Eric Owens, President and CEO, says, “These claims fit nicely into our portfolio, located as they are along important gold-producing geologic trends, and situated near major gold mining companies.” He added, “This staking allowed the Company to acquire some very promising exploration properties at minimal cost.”
Both properties are early-stage and were staked based upon in-house interpretation of regional geological and geophysical trends, as well as the location of gold deposits along these trends. E2Gold will conduct reconnaissance geologic mapping and prospecting over these new claims during the upcoming field season.
