Gold Links mine is located in a proven gold mining province with highly compelling geology.
February 2018 Exploration results include:
1.9m @ 80.0 g/t Gold equivalent
2.2m @ 34.8 g/t Gold equivalent
1.3m @ 36.6 g/t Gold equivalent
1.9m @ 29.7 g/t Gold equivalent
0.9m @ 35.4 g/t Gold equivalent
0.3m @ 223 g/t Gold equivalent
The Gold Links Mine consists of a series of patented and unpatented claims that host several veins. Two (the Sacramento and 2150 veins) have been prospected and operated intermittently between 1885 and 1948, with the majority of the work occurring between 1890 and 1912.
Dateline was attracted to the Gold Links project because it has the characteristics of an overlooked large regional gold system.
Past ownership of the area has been held by several parties and until now, no cohesive plan which recognized the possibility that the Gold Links Mine was part of a major regional system was ever able to be tested.
Since acquiring the Gold Links Mine in 2016, Dateline has developed an 850ft (~300metres) 5x5metre (15x15ft) exploration and haulage decline (Reynolds Decline) and several crosscuts and drifts. The purpose of the decline was to expose the vein between the upper workings of the 2150 vein and the section immediately below the Upper Gold Links adit. A second escapeway is intended to be installed from the Reynolds decline to the 9600 adit

Exploration from within the Reynolds decline has been successful. Numerous drill holes have intersected gold mineralization grades of over 60 grams per tonne and the channel sampling has returned similar grades. This success has given the Company confidence in the grades stated in the historical production records.
Recent high-grade assay results from the Gold Links site confirms the project as a mineable resource.
So far, assay results from 67 drill holes and 74 channel samples have been taken across 2,072 metres at the Gold Links property.
Of these, 37 were drilled to define the 9900-mineralised zone. 23 drill holes returned grades of more than 20g/t (0.6oz).
Six drill holes returned grades greater than 60g/t (~2oz). One drill intersection returned a grade of 223g/t (7oz+).
28 samples assayed greater than 20 g/t Au (0.6oz) equivalent, of which 20 were greater than 30 g/t Au equivalent (~1oz).
Promising assay results were also returned from the 74 channel samples at the Reynolds adit. Fifteen returned grades in excess of 20g/t (0.6oz), with seven returning grades in excess of 60g/t (~2oz).
The highest-grade sample from channelling in the Reynolds decline is an impressive 145.7g/t (~5oz)
The results from both the underground drilling and the channel samples are now being assessed by CSA global and will be reviewed by the mining engineers in 3D for mine planning and profitable extraction assessment.
Any ore extracted from the Gold Links mine will be processed at the Company’s nearby 100% owned Lucky Strike Mill.
