MegumaGold Corp (CNSX: NSAU; OTCMKTS: NSAUF) said it had expanded its landholdings in Nova Scotia to 268,847 acres, as it continues its goal to build the premier gold exploration opportunity in the developing Meguma belt.
Its 6,723 claims represent around 108,845 hectares, or equivalent to around 268,847 acres of exclusive exploration opportunities.
"Megumagold continues to expand its mineral tenure position in Nova Scotia with the objective to consolidate a prospective disseminated-gold district," said Regan Isenor, chief executive of Megumagold.
"We believe potential similarities to Nevada's Carlin gold district may present within Nova Scotia's Meguma gold district, and continue to be excited by the exploration potential available to our well-financed operations."
In today's update, the company also noted that it had recently completed what it believes to be one of the largest airborne programmes in Nova Scotia's recent exploration history.
Megumagold carried out a 12,342km aeromagnetic and radiometric survey, and acquired 1,110 sq km of light detection and ranging data.
Megumagold has now developed an exploration model for prospectively identifying gold targets.
