(PresseBox) - U.S. Gold Corp. (NASDAQ: USAU - ), a gold exploration and development company, today is pleased to announce the completion and compilation of the district-wide geochemical surveys on the Keystone project.

- U.S. Gold Corp. has completed comprehensive and effective blanket geochemical sample surveys covering the 20-square-mile Keystone district project area.

- The primary purpose of the multifaceted 2017 geochemical surveys was to assist in identifying and defining site-specific gold targets to be drill tested in 2018.

- The highly anomalous geochemical levels and widespread distribution of metals being sought, in particular gold, along with associated pathfinder metals, demonstrates the potential presence of a very large, robust gold-bearing multi-metallic hydrothermal system at Keystone.

- All current data indicate that the Keystone hydrothermal system is early Tertiary in origin and similar to those that host the major Carlin-type gold deposits in Nevada.

- An EA (Environmental Assessment) study for the purpose of expanded exploration commenced in early 2017 and is scheduled to be completed soon.

Up to this point, most Keystone project drilling was considered to be ?scout drilling? conducted to obtain 1) critical information related to host rock characteristics, 2) locations of specific host horizons within the approximately 3000-foot-thick prospective host rock package, and 3) gold deposit model characteristics and also to provide broad important gold system information.

Late 2016 through 2017 drilling was limited to access permitted through four individual 5-acre NOIs (Notices of Intent). or drill access, considerable advancements in exploration understandings have resulted from the initial, rather wide-spaced scout hole drilling programs conducted to date.

The current geochemical data can be accessed and viewed through the following link:

Sixteen individual district-wide maps are provided; these maps individually exhibit the eight elements of Gold, Silver, Arsenic, Antimony, Mercury, Copper, Molybdenum and Zinc.

Bureau Veritas Minerals (BV Labs) and American ALS (Chemex Labs in Reno, Nevada) were utilized for the analyses of all new data.

Dave Mathewson, Vice President of Exploration for U.S. Gold Corp., stated, "At this time, we are at an important stage in the Keystone exploration program.e bodies of dissolution-related collapse breccias with associated and hydrothermal styles of alteration, including silicification, argillization, and sulfidation; multiple types and styles of system-related dikes and sills; and local, very strong pathfinder elements, including the presence of locall

Edward Karr, president and CEO of U.S. Gold Corp., stated, "We are very encouraged with the Keystone exploration results to date. Exploration is an ongoing process, and our entire technical team has been deeply involved.
