MegumaGold Exceeds 250,000 Acres in Nova Scotia; Completes Large Airborne Program
Vancouver, British Columbia and Halifax, Nova Scotia--(Newsfile Corp. - August 23, 2018) - MegumaGold Corp. (CSE: NSAU) (OTC: NSAUF) (FSE: 2CM2) ("MegumaGold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it continues to execute on its business plan to establish the premier gold exploration opportunity base within Nova Scotia's developing Meguma Gold Belt.
"MegumaGold continues to expand its mineral tenure position in Nova Scotia with the objective to consolidate a prospective disseminated-gold district. We believe potential similarities to Nevada's Carlin Gold District may present within Nova Scotia's Meguma Gold District and continue to be excited by the exploration potential available to our well-financed operations," stated Regan Isenor, Chief Executive Officer of MegumaGold.
Expansion of District-Scale Land Position
In May 2018, the Company announced that it had inaugurated a leading, district-scale mineral tenure position within the emerging Meguma Gold Belt that exceeded 3,800 claims (see news release dated May 18, 2018).
Subsequently, the Company is pleased to confirm that it has worked to continuously augment that land position, by way of at-cost license acquisition, to 6,723 mineral claims.
Further to the ongoing exploration described below, the Company is focused on its ongoing land acquisition activities which are centered around anticlinal structures that may be prospective for gold deposition.
MegumaGold estimates that it has now become the second largest holder of mineral tenure in Nova Scotia, in close acreage to neighbouring Atlantic Gold Corporation ("Atlantic Gold"). The Company's 6,723 mineral claims represent approximately 108,845 hectares, equivalent to approximately 268,847 acres of exclusive exploration opportunities.
More importantly, the Company believes that it now controls that largest anticlinal coverage position within Nova Scotia. MegumaGold estimates that it holds approximately 466 km (total strike-length) of gold-prospective anticlines. Recent corporate presentation disclosure by neighbouring Atlantic Gold indicates their present anticline exposure at 45km. MegumaGold believes that its strategic control of exploration anticlines is a significant, long-term competitive advantage among publicly-traded gold exploration companies operating within Nova Scotia.
The Company has recently completed, what it believes, one of the largest airborne programs in Nova Scotia's recent exploration history. Consequently, MegumaGold achieved a 12,342 kilometer aeromagnetic and radiometric survey and acquired 1,110 square kilometers of LiDAR data. The Company and its geologic consultants have compiled the majority of this data-set and continue to high-grade resulting exploration opportunities arising therefrom.
As a result of its efforts, the Company has now developed an exceptional exploration model for prospectively identifying gold deposition environments within its district-scale land holdings. MegumaGold believes this data compilation and the resulting exploration model are significant corporate achievements and will substantially augment and expedite its ability to target prospective areas.
