Under the terms of the option agreement between the parties, Excellon is the manager of the project and Centerra is the operator and currently funds all expenditures. “Oakley is a low-sulphidation, epithermal gold project with the potential for Carlin-style mineralization at depth, a similar setting to Liberty Gold’s Black Pine Project, 70 kilometres due east,” said Ben Pullinger, SVP Geology and Corporate Development. “Over the past year, we have been advancing the project with Centerra, collaboratively developing high-quality targets as they earn into their option on the project.
