Prioritizing Elephant Mt. gold targets

Endurance Gold Corp. June 11 said the summer 2015 exploration program at its Elephant Mountain gold property in Interior Alaska has begun.

Previous exploration has confirmed an intrusive-hosted target encompassing two gold-arsenic soil and rock sample anomalies (the North and South Zone targets) and an induced polarization chargeability anomaly (the Central Zone target) lying between the two soil anomalies that has never been drill tested.

Elephant Mountain is located in an active placer gold mining region about 76 miles (123 kilometers) west of Fairbanks and can be accessed by road and all-terrane vehicle trails from the mining community of Eureka.

Crews are currently clearing access trails from Eureka, which will be followed by the auger drilling program.
