Vancouver, British Columbia – Engineer Gold Mines Ltd. (the “Company” or “Engineer”) (TSXV: EAU) is pleased to announce it has begun a program to drill water monitoring wells in the vicinity of the proposed tailings storage facility (“TFS”) in support of its application to complete a 10,000 tonne bulk sample at its Engineer Gold Mine project near Atlin, BC.
Working with Tetra Tech Canada Inc., 4 water monitoring wells will be drilled around the proposed TSF within the general footprint of the existing 30 tonne per day mill facility area at the Engineer Gold Mine. The water monitoring wells are expected to be drilled to a depth of between 30 to 100 meters. This and additional environmental baseline data collected in 2021 is expected to support the advancement of permit applications towards obtaining authorization to complete a 10,000-tonne bulk sample.
