Q-Gold Resources Ltd. said its Arizona subsidiary, Mineral Creek Resources Inc. (MCR), has signed a contract with Major Drilling America Inc., to drill the initial phase of MCR's Green Mohave 2 mining claim near Crown King.
Drilling is scheduled to start in early June once repairs to access roads are complete. The initial 875-yard phase of a planned 2,187-yard drilling program will test the highly conductive air and ground geophysical anomaly at a site designated as Anomaly A. Additional drilling may occur based on findings after the first phase.
Q-Gold holds 12 other Bureau of Land Management mining claims in the Peck Mining District near Crown King, half of which contain geophysical anomalies revealed by an airborne survey. Although these additional anomalies are not as large as the one on the Green Mohave 2 claim, additional surveys will be conducted at the sites.
Q-Gold is a publicly traded Canadian mineral-exploration company currently searching for precious and base metals on its Ontario and Arizona prospects.
