Kaminak Gold Corporation is pleased to announce that the Company was honoured this week with the prestigious J.C. Sproule Northern Exploration Award by the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM).
The award recognizes Kaminak's exploration success and the continuing delineation of mineral resources at the Company's Coffee Gold Project located in the Yukon Territory of Canada. Founded in 1898, the CIM is the leading technical society of professionals in the Canadian minerals, metals, materials and energy industries.
Eira Thomas, CEO, commented, "Kaminak is very proud to have been selected as the recipient of the J.C. Sproule Northern Exploration Award by the CIM, recognizing success in northern mineral exploration and development. Coffee was discovered in 2010 and through the vision, hard work and dedication of the Kaminak Team, has been advanced to become a multi-million ounce gold resource in a few short years. We look forward to another banner year in 2014 as we work to deliver our first Preliminary Economic Assessment at Coffee, and continue to evaluate priority targets that have the potential to contribute additional near-surface oxide ounces."
