Winston Gold Corp. Successfully Drills Five Geotech Holes


WINNIPEG, Manitoba, Aug. 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Winston Gold Corp. ("Winston Gold" or the "Corporation") (CSE:WGC) (OTCQB:WGMCF) is pleased to announce that the Company has successfully drilled five holes at the proposed location of the new underground portal.  These holes were designed to locate old workings, if any, and determine the condition of the rock along its path for ground support purposes.

The drill holes determined that the first 80 ft. (24.4 metres) of the proposed portal are characterized by moderately fractured rock with no major faults or unsupportable ground.  Traditional ground support measures such as bolts, metal strips, and screens will be enough for support.

Beyond that point and up to about 450 ft. (137 metres) along the planned route of the portal, the rock is very solid with only occasional small faults.  The current portal is anticipated to be 900 ft (274 metres) long and enable access to the Block 93 and Parallel vein systems.

"This is another important step forward on the path to commencing a test mining operation at the historic Winston Gold Mine," commented Murray Nye, CEO of Winston Gold Corp.
