For Immediate Release. January 22, 2020. Vancouver, BC. David H. Brett, President &CEO, EnGold Mines Ltd., (TSX-V: EGM, “EnGold” or the “Company”) reports that new soil geochemical results from two new survey areas, the Jodie and 8000 grids, reveal multiple gold anomalies in previously unexplored parts of the Company’s 100% owned Lac La Hache Property in the Cariboo region of south-central British Columbia. These new soil results are in addition to two previously announced positive surveys, the Aurizon West and Scorpio, which were part of a 1,675-sample program carried out in 2019. EnGold plans to follow up the strong soil results as soon as weather permits. Also, EnGold plans to commence a drill program at Lac La Hache in the first quarter of 2020, details of which will be announced soon.
The 2018 and 2019 soil sampling programs have 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.
