Edgemont Gold Corp. (CSE: EDGM | FRA: EG8) is a new gold exploration company focused on the Dungate copper-gold porphyry project located 6km south of Houston in northern British Columbia, Canada, in a region with a history of successful mining projects, including the Equity Silver Mine, Imperial Metals' Huckleberry Mine, and the more recent gold-silver discovery at Sun Summit Minerals' Buck Project which sits just 7 km to the south. The project has excellent infrastructure in place and is workable year-round.
The project hosts compelling targets identified by magnetic and IP surveys and mineralization at depth confirmed by historic drilling. The only deep hole (333 m) ever drilled on the property (in 1975) intercepted 142 m of chalcopyrite at bottom of the hole.
Edgemont successfully completed the Phase 1 drill program at the Dungate project in October 2021. Results are pending on the 7 hole, 3,429-metre program.
