| ||Emgold Mining Corporation (EMR-TSX Venture) is pleased to announce that it has commenced the 2004 exploration program on its Stewart/Jazz Property, located in the West Kootenay Region of southeastern British Columbia.|
The proposed two phase 2004 exploration program on the Stewart/Jazz property is designed to follow up pre-existing geological and geochemical targets by combining their results and trends with that of the newly acquired Fugro Surveys airborne magnetics and electromagnetic anomalies. Phase I will consist of mapping and sampling in areas with coincident anomalies with emphasis on target definition for follow up by the Phase II trenching and drilling program.
Estimated cost for Phase I is $30,000 and for Phase II is $400,000. Phase II will commence upon completion of Phase I and upon completion of financing. It is anticipated that Phase II will run from mid-July to October 2004.
