Endurance Gold Corporation (EDG -- TSX.V) announces that, weather conditions allowing, it will immediately commence a detailed 1:20,000 scale aerial survey of the Pardo Property, located 65 kilometres northeast of Sudbury, in east-central Ontario. The survey will provide high resolution colour aerial photography, produce an orthophoto base map, and provide a detailed 1:2000 scale digital elevation map with 2 metre contours. This data will be used to establish the reliable elevation controls necessary to better understand the extent and distribution of gold mineralization within the flat lying Proterozoic aged basal conglomerates at Pardo. The most recent drilling program, which returned values to 1.67 gpt over 8.40 metres from the conglomerate, pointed to the necessity of detailed property scale elevation data, in order to plan future drilling. Anomalous gold mineralization associated with the flat lying basal conglomerate has been identified to date over a surface area measuring 4 kilometres by 2 kilometres, or 800 hectares, only a small portion of which has been adequately tested.
Due to extreme backlogs in most laboratories throughout Canada, the Company is still awaiting the complete results of an extensive humus sampling survey on the property, as well as additional screen fire metallic and complete cyanidation results from the July drilling program. Results will be announced when received.
On the company's 100% owner Turner Property, located 40 kilometres northwest of Pardo, and covering a similar geological environment, Endurance recently completed a reconnaissance prospecting and sampling program over historically documented uraniferous conglomerates, as well as adjacent gold targets associated with Archean banded iron formation. Sample results will be released when received.
