Hecla Mining to kick off exploration at Opinaca gold property

Everton Resources Inc. said Jan. 23 that Hecla Mining Co. plans to undertake a C$925,000 exploration program on the Opinaca B gold property in Quebec.

The 2017 program comprising a ground magnetic and electromagnetic survey followed by 2,500 meters of diamond drilling will focus on the Dominic area and Fishhook structure, which have strong potential for gold discoveries.

Hecla has an option to earn a 50% interest in Opinaca B from Everton and Azimut Exploration Inc. by incurring C$6 million in work expenditure. Hecla expects to complete the expenditure by November.
