The shareholders elected Gerald Panneton (Chair), Patsie Ducharme, Laurie Gaborit, and Hellen Siwanowicz as directors of the Company for the forthcoming year.
Louis Dionne has stepped down as a director but will continue as a Senior Technical Advisor for Gold Terra on an as-needed basis. Mr. Dionne, a seasoned mining engineer, brings a wealth of expertise to the Company with many achievements over his career span. Mr. Dionne was director at Detour Gold Corporation (Detour) from 2006 to 2014 and an instrumental part of the team that helped build the Detour Lake mine into the largest Canadian gold mine. Prior to his involvement with Detour, he was mine manager at Camflo Mines in Quebec, under the late Bob Smith, which eventually became Barrick Gold Corporation (Barrick). Mr. Dionne spent over 20 years in the operations, development, mergers, and acquisitions of gold properties as Senior Vice President, Underground Operations for Barrick. He developed the high grade Meikle mine and Rodeo project in Nevada and the Holt-McDermott Mine in Ontario. Following his tenure at Barrick, Mr. Dionne became President and CEO of Richmont Mines Inc. (2002 -2005), a junior gold producer with operations in Quebec and Newfoundland. During his tenure, he was instrumental in the acquisition of the Island Gold mine, now owned by and operated by Alamos Gold Inc. Mr. Dionne was also a director of Aurizon Mines from 2006-2013.
Chairman and CEO Gerald Panneton stated, "Thank you Louis for many years of excellent counselling, and mentoring. Louis has contributed greatly to our technical success, and we look forward to his ongoing technical support in his new role as Senior Technical Advisor. We thank all our shareholders for their support over the years, and on the last successful financing, as we continue to focus on our quest to define more ounces at the Con Mine Option property."
Shareholders approved the reappointment of Dale Matheson Carr-Hilton Labonte LLP, Chartered Professional Accountants, as the auditor of the Company for the ensuing year with their remuneration to be fixed by the board of directors.
Con Mine Option Property Deep Drilling Update
Drilling is progressing well with drill hole GTCM23-055 targeting high grade gold mineralization beneath the mine workings on the northern end of the Campbell Shear. The hole is over half-way to its target depth of 2,400 metres with the hole currently at approximately 1,300 metres down-hole, with no issues on dip and or azimuth objectives.
About Gold Terra
The Yellowknife Project (YP) encompasses 918 sq. km of contiguous land immediately north, south and east of the City of Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories. Through a series of acquisitions, Gold Terra controls one of the six major high-grade gold camps in Canada. Being within 10 kilometres of the City of Yellowknife, the YP is close to vital infrastructure, including all-season roads, air transportation, service providers, hydro-electric power, and skilled tradespeople. Gold Terra is currently focusing its drilling on the prolific Campbell Shear, where 14 Moz of gold has been produced, and most recently on the Con Mine Option (CMO) property claims immediately south of the past producing Con Mine which produced 6.1 Moz between the Con, Rycon, and Campbell shear structures (1938-2003).
The YP and CMO properties lie on the prolific Yellowknife greenstone belt, covering nearly 70 kilometres of strike length along the main mineralized shear system that hosts the former-producing high-grade Con and Giant gold mines. The Company's exploration programs have successfully identified significant zones of gold mineralization and multiple targets that remain to be tested which reinforces the Company's objective of re-establishing Yellowknife as one of the premier gold mining districts in Canada.
