Marathon Gold Plans 60,000-m Drill Program at Valentine Lake
Marathon Gold has announced exploration and development plans for its Valentine Lake Gold Camp property in central Newfoundland that include a 60,000-meter (m) drill program focused primarily on the Marathon deposit. Three drills are on site, with a fourth to be added in the third quarter of 2017. The company is also prospecting a 7-km2 area to the northeast of the Victory deposit on the property, where historical gold showings warrant additional work.
Marathon planning also includes advanced environmental studies for future mine permitting and additional metallurgical work to optimize recoveries for conventional milling and heap leaching.
