SolGold has provided an update on the Company's regional exploration programme throughout Ecuador. Following the hiatus of all activities due to the COVID-19 pandemic and government restrictions, SolGold has resumed exploration activities on a number of concessions with strict COVID-19 protocols in place. SolGold CEO Nicholas Mather said "SolGold's comprehensive tenure position across the productive metallogenic belts of Ecuador from north to south in our four operational subsidiaries provides the platform for the discovery of a pipeline of wholly owned and significant copper gold porphyry deposits. We believe that this strategy will see SolGold ultimately emerge as one of the world's premier copper gold miners."
