Vancouver, British Columbia, January 14, 2021- Emgold Mining Corporation (TSX-V: EMR) (“Emgold” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that it has contracted with Precision GeoSurveys Inc. (“Precision”) to perform an airborne magnetic-radiometric survey at its Golden Arrow Property, NV (the “Property”). Precision has conducted a 359 line-km survey covering an area of about 16.3 square kilometers. The goal of the survey is to apply modern geophysics to the southern part of the Property, including an area where Emgold recently staked 137 unpatented mineral claims, with the goal of identifying additional gold-silver exploration targets. Results from the survey are expected in first quarter 2021.
About the Golden Arrow Property
The Property is located approximately 40 miles east of Tonopah in Nye County, Nevada. It is an advanced-stage exploration property with a comprehensive exploration database including geochemical sampling, geophysics, and over 201,000 feet of reverse circulation and diamond core drilling. A 2018 Technical Report on the Property can be found under Emgold’s corporate filings on Sedar at www.sedar.com.
To date, two main exploration targets have been drilled on the Property focusing on bulk disseminated mineralization – the Gold Coin and Hidden Hill deposits. Numerous other targets have been identified for exploration. Emgold’s management believes there is potential to expand both the Hidden Hill and Gold Coin resources and for discovery of other bulk disseminated mineralization on the Property. In addition, historic underground mine workings lie along the Page Fault and other structures on the Property indicating potential for vein style mineralization that has been subject to limited modern exploration, if any, to evaluate its potential.
