Vancouver, B.C. - TheNewswire - September 11, 2019. Engineer Gold Mines Ltd. (TSXV:EAU) ("Engineer Gold", or the "Company") announces that surface diamond drilling continues on the Engineer Gold Property, situated 32 km southwest of Atlin, B.C. The Company has completed 5 drill holes to date, totalling 671.4 meters. Four shallow holes have been completed on the Jersey Lilly Vein and the Company is drilling the second of 4 holes (Drill hole 19DDH-ENG006) targeting a number of coincidental gold-silver-arsenic-antimony MMI soil anomalies and a magnetic high geophysical anomaly proximal to the Shear A structure 300 metres northeast and 400 metres east of the Jersey Lilly Vein drill holes. Drill hole assays will be reported when available.
Mine dewatering continues at Engineer Gold Mine, with the water level now 10 metres above Level 8. The Company is dewatering the mine to provide access for deeper underground exploration, diamond drilling, development, test mining and bulk sampling. The lowermost mine Level 8, which accesses the Engineer, Double Decker, Jersey Lilly gold veins and the Shear A and B structures, has been flooded since the Engineer Gold Mine ceased commercial production in the late 1920's.
Engineer also announces it has granted 1,300,000 stock options with an exercise price of $0.15 to directors, officers employees and consultants for a period of two years from the date of the grant.
