- Hoodoo East, along trend from neighbouring Enduro Metal’s significant drill intercept and recently identified gold targets (announced July 6, 2020), has just been upgraded in priority for immediate exploration. An extensive work program will be executed in this underexplored area for potential future drilling;
- Mineralization highlighted by Enduro’s news demonstrates the skarn potential in the area, and multiple, prospective skarn showings found in 2019 at Rock & Roll suggests high-grade gold-silver resource potential; and
- A drilling program is expected to follow several weeks of field sampling, prospecting and mapping of all 7 potential drill targets and 7 areas of priority.
