CHEECHOO :
During this current drilling program,six holes have been completed for a total of 1,250 metres of drilling. The first core samples are currently being assayed, and drilling continues with two drill rigs (press release February 12, 2020). In addition, approximately 600 kg of material from the main stripping area, representative of the gold mineralization on the property, were collected for advanced metallurgical testing. The new tests will consist mainly of bottle roll and column leach tests on coarse material to validate the possibility of heap leach extraction.

NISKA and SOLO (Azimut Elmer gold discovery area):
The recently announced high-resolution heli-borne magnetic survey on the Niska and Solo property was successfully completed with a total of 2,589 km of flight lines. The quality of the survey results is considered excellent.
