His appointment comes just as the company released drill results from last year’s exploration at the flagship Gold Drop project in British Columbia, which included 12.6 grams per tonne of gold over 0.3 meter in a hole in the Perky vein.
“The Greenwood area has a rich and successful mining history, and I am excited to continue to advance and develop the Gold Drop property and realize its full potential, as Chairman of GGX Gold Corp. (TSX-V:GGX),” Field-Dyte said in a statement, “With an exploration plan and team in place, I look forward to the next drill program which is expected to begin within the next two months. ”
He added that the company “will also be evaluating other precious metals assets in the region to enhance shareholder value.”
