This past month, the Investing News Network was lucky enough to get to see the first gold pour from bulk sample material from Golden Predator Mining’s (TSXV:GPY) 3 Aces project in Canada’s Yukon.
Check out some of our photos from the event below, as well as a video of the gold pour in action!
We were also able to visit the 3 Aces property earlier that week. Our writeup on the project can be found here.
Without further ado, here are the photos:
