VANCOUVER, July 10, 2017 /CNW/ - David H. Brett, President & CEO, EnGold Mines Ltd., (TSX-V: EGM, "EnGold" or the "Company") reports that due to extreme forest fire activity in the Cariboo region of British Columbia, the Company has shut down all exploration activity on its Lac La Hache Property (the "Property"). While the Company is aware of no fires burning on the Property itself, heavy smoke, closed roads and intermittent power outages have made continued operations unsafe and unworkable. The town of Lac La Hache, where the Company's exploration office and workshop is located, is currently on evacuation alert. During the last 24 hours, the town of 100 Mile House, 26 kilometres south of Lac La Hache, was placed under evacuation order.
"EnGold's board and management express their heartfelt concern for the residents of the region, including members of its staff and contractor workforce, seriously affected by this crisis," said EnGold President & CEO David Brett. "EnGold is closely monitoring the fluid status of the fires in the area."
