WINNIPEG, MANITOBA / ACCESSWIRE / August 6, 2020 / Winston Gold Corp. ("Winston Gold" or the "Corporation") (CSE:WGC)(OTCQB:WGMCF) is pleased to announce that underground development work has reached the Parallel Vein system at its Winston Gold Property near Helena, Montana.
Winston now intends to commence drifting along the Parallel vein system with two headings (east and west). Initial mining rates for these drifts will vary as the Company determines the most cost effective and efficient mining and blasting procedures.
Winston will continue to stockpile mineralized material for a bulk sample that will be processed at the company's Paradine Mill facility. The Mill, located in Radersburg Montana, is just 35 miles by paved road from the project. The commissioning of the mill is proceeding as anticipated and is currently 75% completed.
"We are very pleased with our progress to date," commented Murray Nye, CEO and Director of Winston Gold Mines. "During this unprecedented period, the health and safety of our workforce and local community remains our number one concern. Winston Gold takes pride in the fact that its mining team completed the extension safely amid the Covid pandemic using the best available health protocols."
In early May, the Carrabba tunnel intersected the upper level workings of the historical Custer Gold Mine. The 900 ft-long (274 metre) Carrabba access tunnel broke though into an old cross-cut tunnel that connected the upper level of the historical Custer workings with the upper level development of the Block 93 Vein system.
In this section of the Custer mine, the old workings proved to be too unstable. With safety in mind, Winston's Management decided to extend the Carrabba tunnel 228 ft (70 metres) further west between the Block 93 and Parallel Veins. A north trending crosscut was then developed for a distance of 20 ft (6 metres) to reach the Parallel vein system. This crosscut will be extended an additional 20 ft. to access the near-surface unmined portions of the Custer Vein. Once the Custer vein is reached drifting will commence on two headings similar to the Parallel Vein.
