POST FALLS, Idaho, Aug. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Star Gold Corp. (OTC Markets: SRGZ) is pleased to announce receipt of a letter from the U.S. Forest Service approving its Plan of Operation (POO) on its Longstreet property located 25 miles southeast of the Round Mountain mine in south-central Nevada. The company plans to drill 25-30 holes totaling 10,000 feet in its Phase 1 program. Infill and expansion drilling will be initiated at Main, where an independent geologist's report (see June 7, 2011 press release) identified an average grade of 0.053 oz/ton.
Drilling will be completed using a Reverse Circulation (RC) rig drilling angle holes across the steeply dipping vein sets. The target is a Round Mountain style open pit heap leach gold/silver deposit. After drilling Main, the drill rig will move to the North Target, one of eight additional targets identified within the Longstreet property boundary, and drill 4-6 holes. Mapping and geochemical sampling at North indicates a target very similar to Main which Star has not yet drill tested. A map showing the various targets can be found on the company's website www.stargoldcorp.com.
