About BCGold

BCGold is a Vancouver-based junior resource company focused on copper and gold exploration in underexplored, historic and emerging mining districts in British Columbia and Yukon. The Company acquires and develops conceptual, early and mid-stage exploration opportunities and advances them towards resource

BCGold’s primary gold asset is the 100% owned, historic high-grade gold Engineer Mine property, situated 32 km southwest of Atlin, B.C. At Engineer Mine, the Company is uniquely positioned and fully permitted for small-scale mining and on-site milling. In 2011 the Company successfully mined and milled 246 tonnes of veinmaterial from the Engineer Vein on Level 5 and produced and monetized 800 kg of gravity concentrate for a return of $US107,000. This bulk sampling program identified 2 accessible high-grade gold exploration targets on the Engineer Vein between 5 and 8 Levels. Subsequent mine de-watering, geological mapping and panel sampling in 2012 confirmed the existence of these two exploration targets on 6 and 7 Levels, and re-established a third that was cut off by a dyke on 5 Level.

BCGold is seeking the means to finance a $2 million seasonal mining and on-site milling operation at Engineer Mine, mining up to 15,000 tonnes of mineralized material and producing between 7,000 to 10,500 ounces of gold in concentrate.* The Company is aggressively marketing this opportunity to qualified investors and mining groups. The current U.S. currency exchange rate and lower fuel prices allow for small, high-grade gold mines in Canada, such as Engineer Mine, to continue to represent excellent investment opportunities.

*Readers are cautioned that the Company has not completed a pre-feasibility or feasibility study which establishes mineral reserves with demonstrated economic and technical viability. Further, the Company cautions readers that any potential production may not be economically feasible and historically projects taken to production without establishing reserves through a feasibility study have a much higher risk of economic or technical failure.
