Victoria Gold (TSX: VGCX) this morning announced a maiden resource estimate for a deposit discovered on its property back in 2018. Referred to as the Raven Gold Deposit, the deposit is just 15 kilometres to the east of the firms Eagle Gold Mine.

The maiden resource estimate consists of 1,070,239 ounces of inferred gold, which is based on surface exploration and drilling conducted on the property from 2018 through to 2021. Data from the currently ongoing drill program at the deposit was not included in the estimate, with a total of 78 holes across 18,217 metres of drilling utilized to establish the resource.

Follow-up exploration was hampered by COVID, yet in three exploration seasons we have identified a significant Resource,” said CEO John McConnell.
