The Northern Miner‘s resident geologist Lesley Stokes takes a tour of the Core Shack at AME BC‘s Roundup 2017 conference in Vancouver, British Columbia.
She chats with Marathon Gold (TSX: MOZ; US-OTC: MGDPF) president and CEO Phillip C. Walford about the company’s emerging Valentine Lake gold project, 55 km south of the town of Buchans, in central Newfoundland.
Discussion includes Marathon’s recent drill results wherein hole MA-17-159 cut 47.5 metres true width, grading 3.43 grams gold per tonne.
Lesley’s next stop features a visit with Nighthawk Gold (TSXV: NHK; US-OTC: MIMZF) president and CEO Dr. Michael J. Byron to talk about exploration strategies at the Colomac gold property within the Indin Lake Greenstone Belt, roughly 222 km north of Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories.
