Portofino’s Recent Activities
The Company has been highly active through the past months with exploration being undertaken at each of its four gold properties in northwestern Ontario. At the Gold Creek claims in the Matawin gold belt south of Shebandowan, our geological team has been following up on the targets delineated by our recent airborne geophysical survey. Several occurrences were located, mapped and sampled with more than 160 samples shipped for analyses. Closer to the developing Atikokan gold camp, Portofino’s team has completed preliminary exploration on its Sapawe West and Melema West projects, including prospecting, geochemical rock, soil and lake sediment sampling and sampling of all noted mineral occurrences – some of which may constitute new discovery showings. Currently, our geologists are working near Red Lake, Ontario, on the South of Otter project where they are undertaking additional rock sampling and conducting a soil sampling program on a targeted grid to assist in the next steps planning of a diamond drill program.
David Tafel commented, “We look forward to receiving sample assay results from the lab and will report results of our exploration work as they becomes available. We believe that our portfolio of prospective gold projects has excellent potential.”
