Gowest will use the funds to complete its bulk sample at the Bradshaw Gold deposit and move towards full production.
 
“We are extremely pleased to have Fortune Future express their support for our company and our team through this further investment, as well as for the support that our shareholders have shown in their approval of this transaction,” said Greg Romain, Gowest’s President and CEO. “With these funds, we expect to be able to complete the bulk sample at the Bradshaw Gold deposit as we continue to progress towards our goal of building the next new gold mine in the Timmins camp."
