News and Events


In November 2018, 2 field trips were made to Romeo & Juliet gold mine, Baie Verte. Two pilot holes were drilled for further research target. Group members cooperated with Anaconda mining and the drilling company crew and gained a lot of field experience. Members also worked hard in the heavy snow and cold wind. Although the field trip is kind of tough, the tasks were accomplished, and the scenery was beautiful!
