The Preliminary Economic Assessment (“PEA”) study for Saddle North is currently on schedule for the fourth quarter of 2020. “The delivery of the geological model is another milestone for GT Gold and will form the foundation to support an initial resource estimate in the second quarter of this year,” said Paul Harbidge, President and CEO. Harbidge continued, “GT Gold is in a fortunate position having raised funds in December, which can support both field and office-based operations for an extended period. While the implementation of the 2020 field season is pending, GT Gold has the technical data required to advance the project work in terms of resource estimate, PEA preparation and exploration targeting.”The program for the 2020 field season has been planned and would typically commence towards the end of May. It will be executed depending on how the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds and will be implemented based on Federal, Provincial and Tahltan Nation guidelines.About GT GoldGT Gold Corp. is focused on exploring for base and precious metals in the geologically fertile terrain of British Columbia’s renowned Golden Triangle.
