The E2Gold flagship Hawkins Project is ripe for discovery. Located in an emerging gold mining region, this early exploration project is surrounded by multiple new mining operations that have developed within the past decade — providing modern geological insight. The district-scale property package boasts multiple exploration fronts and is located along the Hemlo-Timmins geological trend.
With claims originally staked by Don McKinnon (co-discoverer of the Hemlo gold deposit), the Hawkins Project consists of 419 optioned claims and 2798 E2Gold Claims. The current focus of exploration activity is the McKinnon Deposit, which consists of the original McKinnon claims, along with the historical Shenango shafts.
The initial focus has been enlarging the McKinnon gold deposit with current Inferred Resource of 6.20 Mt at 1.65 g/t Au for 328,800 oz Au. Drilling targets include step-out at depth and off trend of the McKinnon deposit. New targets are actively being developed on the remainder of the 80 km long property package through mapping and geophysics.
The project is accessible year-round through paved roads, logging roads and railway lines. Located strategically near the Trans-Canada Highway and on the confluence of two active railway lines, the land consists of both semi-boggy and dry areas, allowing for year-round drilling.
