Granada Gold Mine prepares for drilling at Aukeko
Thursday, Apr 19, 2018
Granada Gold Mine announces that it is preparing a trenching and drilling program at its Aukeko property, immediately adjacent to its flagship gold property, the Granada Gold Mine, in the province of Quebec, Canada. As well, it has filed an intervention permit for drilling on public land at Austin Rouyn. The Company is targeting starting field work in May - weather permitting.

At AUKEKO, the company will begin with precisely delineated areas of trenching and diamond drilling. The permit has been granted for trenching and 6,000 metres of drilling. Granada Gold has made the required financial deposit and hired an agronomist to supervise the work in that sector, as requested in the permit of the CPTAQ (the agricultural lands protection initiative of the province of Quebec). First Nations agreements are in place, and the exploration works are to be realized in collaboration as part of the mutual benefit agreement.

The Company also announces the filing of a request for an intervention permit and drilling at another zone further east, the historic Austin Rouyn zone. The drilling is to take place on public land once permits are received. A small excavator and a diamond drill are now at Granada waiting to move as soon as conditions allow.

The Aukeko and Austin Rouyn sectors are historical gold producers with important gold values to the East within the company extension of the LONG Bars zone.

"We are very excited to expand the exploration of our extended LONG Bars zone on strike going east to test the remainder of the unexplored mineralized structures," stated Frank J. Basa P.Eng., President and Chief Executive Officer of Granada Gold Mine. “These are highly prospective areas for production - our major focus.”
