Claude Lemasson, President and CEO of Eastmain Resources, tells us about their aggressive exploration strategy for gold exploration in James Bay, Quebec. They have 11 properties and are steadily advancing 3 active projects. With a strong treasury, a great land position and mining friendly jurisdiction, Eastmain is positioned to complete its 75,000 meters company-wide 2016-1Q2017 exploration program, setting the building blocks in place to complete both a mineral resource update followed by a Preliminary Economic Assessment in Q4 2017 at the Clearwater Project.

Interview with Nigel Lees, President and CEO Sage Gold Inc. (TSX-V: SGX): A Canadian Near-Term Gold Producer
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


Sage Gold Inc. (TSX-V: SGX) is a Canadian near-term producer and mineral exploration and development company, with two key assets in Ontario: the 100% owned Clavos Gold property in Timmins and the 100% owned Onaman property in the Beardmore-Geraldton Gold Camp. We learned from Nigel Lees, who is president and CEO of Sage Gold, that they are one of the few companies to put a Canadian gold deposit in production this year. Clavos is a mine-ready project that will be operating once Sage finishes de-watering it. They expect this to happen in the latter part of the third quarter of 2017. At the same time, Sage is continuing the exploration at Clavos and they are optimistic they can develop a high grade zone below the current workings at a lower level. Mr. Lees believes this is going to be a very exciting year: the capex is extremely low, the grade is reasonably good, and he thinks that the risks are pretty low because there's a lot of infrastructure already there.
