WATCH: MetalNRG targeting 'material and early revenues' at Gold Ridge in Arizona

“The ultra high grade sample from the pillar boulder, at 115 ounces per tonne, is an indication of the potentially high grade gold retained in the pillars, and as a near term revenue source pillar processing conducted safely could provide a material and early revenue stream for the Company which we are keen to establish”, Rolf Gerritsen, MetalNRG’s chief executive said in the statement.

MetalNRG is now implementing a fast track review to confirm gold mineralisation at the project, which it said, “may provide an additional, potentially significant and relatively near term revenue opportunity”.
