EnGold Mines (TSXV:EGM) has reported that the company will re-commence drilling at its Lac La Hache copper property in British Columbia on Monday, June 11.
Initial drilling will target down dip and on strike extensions of the high-grade copper Spout North Zone within the Spout Copper Deposit. Drilling in the G1 copper and gap zones is expected to get underway in July, 2018. The company has also added 2566 hectares of new mineral claims on the northern part of the Lac La Hache property to cover ground believed to have exploration potential.
As quoted in the press release, EnGold chief executive officer David Brett said:
“EnGold believes the Spout Copper Deposit, previously modelled as a low-grade open-pit copper-magnetite resource, has strong potential to develop into a high-grade underground deposit. Our plan with Spout Copper is to publish a recalculation of the resource based on a high-grade, underground mining model later this year, using the new 2018 drilling results and the 200-plus Spout drill holes we already have.”
