Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – October 21, 2020) – Blue Star Gold Corp. (TSXV: BAU) (FSE: 5WP) (“Blue Star” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that Eugene Flood, P.Geo. has agreed to serve as technical advisor to the Company. Eugene is a professional geologist with more than 35 years experience in Canada and internationally, most of this in orogenic gold terranes. He graduated from Lakehead University with a B.Sc. degree in geology in 1985. Eugene discovered what is now called the Flood Zone on the Ulu property in June 1989 for BHP Minerals. From 1989 to 1994 he also discovered several additional mineralized zones on this property including the Central Zone, West Limb, East Limb, South Zone, Gnu Zone, Zebra, Apex, and the Northern Fold Nose Zone. During this time as the Ulu project geologist, Eugene was involved in all aspects of the Ulu project including mapping, drilling, and calculating the first resource on the Flood Zone. In 1994, while still with BHP Minerals, Eugene identified the Doris Lake area in North Hope Bay, Nunavut as highly prospective for gold. He completed the first mapping and drill programs at Doris resulting in this high-grade discovery which achieved commercial production in 2017. Eugene has authored papers on gold mineralization at Ulu and Hope Bay.
Mr. Flood specializes in project and target generation and has experience from reconnaissance to resource development with junior and major mining companies in over 20 countries. As the owner of Flood Consulting, he has provided GIS-based spatial prospectivity analysis for such clients as Goldfields, B2 Gold, and Goldcorp, and currently acts as technical advisor to Aurion Resources in the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt in Finland. In addition to 10 years working in the Slave Structural Province Eugene has also worked on orogenic gold deposits in Ontario, Sweden, Finland, French Guyana, and Brazil.
Grant Ewing, CEO of Blue Star commented: “We are excited to have Eugene bring his wealth of experience and track record of success to Blue Star. His ability to integrate and analyze large data sets will strengthen our technical team immediately and will benefit the future value of our Company. A first objective is for him to help us update the resource model as well as developing and prioritizing targets on our Ulu and Hood projects. Our goal is to expand the resource on the Flood Zone, discover additional near surface ounces in the proximal targets, and make new discoveries on our Hood Property.”
