Alamos Gold Acquires Trillium Mining Consolidating Large Land Package Adjacent to Island Gold Mine - Seite 2
The larger consolidated land package will allow for Alamos to apply a systematic, district scale approach to exploration with targeting based on greenstone belt scale structural and stratigraphic controls on gold mineralization.
Included within the Trillium land package is the Highland Property which is in the final year of a five year option agreement. Following the exercise of the option, expected on February 26, 2021, Alamos will own 100% of the Highland Property.
“The acquisition of Trillium is consistent with our strategy of consolidating prospective land in proximity to our Island Gold mine where we have had tremendous exploration success over the last several years. Island Gold’s Mineral Reserve and Resource base has more than doubled since 2017. We see excellent potential for this growth to continue given ongoing exploration success. The acquisition of these claims ensure we maintain full ownership over future growth of the existing deposit and regionally where there have been a number of high-grade gold occurrences including two past producing mines,” said John A. McCluskey, President and Chief Executive Officer.
