TORONTO, CANADA, October 24, 2023 – McFarlane Lake Mining Limited (NEO: MLM) (OTCQB: MLMLF) (“McFarlane Lake” or “McFarlane” or “the Company”), a Canadian gold exploration and development company, today announced that it has initiated environmental baseline studies on its High Lake property to support future permitting efforts.
“The environmental studies at High Lake are an important step in advancing this high potential gold prospect,” said Roger Emdin, Chief Operating Officer of McFarlane Lake. “They will help us secure the permits required for future development while also ensuring we establish best practices in environmental stewardship. We look forward to completing this significant milestone.”
The environmental studies will begin with surface and groundwater sampling program and a species-at-risk study, followed by a preliminary geochemical characterization work in the new year to determine metals processing impact potential.
