The Vancouver-based explorer told shareholders it is planning to begin gravity and geophysical surveys on the prospect to help define more drill targets.

According to Japan Gold, outcropping at Kitano-o implies that the epithermal system on the property is preserved

The company is targeting zones where it believes most of the gold resides, the firm added.

The Kitano-o prospect is a large swath of land that houses six historic gold mines which produced over 96,000 ounces of gold averaging a grade of 5.9 grams per ton

Japan Gold is currently drill testing similar targets across the central and west areas of the Kitano-o property with a 3,000 metre program that commenced last week.

Shares of Japan Gold eased 1.7% on Monday afternoon to C$0.30.
