Lesley Stokes at the Northern Miner is the rare combination of a geologist and a journalist. She understands what professional geologists like Victoria Gold’s VP Exploration, Paul Gray is talking about when he describes the Eagle discovery as “geologically boring, but mineralogically consistent,”. It is that consistency which drives VIT’s mine construction and the exploration efforts designed to extend the projected life of mine.
Following up her site visit in July with an interview with CEO John McConnell in November, Stokes writes,
“For John McConnell, Victoria’s president and CEO, drilling this year proved to be an “exciting” time for the company.
“We continue to add ounces at Olive and Shamrock. There’s half a million ounces in the resource and I’m sure we could double or triple that. Another new area is Catto, the grade is good. It doesn’t look like it’ll be really big, but it’s right on surface and it’ll add more ounces,” he said during a follow up interview with The Northern Miner in November. “And Bluto is our top exploration target. We’ve outlined a 2 by 1 km geochemical and geophysical anomaly there and it’s never been drilled before, so we’re excited to get back in March and see what’s there.””
