EGR Exploration Receives Drill Permit for the Detour West Property

Feb 20, 2024 | NEWS

EGR Exploration Ltd. (TSX-V:EGR) (“EGR” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company’s application for a permit to conduct drilling at the Detour West Property has been approved by the Ontario Ministry of Mines. This permit allows EGR to drill for the potential westward extensions of the Detour-Fenelon Gold Trend onto EGR’s Detour West Property from the adjacent Detour Lake Mine Property owned by Agnico Eagle.

EGR received approval for one hundred and twenty three Reverse Circulation (RC) drill holes planned to test approximately 30 kilometres of interpreted structural corridors. Drill holes are planned along 16 fences of approximately 400 metre-spaced holes with 1 to 2.5 kilometres between fences.  Interpretation of all the geological and magnetic geophysical data identified five areas of interest that are the target of the proposed program.  The objective of the program is to identify gold-in-till (gold dispersal trains) that may vector to mineralized portions of interpreted shear structures and to collect top of bedrock lithological data. This will build an accurate geological map in proximity to the interpreted east-west trending shear structures that potentially represent the extension of the Detour-Fenelon Trend.



Daniel Rodriguez, CEO and Director, comments, “This is the next step in our plan to make a gold discovery on the Detour West property. With permits in place, we are ready to execute a plan to prove the westward extension of the Detour-Fenelon Trend and the Sunday Lake Deformation Zone. Our team interprets geological features and east-west structures similar to our neighbours. We want to now test this and demonstrate the productive extension of the trend.”

The technical information contained in this news release has been approved by Brian Atkinson, P.Geo. who is a Qualified Person as defined in National Instrument 43-101, Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects.
