EGR Exploration hits major milestone with drill permits granted on Detour West Project

–News Direct–

EGR Exploration Limited CEO Daniel Rodriguez joined Steve Darling from Proactive to share significant news regarding the company's Detour West Property, as their application for a drilling permit has been approved by the Ontario Ministry of Mines.

Rodriguez revealed that the approved permit allows EGR to commence drilling activities aimed at exploring the potential westward extensions of the Detour-Fenelon Gold Trend onto EGRs Detour West Property, which is adjacent to the Detour Lake Mine Property owned by Agnico Eagle.

The company has received approval for the drilling of one hundred and twenty-three Reverse Circulation drill holes, planned to test approximately 30 kilometers of interpreted structural corridors. These drill holes are strategically planned along 16 fences spaced approximately 400 meters apart, with 1 to 2.5 kilometers between fences.

Interpretation of geological and magnetic geophysical data has identified five areas of interest, which are the primary targets of the proposed drilling program.

The objective of this program is to identify gold-in-till (gold dispersal trains) that may lead to mineralized portions of interpreted shear structures and to gather top-of-bedrock lithological data. This data collection process will aid in creating an accurate geological map in close proximity to the interpreted east-west trending shear structures, potentially representing extensions of the Detour-Fenelon Trend.

This approval marks a significant milestone for EGR Exploration Limited, allowing the company to advance its exploration efforts and potentially uncover valuable mineral resources in the Detour West Property area.
