Frontline Announces Commencement of Drilling at its Menderes Gold Project, Located in SW Region of Turkey
The drilling program at Menderes will concentrate on the southeastern strike extension of the Kokarpinar vein system with current inferred resources of 2.3Mt grading 6.64 gpt Au for 491,000 ounces of gold (43-101 Technical Report, Eldorado Gold, 2019). Drilling by Eldorado Gold has been testing for the Kokarpinar extension within 20-100m of Frontlines property boundary.
The program will initially consist of a 1,000 metres and it will test a few Priority 1 epithermal gold targets including a drill hole that will test for the extension of the upper epithermal Kokarpinar gold-bearing vein of Eldorado Gold's Efemcukuru Gold Mine Complex adjacent to Frontline's permit boundary to the west. The P13 target is approximately 20 metres from the Frontline-Eldorado mutual boundary.
Menderes Gold Property Highlights
Frontline, through it's 100% owned Turkish subsidiary, holds the Menderes Gold Project, a 6,194 ha (62 km2) contiguous land package located near the village of Efemcukuru, located only 20 km from the provincial capital of Izmir, Western Turkey. The permits that make up the Menderes Gold Project were acquired for their excellent potential to host intermediate sulphidation epithermal gold-bearing vein systems similar to those found within Eldorado Gold's Efemcukuru gold mine. Production forecast for 2021 at the Efemcukuru gold mine is 110,000 ounces of gold at a grade of 6.6 gpt Au (https://www.eldoradogold.com) (Figure 1).
