ABOUT MARGAUX RESOURCES

Margaux Resources is focused on gold exploration within British Columbia.   The company has 2 important assets, the Cassiar Gold Project and the Sheep Creek Gold District.  Both are orogenic gold projects, similar to the Barkerville District of central British Columbia.

The Cassiar Gold Project is a large, advanced stage, road-accessible gold property. A NI 43-101-compliant resource estimate of 1M oz at 1.43 g/t Au for the Taurus bulk-tonnage gold deposit was completed in September 2019. The Property hosts several past-producing high-grade gold mines. There is upside potential for both bulk-tonnage and high-grade gold targets at the Property.

The Sheep Creek Gold District has historical production of almost 800,000 ounces gold from a series of high-grade veins, with minimal modern exploration.
