About Marathon Gold Corp.
Marathon is a gold exploration company rapidly advancing its 100-per-cent-owned Valentine Lake gold camp located in Newfoundland, one of the top mining jurisdictions in the world. The Valentine Lake gold camp currently hosts four near-surface, mainly pit-shell-constrained deposits with measured and indicated resources totalling 1,388,200 ounces of gold at 1.91 grams per tonne and inferred resources totalling 766,500 ounces of gold at 2.24 g/t. Gold mineralization has been traced down over 350 metres vertically at Leprechaun and almost a kilometre at Marathon. The four deposits outlined to date occur over a 20-kilometre system of gold-bearing veins, with much of the 24,000-hectare property having had little detailed exploration activity to date.
