In addition to announcing the completion of its January drilling campaign, Hunt Gold also announced this morning that it has acquired an additional 26 lode mining claims at its “Mockingbird” Gold property in Arizona. Collectively, the lode mining claims cover 520 acres, which is close to a square mile of land.

Hunt Gold Corporation’s CEO Mike Saner stated, “We are very excited by the great start to our ‘Mockingbird’ Gold Project and the huge opportunity that this project represents for the company and its shareholders. We are investing in the company’s leading Mining property in its portfolio and fortifying its already impressive land position.”

The following new claims encircle existing Hunt Gold Corporation lode claims:

Mockingbird Gold Mine:
The company acquired five new lode mining claims surrounding the “Mockingbird” Gold Mine. An additional eight lode mining claims were located south of the Company’s “Mockingbird” Gold Mine and covering several veins that run parallel to the “Mockingbird” vein.

Dandy Gold Mine:
Five new lode mining claims were acquired surrounding the Dandy Gold Mine.

Great West Gold Mine:
Three new claims were acquired at the Great West Mine.

Pocahontas Mine:
One new claim was also added at this mine.

Hunt Gold Corporation also acquired the Williamson Mine and the Blue Copper Mine. The Blue Copper Mine is located northeast of the Company’s “Mockingbird” Gold Mine, while the Williamson Mine is located southeast of the mine along the road to the Great West, Dandy and Pocahontas Mines. Both the Williamson Mine and the Blue Copper Mine were former copper producers. Copper in its oxide forms is a pathfinder element at the Company’s “Mockingbird” Gold property, as it is frequently associated with gold. The company plans to explore these two additional mines for their gold potential.

According to the press release, the additional lode mining claims were acquired from the original vendor of the Mockingbird property at no cost to Hunt Gold Corporation; except for the BLM filing fees. The Company is currently focused on completing the staking of an additional 48 Lode Mining Claims surrounding the Company’s “Mockingbird” Gold Project.
