Provenance Gold Obtains Eldorado Drilling Permit

April 19, 2023 - Provenance Gold Corp. (CSE: PAU) (OTCQB: PVGDF) (the “Company” or “Provenance”) is pleased to announce that it has received the final drill permit from Oregon’s Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI) for drilling of its Eldorado gold property in Malheur County, Oregon.  The project is located in sparsely populated sagebrush desert in mining friendly Eastern Oregon.  The Company had previously received permitting approval by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), on whose land the project is situated.

Provenance plans to start its drilling program this spring, subject to field conditions following an unusually cold and snowy late winter, and subject to the timing of mobilizing the drill rig.

“This is a very positive step for Provenance,” said Project Manager Steven Craig.   “This is already a major gold system with excellent characteristics and metallurgy for a near-surface bulk gold system, but additionally, our review of historical data has established that the property has major expansion potential. We now look forward to confirming that potential.”

About Eldorado

The Eldorado gold property hosts a large near-surface gold system with strong growth potential.  The gold system was historically explored with 242 drill holes and accompanying preliminary metallurgy studies.  Provenance’s study of the historical work discovered significant room for expansion of the already sizeable gold system.  Historical metallurgy also suggested that the gold is unusually amenable to recovery, even by non-chemical methods.

Provenance’s upcoming drilling program is designed to confirm the historic drilling and the Company’s new gold system model.
