Belmont President & CEO provides a video update on the Greenwood Mining Camp projects and the proposed drilling program on the Athelstan-Jackpot (A-J) gold project. The A-J property has two past producing gold mines which collectively produced 7,600 ozs Au & 9,000 ozs Ag (Minfile 082ESE047). The A-J Group was one of the most productive gold mines in the Greenwood mining district of southern British Columbia.
The primary target of the planned drill program is a coincident strong resistivity-chargeability anomaly identified only 130 meters below the two former gold mines. This large IP anomaly is identified as a possible causative source of gold mineralization at surface including the two mines.
