East White Rock Springs drill highlights include (m=meters, g/t=grams per tonne) (full drill table below):

Multiple rounds of drilling at East Camp Douglas North in 2023 and 2024 have returned numerous high-grade gold intercepts.  Company drilling, combined with historic third-party drilling, continue to define a high-grade gold system at East Camp Douglas North and this recent drill program adds to the current geologic model. 

“East Camp’s East White Rock Springs target has returned notable thick, high-grade gold intervals,” stated Mr. Allan Turner, Vice President of Exploration for Fortitude Gold.  “This program focused on infill drilling in previously untested orientations in the central portion of the target area, and further delineation of gold-bearing intervals in the north central portion.  We recently completed geophysical surveys in the White Rock Springs area and are in the process of analyzing the data.  We believe gold mineralization at White Rock Springs is associated with NNE striking faults and also will continue to test a regional East-West oriented fault corridor.”
