“The award of this contract to GRES is a major milestone in the steps required to bring the Davyhurst Project back into opetation. We expect to be pouring gold early during the first quarter of 2017. The award of this contract, together with the drilling we have conducted on our large tenement footprint, augers well for the future of the company,” Eastern Goldfields Executive Chairman Michael Fotios said.
