Ridgeline Minerals Expands Land Package at the Selena Oxide Silver-Gold Project, Nevada
Mineralization at Selena appears to be transitioning from near-surface, oxide silver-gold at the Company's original discovery to high-grade, silver-lead-zinc at depth. This development suggests mineralization at Selena may be related to the larger metal zonation pattern of the Butte Valley copper-gold porphyry located less than 1 kilometer ("km") to the west of the property boundary (Figure 1). Both base metal carbonate replacement ("CRD") deposits and silver-gold sediment-hosted deposits can be spatially and genetically linked to porphyry systems with Selena exhibiting the potential to host both deposit types across the property (Figure 2).
Chad Peters, President & CEO commented, "With every drill program, our geologic model of Selena continues to evolve as an emerging district-scale exploration opportunity with potential to discover multiple deposit types across the 39 square kilometer property. These additional claims now consolidate the more than 3 km of untested ground between our known discovery and the Butte Valley copper-gold porphyry to the west."

Selena is located in White Pine County, Nevada, approximately 64 km north of the town of Ely, Nevada, and 12 km southeast of the Kinross owned and operated Bald Mountain Gold Mine. The 100% owned property is host to Nevada's newest silver-gold oxide discovery and is comprised of 39 square kilometers of highly prospective exploration ground, which has seen limited (View the Selena VRIFY Deck Here) exploration activity over the past twenty years prior to being acquired by Ridgeline in 2019.
