Advance Gold Corp. (TSXV: AAX) ("Advance Gold" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that Gennen McDowall is joining the Company as a geophysical advisor. Mr. McDowall is a geophysicist with over 40 years of international mining exploration experience. He holds a first-class honours degree in Geophysics from the University of British Columbia. His experience includes the design, execution and interpretation of numerous induced polarization surveys throughout the world. He was instrumental in the discovery of the Robijn gold deposit in the southern Free State in South Africa while working for Anglo American Corporation as a divisional geophysicist. Mr. McDowall assisted in the interpretation of the recent Tabasquena geophysical survey and in designing the second phase geophysical survey.
Advance Gold has just completed a 3D induced polarization (IP) survey at its Tabasquena gold and silver project. This survey identified a large continuous chargeability anomaly just below an area of widespread gold and silver mineralization in epithermal veins. A second phase, 3D induced polarization survey has been planned to expand the survey grid as the chargeability anomaly remains open to the north, south and at depth.
Allan Barry Laboucan, President and CEO of Advance Gold Corp. commented: “For almost 20 years I’ve had the benefit of Gennen McDowall as a mentor to help educate me in geophysics and I’m very happy to have him join our team, to give Advance Gold advice on our geophysical work as well as other areas. His advice will be crucial as we move the Tabasquena gold and silver project forward. He will also assist in the geophysical work planned at the Venaditas project. I’ve been very fortunate to have had excellent mentors in exploration during my career and I think the timing to bring Gennen McDowall to our team is ideal”.
Gennen McDowall commented: “I have been following the company’s work at Tabasquena for some time now and also made a site visit in 2018. The recent IP survey has outlined an anomaly that is quite remarkable in its size and continuity and I hope the follow up work will identify a number of relatively shallow borehole locations. I look forward to working with Advance Gold on this project.”
