Montréal, Québec – March 25, 2021 – Goldstar Minerals Inc. (“Goldstar” or the “Corporation”) (TSX-V: GDM) is pleased to announce that it has commenced the permitting process for its upcoming drilling campaign at Lac Anctil.
The Corporation has completed its targeting exercise and has initiated the permitting process on its Anctil property in the Chibougamau area of Québec. Goldstar expects to begin its first phase diamond drilling program after permitting is completed. A total of 2,000 metres consisting of 10 to 15 holes are budgeted for the program.
David Crevier, CEO comments “The 2020 Fall prospecting campaign along with the VTEM airborne survey has significantly refined our approach. When coupled to the historical evidence for both disseminated and high-grade gold resulting from a 1987 drill program carried out by a prior operator, the newly interpreted northeast structure opens up the considerable potential of this target. The permitting process brings us one step closer to being able to drill the interpreted structure which will provide new information to further our understanding of the potential at Anctil.”
The Corporation is also pleased to announce the appointment of Roy McDowall to its board of directors.
