Phase I Surface and Underground Exploration Program
Engineer Gold is permitted and equipped to commence an exploration program at the Engineer Gold Mine Property entailing:
3,000 metres of surface and underground exploration drilling
mine de-watering of 6 and 7 Level (8 Level pending)
underground geological mapping and sampling
test mining and bulk sampling
on-site milling and mill water discharge
New High-Grade and Bulk-Tonnage Gold Exploration Targets Defined
A 2018 step-out MMI survey and previous geophysical survey have defined extensions of two main shear structures, a large intrusive stock and a number of coincidental gold-silver-arsenic-antimony soil anomalies in the immediate mine area that have never been trenched or drill tested. Engineer Gold's surface program will focus on these new targets.
Heavy Equipment and Drill on Site
In 2018 the Company purchased and barged a D6 Caterpillar bull dozer and 130 Samsung excavator, fuel and a diamond drill to the Engineer Gold mine site. The heavy equipment will be utilized to develop and re-open existing roads, trench soil geochemical anomalies and construct drill pads. A custom underground diamond drill has been built and will be mobilized to the Property in June.

Engineer Gold advises that the insiders of the Company may participate in the financing, which will be completed pursuant to available related-party exemptions under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions).
