StoneShield previously announced its exploration plans over the next year for the Goldtooth project (see StoneShield news release of February 27 th, 2012). In the Jackpot claim block, located to the north of the Briggs Mine, Company geologists have recommended a 30 kilometer Ground Magnetic Survey over the northern block to be performed in conjunction with a 30 kilometer Gradient Array Induced Polarization program to outline new drill targets. A minimum 4,500 meters of reverse circulation drilling is planned to test for gold mineralization at depth in the northern block. Prior drilling in the southern portion of the Jackpot claim block saw half of the historic drill holes intercept significant gold mineralization, including 20 meters of 2.33 g/t gold, 15 meters of 1.6 g/t gold and 24 meters of 1.16 g/t gold and 1.5 meters of 18.4 g/t gold.
