Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - June 9, 2021) - David H. Brett, President & CEO, EnGold Mines Ltd., (TSXV: EGM) ("EnGold" or the "Company") reports that EnGold has added leading geoscientist Dr. Gerry Ray Ph.D., P.Eng., P.Geo. to its technical advisory board. Dr. Ray's extensive experience and knowledge of BC mineral deposits will help EnGold's team explore its 100% owned Lac La Hache Copper Gold Project in the Cariboo region of south-central BC.
Dr. Ray, who completed his studies in England, came to Canada after working in Africa, Asia, South America, and Australia. In British Columbia, he worked with the BC Geological Survey for 21 years, mapping multiple mining districts and studying a variety of deposit types, including gold veins in the Coquihalla Gold Belt and Harrison Lake area. He is best known for his expertise in BC skarns and porphyry systems. A regular contributor to "Economic Geology," he is now a globally sought-after consultant.
"I am honored to join EnGold's experienced and dynamic exploration team led by its VP Exploration Mr. Robert Shives," said Dr. Ray. "Geologically, the 275 sq km Lac La Hache property is dominated by highly prospective Nicola Group rocks and many Cu-Au ± Mo-bearing intrusions. I believe that more economic skarn deposits will be found, in addition to the three significant Cu-Au-Ag skarns already discovered. However, the property's greatest asset is the likelihood that it hosts a major alkali Cu-Au porphyry system, similar to those worked at the world-class Mount Polley, Afton-Ajax and Copper Mountain mines. It is a very exciting project and I am happy to be part of it."
"I am thrilled that Dr. Ray has agreed to apply his extensive global and highly relevant, BC-specific experience to our project," said EnGold VP of Exploration Rob Shives, P.Geo. "We are building up our technical team of geologists and support staff in preparation for a ramped-up level of exploration, commencing in a few weeks."
In connection with the appointment, the Company has granted incentive stock options to purchase 500,000 shares of EnGold at $0.07 for a period of three years.
EnGold (www.engold.ca) is focused on exploring the district-scale alkalic copper-gold porphyry system located on its 100% owned property located near the town of Lac La Hache in BC's prolific Cariboo mining region, home to world-class porphyry deposits. EnGold's corporate philosophy rests on three interdependent pillars: Environment, Engagement and Gold. Through sound environmental stewardship, commitment to transparent engagement with local communities.
