About Enduro Metals
Enduro Metals is one of the leading exploration companies focused in the heart of British Columbia’s prolific Golden Triangle. The company’s highly qualified geological team has assembled a wealth of information, generated by numerous companies each working on small pieces, of the district-scale property that Enduro Metals has assembled through option and staking. Building on the prior results, the company’s geological team made several significant discoveries during its initial exploration program in 2019. A gold-rich copper porphyry outlined on the Burgundy Trend has striking similarities to large-scale deposits in the region, including the Red Chris deposit for which Newcrest last year paid U$804 million for a 70% interest. Chachi, a newly discovered area, generated high-grade samples, with associated geophysical responses, with gold, silver, copper, lead, zinc, nickel, and cobalt over a very large area. Diamond drilling in 2019 at the NW Zone demonstrated that the historic gold resource remains open laterally and to depth.
Work this year will seek to further extend the known gold deposit and to investigate the large-scale discovery potential of multiple targets and deposit types.
On Behalf of the Board of Directors,
ENDURO METALS CORP.
