White Gold exploration techniques cover large areas quickly and safely

One of the things that makes the company so unique and special is the way it conducts its exploration work. Company co-founder, chief technical advisor and director Shawn Ryan has been prospecting for gold in the region for over 20 years. Ryan has developed a “Drones to Drills” program using technology licensed from Ground Truth Exploration Inc. that incorporates historical data, unique methods of deeper soil sampling and advanced LIDAR surveys.

This process allows the company to explore a large area very quickly, safely and economically. The company often uses efficient and cost effective compressed air (RAB) rotary drilling in its white gold district projects, as well as follow-up RC or diamond drilling, as needed, to verify grades and the width of the ore. RAB drills use compressed air and can reach depths of 100 m. The technique does not require water, which makes it cheaper to use and more environmentally friendly.

Regarding White Gold’s long-term outlook for the White Gold District, CEO D’Onofrio said that “as an exploration company, the ideal vision and dream for the company would be to continue to own the district, to make discoveries and monetize them on an individual basis to maximize prospective value. “

D’Onofrio noted that exploration companies such as White Gold are generally able to get the most value by making new discoveries and that it is best to leave the construction of mines to developers who have a business model. and a totally different level of expertise. Put simply, D’Onofrio said, “This is not what our company is designed for. We want to be a generator of projects. We have this asset that is ours, and I think we can continue to make discoveries and sell them to other people. to be put into production for decades to come. “

When asked what sets the company and the White Gold District apart from other mining and local companies, D’Onofrio said he thought from an investor’s perspective: “White gold seems to tick all the boxes. boxes”.
