Black Dragon Gold Corp. (ASX/TSX-V: BDG) (‘Black Dragon’ or the ‘Company’) is pleased to announce that it has received a 30 year extension on its Ampliacion a Figueras Mining Permit, and a 3 year extension to the Salave Investigation Permit, from the Government of Asturias.
As Black Dragon embarks on an expanded exploration program following the recent drilling results, the extension of the Investigation Permit is a significant achievement. The permit covers over 2,771 hectares primarily to the south of the current Salave deposit (See figure 1) where little or no exploration has been completed historically.
Black Dragons CEO & Managing Director commented, the extension of the permits is a great outcome for the company, and will allow us to expand our exploration program at Salave. The current mineral resource at Salave is confined to a 25ha area, and the Investigation Permit offers us over 2,771ha of unexplored ground. Our improved geological dataset will assist us to identify the potential for other deposits in this highly prospective region of Spain
