At the Bruell Project, east of Val D’Or, Quebec, Eldorado Gold Corp. has completed a detailed airborne magnetic survey over the claim area as well as a mechanized till sampling program. Prospecting and geologic mapping is underway. The magnetic and till sampling data are being compiled to assist in guiding the field work.
At the Oakes Project, near Matachewan, Ontario, negotiations with the Affected First Nations are progressing in advance of the receipt of an exploration permit from the Ontario Ministry of Energy, Northern Development and Mines. A drone-supported detailed airborne magnetic survey is to begin shortly, designed cover the entire 42-claim property package. Once the exploration permit is received (expected to be in mid-August) surface work will begin. The existing access road to the Oakes shaft area will be cleared and several existing trenches will be reopened, followed by detailed geologic mapping and sampling in advance of drilling.
