Grande Portage Resources (GPG, GPTRF) has announced it has begun the baseline environmental sampling at its Herbert Gold Project in Alaska.

The company has enlisted Admiralty Environmental, Core Geoscience and Jade North in order to oversee collecting the baseline data, which includes acid/base accounting,  water and air quality among other things.

“These long lead data points are required of any evolving future mining asset and are critical in de-risking the project,” Ian Klassen, president and CEO of Grande Portage Resources, said in a statement. “While it is impossible to confirm the direction of any environmental assessment until the size parameters and scope of a project is fully defined, the baseline data required for any EA or EIS will include the data being acquired.”

Located in the historic Juneau Gold Belt in southeast Alaska, The Herbert Gold Project is an exploration stage, high-grade mineralized mesothermal quartz vein system. 

The project contains 91 unpatented lode claims and covers six parallel vein structures exposed at surface. 

Last year the company drilled 8,375 metres with two drill drigs and finished 21 holes in the NOrth vein Goat, Sleeping Giant, Ridge, Main, DEep Trench and Elusive veins. 

Headquartered in Vancouver, BC, Grande Portage Resources is a mineral exploration company focused on its 100 per cent owned Herbert Gold property. 

Shares of the company rose 5.26 per cent to C$0.30 as of 11:07 am EDT.
