For Immediate Release. June 11, 2020. Vancouver, BC. David H. Brett, President & CEO, EnGold Mines Ltd., (TSX-V: EGM, “EnGold” or the “Company”) reports that the Company has identified visible gold in bedrock at two new exploration targets on the Company’s 100% owned Lac La Hache Property in the Cariboo Region of Central BC (the “Property”). The new finds were made during prospecting of gold, polymetallic soil anomalies defined in 2019 within previously unexplored areas. Assays are being rushed and follow up work on the new zones is ongoing.
One of the new zones is located within the Aurizon West soil survey, 1100 m northwest of high grade, quartz vein-hosted, visible gold/copper at Aurizon South Deposit. The Aurizon West discovery contains multiple gold grains within a series of magnetite-pyrite-quartz-carbonate veins.
The other new zone was found while following up gold soil anomalies within the Jodie Grid, located 2300 m due west of the Aurizon South Deposit. Visible gold has been observed within narrow (~3 cm) intensely weathered veins containing limonitic clay gouge and quartz-pyrite-chalcopyrite, similar in appearance to the weathered portions of high-grade veins at Aurizon South.
“Our recent prospecting over the new soil anomalies commenced June 3 and has already produced two new occurrences containing visible gold within bedrock located in the Aurizon West and Jodie areas. ” said Rob Shives, P.Geo., EnGold VP of Exploration. “We have not completed our prospecting in either area, or on several additional gold, copper and silver soil anomalies.“
“The gold potential of Lac La Hache continues to grow,” said EnGold President & CEO David H. Brett. “Finding visible gold at brand new showings is a very encouraging sign.”
Other ongoing exploration work related to the property includes planned completion of the deep Ann North drill hole when ground conditions improve and completion of resource calculations at the Spout and G1 copper zones by SRK.
