American Eagle Gold Corp. ( TSXV: AE ) (" American Eagle " or the " Company ") has completed its inaugural scout drill program located at its Golden Gate property, within the Cortez Trend and adjacent to Barrick's Goldrush mine. Drilling focused on the Northern Cortez (GG21-001) and Southern Cortez targets (GG21-002), located in the footwall of the Cortez Fault zone, 10km southeast of Barrick's Cortez Hills mine and 5km southwest of Barrick's Goldrush mine
While no significant gold mineralization was encountered, the Company is encouraged by having identified deep alteration analogous to Barrick Gold's Goldrush, Fourmile, and Cortez Hills projects next door. The drill core from GG21-001 was geologically logged in detail and photographed and sampled for gold and multi-element geochemical analysis. Drilling at hole GG21-002 was challenging due to difficult drilling conditions and supply chain issues. Despite the technical problems, the target concept for GG21-002 remains valid and requires full drill testing. Therefore, GG21-002 will be re-entered and deepened upon sourcing a reverse circulation rig to test for lower plate rocks and mineralization.
Targeting and modelling work will continue over the Golden Gate property in 2022, incorporating the geologic and geochemical data from the 2021-22 drill program. In addition, new targeting work for the eastern half of the project area will be advanced, and additional geophysical surveys will be considered to highlight potential deep structures.
American Eagle will hold its annual general and special meeting (the " Meeting ") of shareholders of the Company (" Shareholders ") on June 30, 2022 , as more particularly described in the Notice of Meeting filed on the Company's profile on the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (SEDAR). At the Meeting, the Company will seek the approval of disinterested Shareholders for its previously announced acquisition of the Cerros Rojos Project (the " Transaction "), as more particularly described in the Company's press release dated September 15, 2022 . The TSX Venture Exchange (" TSXV ") had provided conditional approval for the Transaction, provided that the Transaction received shareholder approval from the disinterested Shareholders not later than April 30, 2022 . The Company has received an extension from the TSXV and now has until June 30, 2022 , to obtain disinterested shareholder approval of the Transaction.
