A recent article in the Northern Miner newspaper had the headline, “High-Grade Grab Samples Propel BC Gold Shares.”
It’s good to see a renewed interest and activity at the old mine, located 32 kilometres west of Atlin, in northwestern BC.
It “has given the junior’s stock a big lift,” according to the Northern Miner’s March article.
“The historic Engineer mine produced about 18,000 ounces of gold and 9,000 ounces of silver from the mid-1920s to the early 1930s.”
I think it’s great to see another northwestern mine come back to life.
