Calgary, Canada- TheNewswire – June 10, 2022 – Crestview Exploration Inc. (CSE: CRS), (Frankfurt: CE7) (“Crete“or the”Company”) is pleased to announce an upcoming Source Controlled Audio-Frequency Magnetotelluric (CSAMT) geophysical survey on the Rock Creek Gold Prospect to be conducted by Geophysics GPR International Inc. The survey will include four east-west lines across the property ( Figure 1), and is expected to start mid-July 2022.
The survey will be completed prior to planned drilling at Rock Creek and will serve to both finalize our drill hole selection and build on an understanding of the geology at depth.
The two southernmost lines (1 and 2) will cross the 1.6 km gold-arsenic anomaly delineated by a mobile metal ion (MMI) ground survey conducted by Ironwood Gold Corp. in 2010 (Figure 2). Line 1 is also in the outcrop area of the Paleozoic sequence and assumed to be lower in the stratigraphy. Line 2 crosses the widest part of the MMI anomaly along the transect with two of the proposed drill holes.

The two northern lines (3 & 4) intersect or are close to a historic drilling program carried out by Shell in 1983 which produced interesting results. Line 3 bisects historic holes CC-10 and CC-11 which would each have intersected 100 feet of 0.02 opt gold mineralization (Cruson and Limbach, 1985 in Amended Technical Report – Rock Creek Project, Rock Creek Mining District, 2019). Line 4 is just south of historic hole CC-2, which is described as having encountered pyritized carbonaceous siltstone at depth:
“The upper 265 feet of this hole penetrated weathered tuff with numerous gold showings…then sank into 135 feet of pyritized carbonaceous siltstone” (Cruson and Limbach, 1985 in Amended Technical Report – Rock Creek Project, Rock Creek Mining District, 2019).
