Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – February 28, 2018) – Pancontinental Gold Corporation (TSXV: PUC) (“Pancontinental” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the launch of a new, upgraded web site and an updated corporate presentation to reflect the Company’s expansion into key battery metals — cobalt, nickel and copper — in addition to gold. The web site domain remains www.pancongold.com, and the new presentation is available for viewing or download from the web site.
Pancontinental recently announced its option agreement, effective January 10, 2018, to acquire a 100% interest in the Montcalm West Nickel-Copper-Cobalt Project, located in the Porcupine Mining Division, approximately 65 kilometers northwest of Timmins, Ontario, Canada.
“Pancontinental’s goal is to become a leading battery metals and gold explorer,” said CEO Layton Croft. “We are pursuing four objectives to achieve that goal:
- Capitalize on our experienced and successful technical team.
- Focus on cobalt, nickel, copper and gold, all in or entering bull markets.
- Acquire properties with established resources and/or in close proximity to producing or former mines in proven mining districts.
- Target projects in low-risk North American locations with pro-mining local governments and communities, and excellent local infrastructure and labour supply.
Our new web site and corporate presentation provide more information about our Company’s capability and plans for implementing these objectives to achieve our goal,” Croft said.
