Enforcer Gold Corp (“Enforcer” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: VEIN) (FSE: N071) is pleased to inform its shareholders that the Board of Directors has agreed to accelerate its earn-in schedule on the Roger gold-copper project, for which it recently announced an updated mineral resource estimate. The project is advantageously located 5 km north of the historic mining center Chibougamau, Quebec, has all-season road access and is crossed by a power line that serviced the past-producing Troilus Mine. Enforcer is earning a 50% interest in the project from project operator, SOQUEM.
President and CEO Steve Roebuck, comments:
“Based on the favourable results of the updated resource estimate, Enforcer has decided to accelerate the earn-in phase of its option agreement by financing a Phase 2 diamond drilling program set to commence in September 2018. Planning is in progress and details of the upcoming program will be announced shortly.
The new resource estimate is a significant milestone for the Company and comes after investing in a 3,068 m drill program. We are very pleased of how far the project has advanced in the 8-month period since entering the option agreement. The Company is fully funded to cover the Phase 2 program which in turn will meet its year 2 spending obligation of $750,000.
I’d like to add that our working relationship with SOQUEM has been excellent; they bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table and are a very efficient operators. We look forward to the next steps in Roger’s development.”
Pit-Constrained Mineral Resource Estimate on the Mop-II Gold-Copper Deposit – July 4, 2018
Note: Details of the 2018 mineral resource estimate are provided in the Company’s press release dated August 28, 2018. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.
On January 11, 2018, Enforcer announced that it had signed an agreement with SOQUEM to acquire a 50% interest in the Roger project by spending $2 million on work programs and issuing 1 million shares over a three-year period. Enforcer completed its first year $500,000 financial commitment by financing the Phase 1, 3,068 m diamond drilling program, which was designed to validate certain historic drilling and determine if mineralization continued at depth. Results of the program exceeded expectations, intersecting very consistent mineralization throughout each hole and in most cases with grades and widths exceeding the historical results (June 20, 2018 press release).
Following recent discussions with project operator SOQUEM, it was decided to accelerate the commencement of the Phase 2 exploration program starting in September 2018. The Company is fully funded to meet its Year 2 obligations of $750,000.
