GGX Gold Corp (CVE:GGX) has reported further progress at its Gold Drop property in southern British Columbia - as it has brought in an excavator for a trenching programme.
The machine will be used during the on-going diamond drill programme to expand the trenches at both the COD and Everest veins, which are currently being drilled, at the site.
The permit allows for an additional 850 meters of trenching in the Gold Drop Southwest zone.
As reported earlier this month, 30 holes have now been completed during the current 2018 diamond drill programme testing the COD Vein, totaling 2,020 metres (2,209 yards).
Trenching will target gold soil geochemical anomalies, which were identified during the 2017 survey.
These included high values of 0.061, 0.073 and 0.088 ppm (parts per million) gold.
Soil samples were collected along 31 soil lines and the programme extended the target area for at least 600 metres northeast.
The programme also identified other gold anomalies near the new COD adit and northeast of the COD trenches, now referred to as the COD North.
GGX Gold Corp shares stand at C$0.12 at the time of writing.
