Chesapeake Gold Updates Regional Exploration Program

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – March 7, 2017) – Chesapeake Gold Corp. (“Chesapeake”) (TSX VENTURE:CKG) is pleased to provide an update on the regional exploration program conducted near its 100% owned Metates project in Durango and proposed El Paso plant site in Sinaloa States, Mexico. Metates hosts one of the largest undeveloped gold, silver and zinc reserves in the world. Four precious and base metal projects with district scale potential have been identified and systematically advanced in 2016 and 2017. Currently, Chesapeake’s regional land position totals more than 85,000 hectares.

The four projects are strategically located along a prolifically mineralized corridor that parallels the Pacific coast and lies along the western margin of the Sierra Madre Occidental. Two projects, Yarely and El Paso, are located within 15 kilometers of paved highways and 25 kilometers of the El Paso plant site. Chesapeake believes this highly prospective, under-explored region could develop an organic pipeline of high value projects with potential synergies with the future development of Metates.
