp., a Nevada corporation, (the "Company") (OTCQB: RMRK) is pleased to announce that it has identified and selected five new drill sites for drilling on the Company's wholly-owned Rimrock gold-silver project in Elko County, Nevada. The Rimrock project is strategically located in a highly mineralized epithermal gold-silver district, 7 Km northwest of Rodeo Creek Gold's Hollister mine, and 16 Km southeast of Newmont's Midas mine.
The new drill sites were defined through interpretation of geological, geochemical, and geophysical data collected on the project by various former property owners and option-holders over the past 35 years. The Company's management team has identified several mineralization targets along the IC Fault system, including the large Dilation Zone located between two well-defined faults representing a 100 meter wide drill target area. The Company plans to drill-test the area of convergence of these two faults at the northern and southern ends of the Dilation Zone. The Rimrock project has never been drill-tested specifically for the Midas-style gold-silver mineralization envisioned by the Company's management. Rock samples from a recently completed surface sampling program at the project show anomalous values of several indicator metals typically associated with Midas-Hollister gold deposits, including arsenic and selenium.
Overall, the Company's comprehensive database for the Rimrock project provides a much clearer basis for defining the presence, geometry, and depth extensions of north-south trending structures that contain opalite-cinnabar (mercury sulfide) mineralization. The Company is planning to drill these initial targets, upon posting the requisite reclamation bond and receiving the drill-permit from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.
"We have made significant progress at Rimrock in a very short period of time. This is a very exciting time for the Company and we are looking forward to advancing the property to the next stage," stated President and CEO Jordan Starkman.
