Bay Roberts, NL based private junior resource company has been invited to display drill core at the up-coming Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada Convention to be held in Toronto, Canada, March 5 – 9th, 2017. The drill core will be on display in the core shack section of the convention where the latest mineral discoveries from around the world will be highlighted.
The PDAC Convention is regarded as the premier international event for the global mineral industry with drill core displayed from new discoveries all over the world being one of the highlights of the convention. In recent years the convention annually has attracted more than 25,000 people from 125 countries. Puddle Pond is very pleased to have this opportunity to display at this internationally important convention. The PDAC selects project drill core for display on the basis of the importance of the discovery and the company notes that drill core from the exciting Heritage Gold – Silver Project at Point May, NL is only 1 of 2 core displays from eastern Canada.
Puddle Pond also reports that the Heritage Project has received other international and national recognitions. At the recent 2016 Annual Meeting of the United States Geological Survey (USGS) held last fall in Denver, Colorado, USA, Project Geologist Greg Woodland presented a poster and technical information display at this international meeting. The Northern Miner, Canada’s mining newspaper has also referenced Puddle Pond’s Heritage Project in a 2016 publication. This is a noteworthy reference as the Northern Miner does not normally acknowledge projects operated by junior exploration companies which are private and not trading on a public stock exchange.
Chairman and CEO, Dr. David Strong states this recognition demonstrates the Heritage Gold – Silver Project is gaining prominence. Adding to the importance of the Heritage Project is the mineral inventory estimate of 76,074 ounces of Equivalent Gold (gold + silver expressed as gold) just compiled by P & E Mining Consultants Inc., a global consulting firm. The focus of the 2017 exploration program will be to establish an NI 43-101 compliant resource at the Eagle Zone, 1 of 18 prospects now identified on the Heritage Project, 2 of which were discovered in 2016 (Ref Press Release December 8, 2016).
These latest developments on the Heritage Project together with the objectives for ongoing exploration will be detailed on Puddle Pond’s website at www.puddlepondresources.com currently being re-designed for launching and viewing within the next couple of weeks.
The technical information in this release was compiled by President & COO Victor A. French, P. Geo who is a qualified person under NI 43-101 guidelines.
