- The Wels Project now covers approximately 6500 ha of prospective ground.
The Wels Project now consists of 313 quartz claims including the newly staked 26 claims on the eastern edge of the property (Figure 1). The additional claims comprise of an area of ~550 ha which brings the total Wels land package to 313 quartz claims and 6500 ha. These new claims were staked on the assessment of anomalous rock grab and soil data analyzed by K2 in 2017 and cover the strike extent of new anomalous target areas including Chai as well as the eastern strike extent of the Saddle.
Jo Price, VP Exploration commented, “The Wels project represents a large, prospective opportunity and we are excited to continue vectoring into potential higher-grade gold mineralization as we develop our knowledge of the geology and structural setting. The additional land position solidifies our current property position and provides significant exploration “buffer” around known zones and targets”
