Marathon Gold Corporation (MGC) is continuing to advance its 100% owned Valentine Lake gold project, which hosts four near-surface gold resources. The Research & Development Corporation (RDC) is supporting MGC’s efforts to identify and locate the distribution and geometry of gold-bearing quartz-tourmaline-pyrite vein structures by investing in an R&D project to investigate the applicability and effectiveness of novel 3D and 4D ultra high-resolution seismic imaging technology. The path to discovery and delineation of a major resource deposit is expensive and can require many years of work. In an effort to potentially reduce the time and cost involved in resource detection, MGC will investigate the ability of new acoustic earth-probing technology to accelerate the discovery of areas with high potential for gold mineralization. This will allow the company to proceed with more targeted diamond drilling, potentially decreasing the cost and time of discovery for new deposits.
