EnGold drilling delayed to September 14th due to fire hazard
Friday, Sep 08, 2017
David H. Brett, President & CEO, EnGold Mines Ltd., reports that due to hot, dry weather conditions and related extreme fire danger ratings near the Company's Lac La Hache project area, EnGold has delayed it's planned September 7th drilling resumption by one week to September 14th, 2017, subject to further monitoring of relevant fire data. To remain in compliance with the BC Wildfire Act, high risk activities such as drilling must cease after three consecutive days of level 5 fire danger ratings near its operations, and this situation has occurred this week. Available weather forecasts predict rain in the region this week, and danger class ratings are expected to drop in the near future. In compliance with the Wildfire Act and in keeping with prudent safety policies, EnGold has decided to wait for several days of improved conditions prior to restart.

"Fire activity in the Cariboo unexpectedly picked up recently, but we are hopeful that the predicted cooler, wetter conditions will soon provide the region with much needed relief" said EnGold President & CEO David H Brett. "Safety is our top priority and EnGold is fortunate that fall conditions at Lac La Hache are typically ideal for mineral exploration."
