Group Ten CEO Michael Rowley commented, "The Ontario Prospectors Association and the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation have done great work in bringing back a grant program of this type. The high-grade targets on our Black Lake-Drayton gold project are fully permitted and the extra funding will allow us to accomplish significantly more in our work there."
Drill targeting work announced March 7, 2016 proposed a 20-hole, 2,000-metre drill program to test high-grade mineralized shoots in the Moretti area of the Black Lake project which yielded historic bulk samples of 18.65g/t Au average in 4,087kg and 14.10g/t Au average in 8,069kg (historic data not independently verified by Group Ten).
