  • Ranchero is now trading on the TSX Venture Exchange as RNCH with $5m in cash to explore Maíz Azul.
  • Drill rigs have been mobilized and drilling begins this week.
  • Maíz Azul is a potentially large gold exploration target with historic drilling intercepting 36 meters of 1.6 g Au/t.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Ranchero Gold Corp. (formerly, Melior Resources Inc.) (TSXV: “RNCH”) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that trading of its shares has now started on the TSX Venture Exchange. It is also pleased to announce that the Company has contracted Globexplore Drilling. A rig is now being mobilized and is expected on site by the end of the week.

The commencement of trading is the culmination of a reverse takeover of Melior Resources and a C$$5,258,887 concurrent financing, (see news release October 8, 2021, for details.) The start of drilling begins a new phase for the Company as Ranchero begins to actively explore its Maíz Azul prospect within its 22,000-hectare concession block.

The first phase will consist of approximately 3000 meters of diamond core drilling. Its objective is to confirm and expand upon work completed by the previous project operator. This encountered multiple intercepts of gold mineralization. The Company intends to continue drilling based on the results of Phase 1.

Recent work conducted by Ranchero has identified three primary target zones known as Maíz Azul, La Cascada and X-Structure. These are characterized by strong surface gold anomalies, rock alteration typical of low-sulfidation epithermal gold systems and well-defined structural controls. The three zones are parallel to each other and encompass a combined strike length of approximately 1500 meters and varies in width from 75-150 meters. The map below shows the location of these three zones together with proposed Phase-1 drill holes.

Bill Pincus, Ranchero CEO said, “With our new listing and a full treasury we are ready to get to work. Our concessions are in the heart of the Sierra Madre Occidental gold-belt of Mexico. Gold mineralization at Maíz Azul, both on the surface and in previous drill core, tells us that this is an exciting prospect. Our location, adjacent to Alamos Gold‘s Mulatos gold mine and just kilometers away from Agnico Eagle’s La India gold mine, confirms we are in elephant country. It’s time to rock and roll.”
