For Immediate Release. June 4, 2020. Vancouver, BC. David H. Brett, President & CEO, EnGold Mines Ltd., (TSX-V: EGM, “EnGold” or the “Company”) reports that exploration crews have resumed work at the Company’s 100% owned Lac La Hache Property in the Cariboo Region of Central BC. Prospecting of new gold, polymetallic soil anomalies discovered in 2019 is underway and drilling of the Ann North deep drill hole AN20-01 will resume when wet ground conditions improve, allowing access. The work is expected to be completed by the end of June, 2020.
Hole AN20-01 was drilled to a depth of 604 metres in March and suspended due to concerns around the novel coronavirus Covid-19. The Company plans to complete the hole to its original target depth of 800 metres. The deep hole provides an initial test for evidence of alkalic porphyry mineralization below the historic copper, gold and quartz-rich hydrothermal breccias outlined by prior drilling closer to surface.
“We’re happy to be back exploring at Lac La Hache,” said EnGold President & CEO David Brett. “We are also anticipating the maiden G1 Copper Zone resource calculation and the Spout Copper Deposit recalculations underway by SRK.”
The 2019 soil sampling program resulted in multiple new gold exploration targets on the property including Aurizon West and Jodie grids As previously announced, detailed soil sampling programs produced 93 sites which exceed the 95th percentile (>500 parts per billion gold) and 36 of these exceed the 98th percentile (> 100 ppb gold). At Jodie more than 20 anomalous sites provide prospecting targets, including a continuous 500 metre by 200 metre cluster of sites with gold values up to 662 ppb (see image below). Images of the results for all areas can be found here , including contour maps for gold, silver, copper, molybdenum, nickel, tungsten, lead and zinc.
