Maple Gold is in the process of implementing a number of cost-cutting measures given the current market environment. The Company will provide an update on cost reductions in the coming weeks. Maple Gold expects to report additional drill results from the Douay Gold Project shortly. The Company has experienced longer than anticipated turnaround times on assay results to-date, but expects a steady flow of assay results throughout June and July as additional results are received and interpreted.
Maple Gold´s President and CEO, Matthew Hornor, stated: "The market conditions and current Maple Gold share price have both softened recently, but we remain very optimistic about creating shareholder value going forward. The Douay Gold Project hosts a significant gold resource in one of the world´s premier mining jurisdictions with excellent infrastructure and exploration upside. We´ve been very pleased with the discovery of new gold zones and early returns from the recently completed drill program. We still have a significant number of assays to report through June and July and remain on track to complete an updated resource estimate toward year´s end."
Hornor added: "The Company recently attracted local institutional investors from Quebec approximately two months ago and we continue to have ongoing discussions with other major institutions and mining companies that recognize the opportunity to create meaningful long-term value at Douay."
