Everyone knows it’s nice to receive kind words from a valued customer. Major Drilling America is no exception as it received kudos from Relevant Gold Corp. (CSE:RGC) upon the conclusion of a successful, nearly 3,500-meter, drill campaign. The Golden Buffalo project is the junior explorer’s flagship project in Wyoming, USA.

“Thanks again Major Drilling…for your hard work and dedication to completing this program safely!” Robert Bergmann, Relevant Gold Corp. CEO wrote on LinkedIn. “I want to thank the entire Relevant Gold team, contractors and consultants who helped make this exploration season a great success.”

Drilling for the 2022 Golden Buffalo drill program commenced on July 15 aiming to test known surface anomalies at depth and begin to define the subsurface structural architecture and geology.

Drilling teams quickly saw positive results in production, core recovery and safety throughout the oriented diamond core program. The initial program began with drilling multiple holes from initial priority pads allowing greater understanding of the subsurface geology, alteration and structural controls. As winter weather set in, the program concluded on Oct. 27 with a total of 3,478 meters (11,410.7 feet) drilled.

Mike Huravitch, Major Drilling’s foreman at the project said, “The job went extremely well. We were able to drill the footage they needed in the short amount of time we were given before winter. The crews did a great job with learning to drill the weathered and fractured rock formations in the top 200 feet of the holes.”

On LinkedIn, Major Drilling received credit for hard work, dedication and safety from Relevant Gold Corp. CEO Robert Bergmann.

Shaun Fleming, Surface Operations Manager with Major Drilling America said, “Mike and his crew did a fantastic job, with safe production from start to finish.”

Relevant Gold Corp is a junior mining exploration company with unique North American projects. The company recently listed on the Canadian Securitied Exchange with its Golden Buffalo project standing out as a high-grade, district-scale, shear-hosted, drill-ready project.

Major Drilling cheered on Relevant Gold Corp. as a newly listed CSE company. After virtually opening the market from the drill site in Wyoming, the company’s leaders saw shares begin trading mid-drilling program on August 11, 2022.

Major Drilling completed 26 holes of both HQ and PQ oriented diamond core drilling at Golden Buffalo. Early inclement weather caused the project to finish drilling just short of the targeted 4,000-meter goal.
