Canada’s Globex Mining Enterprises has expanded its portfolio by acquiring the former Eldrich Gold Mine in the north-west of Rouyn-Noranda and the Porcupine West Gold property in Quebec from Iamgold.

In return, Globex has transferred its Rich Lake and Lac à l’Eau Jaune (gold) properties to IAMGOLD.

Both companies will retain a 1% net smelter royalty in their respective traded properties.

The Eldrich Gold Mine, located 14km north-west of Rouyn-Noranda, has a rich history of gold mining, with significant resources reported in the past. It has eight claims covering 235.55ha.

Globex plans to reassess the exploration and economic potential of the property, considering the substantial increase in the price of gold since the last study.

The Porcupine West property in Hebecourt Township, Quebec, includes 89 claims spanning 4,711.27ha.

This property has seen extensive drilling and geophysical surveys, indicating its potential for gold exploration.

In March this year, Globex acquired 24 unpatented lode claims covering a total surface area of 200.67ha in Mohave County, north-western Arizona, US, through staking.

The property, called Salt Spring Project, was staked to encompass numerous gold-bearing quartz veins, along with small historic mine workings and prospects.

The project area is located at the northernmost margin of the historic Gold Basin Mining District, which spans approximately 18km (11.18 miles) north-south and 7–11km (6.84 miles) east-west.

Meanwhile, IAMGOLD was recently in the news for arranging $300m in funding to regain a stake in the Côté Gold Mine.
