Ridgeline Minerals Commences 3,500 Meter Infill and Step-Out Drill Program at the Selena Oxide Silver-Gold Project
Vancouver, May 4, 2021 - Ridgeline Minerals Corp. (TSXV: RDG) (OTCQB: RDGMF) (FSE: 0GC0) ("Ridgeline" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has mobilized a reverse circulation (RC) drill rig to its Selena project located in White Pine County, Nevada. The primary focus of the Phase IV drill program (3,500 meters) is to further define the potential scale of the shallow-oxide, silver-gold discovery as the Company advances the project towards a maiden resource in late 2022. The program will consist of 15-17 infill and step-out drillholes across the more than two kilometers ("km") of drill defined strike (see February 8, 2021 Press Release) between the Company's new discovery and the Sonic target located approximately 1.3 km to the north. (Figure 1).
Mike Harp, Ridgeline's Vice President, Exploration commented, "we are excited to get back out to the field and continue expanding the shallow-oxide, silver-gold footprint at Selena with our most aggressive drill program to-date. A mix of infill and step-out drilling will selectively target high-grade mineralization within the known mineralized footprint as well as the projection of shallower mineralization to the north of our known discovery at the highly prospective Sonic target, already host to shallow historical drill intercepts."

Selena is located in White Pine County, 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 comprised of 35 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.
All samples are submitted to Paragon Geochemical Assay Laboratories (PAL) of Sparks, NV, which is a certified and accredited laboratory, independent of the Company. Samples are run through standard prep methods and analysed using AU-OES30 (Au; 30g fire assay AQR digest/ICP+10ppb Hg by MS) and 34MA-OESm (35 element Suite; 0.5g 4-acid digestion/ICP-MS; + 10ppb Hg) methods. PAL also undertakes its own internal coarse and pulp duplicate analysis to ensure proper sample preparation and equipment calibration. Ridgeline's QA/QC program includes regular insertion of CRM standards, duplicates, and blanks into the sample stream with a stringent review of all results completed by the Company's QP, Michael T. Harp, Vice President, Exploration.
