The great advantage of a brownfields project, within the shadow of a previous mine’s headframe, is you are almost certain to find gold. But is that enough?

Golden Predator Mining Corp. (TSX.V:GPY, OTCQX:NTGSF) (the “Company”) today announced results of the 2018 drill program in the Central Core Area at the 3 Aces Project in southeast Yukon, Canada, which was completed to test for extensions of the high grade structures outcropping in the Hearts Zone. Seven HQ diamond drill holes consistently intercepted two parallel, closely spaced gold-bearing structures along 220m of strike and 500m down dip from the Hearts discovery outcrop. This was the deepest drilling to date on the project and the structures in the Hearts Zone continue to be open in all directions along strike and at depth.
