Pilot rediscovers Carlin-style gold trend in Utah



VANCOUVER — It’s not every day that a junior exploration company takes a step outside the well-trodden Carlin and Cortez districts of Nevada to look for Carlin style gold deposits, but Pilot Gold (TSX: PLG; US-OTC: PLGTF) is proving to be the exception with its Goldstrike project, 56 km northwest of St. George, UT.

The first results from Pilot’s maiden drill program were right on target, and extended the gold footprint across a 1,200 metre strike at surface, with intercepts of 39.6 metres grading 1.01 g/t Au, 41.1 metres of 0.84 g/t and 22.9 metres of 1.68 g/t.
