2019 Prospecting Campaign

Prospecting work to be conducted in October 2019 will focus on the northern Sakami block, where several anomalous zones were identified from the results of geophysical IP and Mag survey conducted last winter by Genius Metals. These zones will be investigated by trenching and collecting channel/grab samples. Areas located northeast of the current geophysical grid will also be prospected by a team of experienced field geologists and a crew of prospectors. The company hopes to discover gold mineralized zones and define new drilling targets.

2019-2020 Drilling Campaign

A drilling campaign is planned for the fall-winter 2019-2020 seasons. The objective is to drill approximately 1,000 meters of core distributed in 7-8 holes targeting the most promising gold sites, some of which will be established from the results of the prospecting campaign.
