- Continuing to build a property-wide digital model incorporating all of the historical data and all of Gold’n Futures’ 2021 and 2022 mapping, geophysical surveys and diamond drilling; and,
- Sampling and assaying of newly recognized gold mineralization in existing historical core.
During the summer of 2023, the Company will be conducting field work that will include:
- structural mapping;
- ground geophysical surveys;
- targeted diamond drilling; and
