The great thing about brownfield exploration is that you know the gold is there. All the more so if you are exploring in one of Canada’s greatest gold districts, the Abitibi and the Val-d’Or Mining Camp.
Marathon Gold (V.MOZ) has gone from being a gold explorer to a gold mine developer over the last two years. Phillip Walford, the company’s President and CEO, is supervising this transition and was very pleased with the company’s updated Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA).

Goldplay Exploration Ltd. (TSXV: GPLY, OTCQB: GLYXF) (“Goldplay” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company will undertake a private placement of up to 6,818,182 units (the “Units”) at a price of CDN$0.22 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to CDN$1,500,000.

Aben Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: ABN) (OTCQB: ABNAF) (Frankfurt: E2L2) (the “Company”) reports further results from the recently completed drill program at the Forrest Kerr Project. Drilling has extended the mineralized envelope surrounding the 2017 and 2018 high-grade gold discoveries at North Boundary. This round of focused drilling tested for the depth and lateral extension of known mineralized shear and vein sets located in the North Boundary Zone. Broad horizons of low to moderate grade gold mineralization were encountered in several of the 15 drill holes (FK18-22 à36) reported herein, while all drill holes encountered discrete polymetallic vein hosted mineralization with gold values ranging from trace amounts to 13 grams per tonne (g/t) over 1 meter.
Golden Predator Mining Corp. (TSX.V:GPY, OTCQX:NTGSF) (the “Company”) reported today that drilling of the extensive soil geochemical target in the Sprogge Area of the 3 Aces Project located in southeast Yukon has discovered an important new style of disseminated gold mineralization. The Sprogge Area discovery represents a potentially large gold-bearing intrusive system not previously encountered at the 3 Aces Project. Follow-up exploration of this new gold discovery is planned for 2019 starting with geophysical surveys designed to target blind intrusive-related gold mineralization at depth.
