2021 Drilling Program
The 2021 drilling program will seek to intercept lower plate carbonate rocks, which host most of the world-class gold deposits in the region, including the Newmont and Barrick's Goldrush deposit next door. Three holes of approximately 3,000 feet will be drilled utilizing results from the field exploration program currently underway. The results of these drill holes will further help American Eagle Gold vector into high-grade mineralization targets in the area.
Anthony Moreau stated, "It is promising to see how well our 2021 exploration program has progressed so far. Our VP of Exploration, Mark Bradley , helped lead the team that made the Goldrush discovery next door, and we are excited at the prospect of making a similar discovery at Golden Trend. The Cortez Trend is a world-class gold district, and I believe we have just scratched the surface in terms of its potential."
