Published

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - March 19, 2024) - Independence Gold Corp. (TSXV: IGO) (OTCQB: IEGCF) (the "Company") is pleased to announce the commencement of a diamond drill program at its 100% owned 3Ts Project, located approximately 185 kilometres ("km") southwest of Prince George, British Columbia and situated 16 km southwest of Artemis Gold Inc.'s Blackwater Project.

The spring drill program will consist of approximately 20 planned drill holes totaling a minimum 4,200 metres ("m") and will focus on the underexplored sections of the Ted-Mint and Tommy Vein Systems, especially at depth where there is the potential for high-grade intercepts that will be used to expand the existing mineral resource (see report titled "Technical Report on the Mineral Resource Estimate Update for the 3Ts Gold Project, Omineca Mining Division, British Columbia, Canada" authored by Armitage and Miller, effective August 18th, 2022; please see news release dated August 18, 2022 for further details).

The drill budget will also allow for the testing of several geophysical targets located 400m west of the Tommy Vein, collectively known as the "Balrog" anomaly, and further testing of the Johnny and Ian veins and the Ootsa copper-silver target. The estimated budget for the spring drill program is $1.9 million.

The 3Ts Project is comprised of seventeen mineral claims covering approximately 8,840 hectares in the Nechako Plateau region of central British Columbia. The 3Ts Project covers a low-sulphidation epithermal quartz-carbonate vein district within which more than a dozen individual mineralized veins, ranging from 50 m to more than 1,100 m in length and true widths up to 25 m, have been identified.
