December 19, 2023 – Gold79 Mines Ltd. (TSX-V:AUU) (OTCQB:AUSVF) (“Gold79” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on the permitting process at its Jefferson Canyon project, in Nevada.
The original Plan of Operations for Jefferson Canyon was submitted in July 2021 and the cultural and biological studies were completed and submitted in Q2 2022. Gold79 received feedback on the proposed areas of disturbance relative to identified cultural sites in March 2023. After multiple revisions to the plan it was resubmitted on December 12, 2023. The revised application is for 20 drill sites and associated roads to service them.
Derek Macpherson, President and CEO of Gold79, states, “The permitting process at Jefferson Canyon has taken far longer than originally anticipated. While this has been a frustratingly long process for both Company shareholders and management, the recent progress provides us a positive view that the permitting process may be completed in-time for the 2024 exploration season.”
The Jefferson Canyon project in Nye County, Nevada is located 7 kilometres from Kinross’s Round Mountain operations. The project has 145 historical drill holes, including 41.2m at 6.4 g/t gold and 402 g/t silver (GJ-81). In 2022, Gold79 entered into an Exploration and Option agreement with Kinross. Kinross has made all the required payments associated with the agreement to date and has been working with Gold79 on completing the permitting process.
The Company has granted incentive stock options to a director of the Company to purchase up to 300,000 common shares of the Company pursuant to the Company’s stock option plan. The options have a five-year term to expiry and are exercisable at $0.05 per share.
