Earth Dragon is currently evaluating the development of a gold prospect in the Chunya Mining District of Tanzania. The property contains mineralized quartz veins averaging 100cm in thickness, with a shear zone as wide as 10m.

In Ghana, 35 people are presently engaged in excavating and sampling gold targets on the Concession focusing on previously identified hard rock vein deposits as an ongoing part of the Phase 1 Exploration Program at the Nkwanta Concession. The Company looks forward to the receipt of detailed assay results which are anticipated next week.
