FireFox Gold Corp has report that diamond core drilling has started at its 100% owned Mustajarvi Gold Project in the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt, Finland. This phase of drilling consists of nine planned drill holes, with total length of approximately 1,500 metres. The program has two primary objectives: (1) to follow up the high-grade mineralization intersected earlier this year, and (2) to increase the strike length of the mineralization by stepping out beyond the historic mineralization located near the center of the Mustajarvi property.

The first four drill holes will follow up the high-grade gold mineralization (2m @ 45.1 g/t Au) intersected during the Company's Phase 1 drilling last winter (see FireFox news release dated 21 Jan, 2019). Of these four holes, two will target the continuation of this high-grade gold zone another 25m and 50m down dip, respectively. The remaining two holes are planned to test the strike extent of this mineralization 25m east and west.

The fifth hole will test the continuation of mineralization encountered in two historical Outokumpu drill holes, one of which intersected 2.7m @ 14.6 g/t Au. Drill hole six will be an attempt to duplicate an Outokumpu hole that intersected 12m @ 2.7 g/t Au despite suffering severe core loss up to 50%. The aim of these holes is to better understand the true width and grades of the near-surface mineralization.
