We also became the first Quebec mineral exploration company to obtain certification for UL 2723: ECOLOGO Certification Program for Mineral Exploration Companies, a new standard launched by AEMQ in November 2019 to recognize and promote environmental, social and economic best practices. This recognition by AEMQ is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire team as well as our commitment to the highest environmental and social standards as we continue to advance the Troilus Gold project.”Award recipients are selected by a committee reporting to AEMQ’s Board of Directors, who make their selections based on an evaluation of the work, projects and research carried out during the year by AEMQ’s corporate members.XPLOR 2020 Virtual ConferenceThe award recipients will be announced at next week’s XPLOR 2020 virtual conference, which you can register for at the following link: https://xplor.aemq.org/en/We encourage you to tune into a presentation about the Troilus Gold Project by our Senior Vice-President of Exploration, Blake Hylands and Chief Geologist Bertrand Brassard, on October 21, 2020 at 3:10pm.About Troilus Gold Corp.Troilus is a Toronto-based, Quebec focused, advanced stage exploration and early-development company focused on the mineral expansion and potential mine re-start of the former gold and copper Troilus mine.
