GreenOre Gold PLC would like to announce the acquisition of further exploration ground in Scotland near Straiton, South Ayrshire. The total prospecting area covers 250km squared. Historic references include 57g/t gold in outcrop. This decision was made following a rigorous review of all gold occurrences in Scotland. The area has all the right characteristics to host a large scale mineral deposit. Exploration will begin in Spring 2016.
“GreenOre Gold PLC is pleased to announce the acquisition of a further 248km squared prospecting area to the north and east of the ‘Towie’ licence. This has increased the total prospecting area to 500km squared encompassing the townships of Towie, Rhynie and Alford. The increased size of the prospecting area was due to the positive results obtained in the second half of 2015. The results include many high grade rock samples up 53.8g/t over a 10km trend. Visible gold was also noted in a rock sample and numerous streams. Future work will aim to identify the extent of the gold trend and locate new targets. Work will include stream sediment sampling, rock and soil analysis with the possibility of trenching and drilling to obtain gold in bedrock. This move is a part of the joint venture agreement with Koza Ltd.”

‘Greenore’ successfully tests two gold outcrops in existing quarries at Towie, Aberdeenshire. The preliminary drilling indicates economic grades of gold at surface with potential that continued or increased grade exist at depth. Higher grade material has been found in three other localities but no associated outcrop identified as of yet. The latest results prove the potential for Aberdeenshire to host significant precious metal mineralisation. Further exploration will continue into the new year. -GB
