Pilot Gold startet 20.000 Bohrmeter-Programm auf TV Tower mit Partner Teck Resources

Pilot Gold (TSX:PLG) startet das heiß erwartete 2015er Explorations- & Drilling-Programm auf TV Tower in der Türkei, welches in einem aktiven Joint-Venture (60/40) mit dem Rohstoffgiganten Teck Resources (NYE:TCK) exploriert und weiterentwickelt wird..

Pilot Gold Launches 20,000 Metre Drill Program at TV Tower

2015 Program to Focus on District Scale Potential
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - June 17, 2015) - Pilot Gold Inc. (TSX:PLG) ("Pilot Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to report the start of drilling at the Company's 60%-owned TV Tower property in northwestern Turkey. Drilling started on June 13, and will be focused on advancing and delineating district scale copper-gold porphyry systems. A budget of $6.0 million with over 20,000 metres of diamond drilling is planned and funded pro-rata through a joint venture between Pilot Gold (60%) and Teck Madencilik Sanayi Ticaret A.S. (40%), a Turkish subsidiary of Teck Resources Limited ("Teck").
"2014 saw tremendous success at TV Tower with the discovery of the Valley and Columbaz porphyries and growth of the mineralized footprint at the Hilltop porphyry," said Matt Lennox-King, President and CEO of Pilot Gold. "We believe these discoveries are only the first porphyries at TV Tower and we remain focused on driving district scale growth through additional discoveries in this rapidly evolving mineral belt. With our PEA-stage Halilaga copper-gold project 15 km away, we see tremendous potential for continued growth and consolidation across the district."
The 2015 program is designed to build on the discovery of the Valley porphyry, focused on expanding the footprint of mineralization and testing high priority step out targets. The Company has recently completed preliminary metallurgical testing on material from the Valley porphyry, and will continue with property-wide environmental baseline studies and comprehensive CSR programs.
Of particular focus in 2015 is the K2 zone which hosts the Valley and Hilltop copper-gold porphyries and extensive oxide gold potential. Targets at K2 are marked by outcropping high grades in gold and copper, on a large (1.5km long) copper-in-soil footprint. Recent geophysical studies revealed a large IP target immediately southeast and on trend with the Valley discovery. Limited exploration drilling has been completed at K2 but initial 2014 results demonstrate the potential for a significant mineralized endowment.

About TV Tower:
TV Tower encompasses 92 square kilometres in the heart of an emerging mineral district in northwest Turkey. It contains a large number of targets ranging from high- and low-sulphidation epithermal gold-silver to porphyry gold-copper. Pilot Gold has advanced five significant gold, silver and copper-gold discoveries on the project over the past four years. The property hosts numerous additional untested gold and copper targets.
The project has an extensive road network and targets to date all lie on land administered by Turkey's Ministry of Forestry. The project is road-accessible and is located in a region featuring advanced stage gold and copper-gold projects, numerous open pit coal, quartz and clay mines, ceramics factories and a major power plant. It is located immediately west of the Kirazli gold project (Alamos Gold) and approximately 15 kilometres northwest of the Halilaga copper-gold project (Teck/Pilot Gold)..
