Pacton Gold Inc. will begin a new expansion drill program at the Sidace JV project in Red Lake, while continuing field work at its separate Red Lake exploration project. Pacton and JV partner, Evolution Mining (60.5% interest), have approved a $2.44 million exploration program that includes 11,500 m of drilling, together with re-logging and re-sampling historic drill core and geophysics. Both Pacton and Evolution Mining will be contributing to the program budget, and Pacton will run the program as Operator.
