Gold Lion Evacuates Crews at South Orogrande Project, Idaho
Vancouver, British Columbia / July 14, 2021 – Gold Lion Resources Inc. (“Gold Lion” or the “Company”) (CSE: GL) (OTC: GLIOF) (FWB: 2BC) reports that its exploration crews have been safely evacuated from its South Orogrande project, near Dixie, Idaho, due to the ~15,000-acre Dixie-Jumbo wildfire, currently burning immediately east and west of the community of Dixie. Extreme hot and dry conditions are forecasted to continue for the coming weeks and an area closure is in effect for public safety on the Red River Ranger District. The full closure order, including a map of the closed area can be found at the following link:
Up to date information on the status of the Dixie-Jumbo wildfire can be found at the following link:
Exploration crews have now collected 34 rock samples and 935 soil samples on the Company’s Erickson Ridge project and 23 rock and 770 soil samples on its South Orogrande project so far in 2021. All samples have arrived at MSALabs in Langley, BC, and assays are pending.
The Company’s drill permit has now been received for its South Orogrande project and a 2,000-meter core drilling program is planned to commence once the wildfire has been contained, which is anticipated to occur in late Summer.
The Company still awaits receipt of a drill permit for its nearby Erickson Ridge project.
“Extreme hot and dry conditions throughout the month of June lead to a very high forest fire danger in the area. Safety is our top priority and we look forward to returning to the project once the fire has been contained and the area closure has been lifted. We are pleased with the exploration progress to date and are hopeful that fire crews will be able to stop the spread of the main Dixie Fire westward into the community of Dixie and that no structures will be affected.”
