The company undertook a bulk sampling program along a 450-metre section of the Chanach river alluvial terraces located 1 kilometre downstream from the Aucu Gold deposit.
The objective of the sampling program was to assess the placer gold potential of the 16-kilometre long river system.
Visible gold was detected in 62 samples out of the 65 samples collected.
The samples collected have been submitted to the lab for analysis with results expected in late February.

The company expects to re-commence exploration activity in March after it paused in December due to heavy winter snows.
The Aucu Project hosts 2.95 million tonnes grading 5.1 g/t gold for 484,000 ounces of contained gold.
The project also contains 17.2 million tonnes at 0.36% copper containing 64,000 tonnes of copper.
The drilling defining these resources has tested less than 5% of the identified mineralised structures and is currently open in all directions.
