Eagle Plains Resources (EPL.V) has mobilized a drill crew to start a 5-7 hole drill program on its Donna gold project, which is located about 60 kilometers east of Vernon. Eagle Plains is planning to complete about 1,500 meters of drilling (indicating the average depth of the holes will be around 200-300 meters) to drill-test a prominent gold in soil geochemical anomaly. This will also be the very first drill program ever in the vicinity of the Morgan mine workings.
This drill program is basically a continuation of the fall 2020 drill program which had to be suspended due to the sudden onset of winter conditions as a snow storm hit the property. We hope to see initial drill results in August.
