Group Ten Metals Inc. said April 6 that it acquired an undivided 100% interest in five mining claims at its Black Lake-Drayton gold project in northwestern Ontario, via staking.
The 928-hectare land package increases the company's total land position in the highly prospective region to about 8,900 hectares.
The Black Lake-Drayton project includes an archive database with 20 historic occurrences. About 43% of past drill holes intercepted gold or copper mineralization.
Group Ten conducted a seven-hole, 530-meter drill program in late 2016, as the first phase of a larger 2,000-meter drill program. Results are expected to be released in April and will provide additional guidance for future exploration.
The newly acquired claims are adjacent to First Mining Finance Corp.'s Goldlund gold project.
