The property includes 24 patented mining claims and 70 unpatented mining claims covering 515 hectares. The patented claims that cover the mine workings have mineral and surface rights.

Marathon President/CEO Phillip Walford stated, “We had great success with this year’s drilling program at the Golden Chest Mine and we are pleased to be concluding this program on such a strong note. These final results reveal the presence of a new high-grade gold shoot and the extension of a longer interval that was discovered in May in the Katie and Dora area. Additionally, these concluding results demonstrate that there is the potential to increase the current open-pit resource. As the company’s focus is to generate value through resource expansion, the current resource estimate is being revised based on this year’s drilling results and is expected to be released in the fourth quarter of this year.”
