Montreal, Quebec — Beauce Gold Fields (Champs D’Or en Beauce) (TSXV: ¨BGF¨), (“BGF”): In order to protect the environment and the rights of private property owners, the company is issuing a formal notice that it will not tolerate trespassing gold prospectors or any illegal mining activities on claims owned by the company.
Patrick Levasseur, President and CEO of Beauce Gold Fields said, “I can relate to the passion prospectors have for gold but you just can’t prospect or work on claims that don’t belong to you.” Mr. Levasseur added: “All our exploration work is done with the upmost respect to the environment and to private property therefore we cannot tolerate any illegal activities on our claims. You will be exposing yourself to civil lawsuits under the Civil Code, applicable regulations and even criminal prosecutions.”
Social media has popularized the historical fact that gold can be found throughout southern Quebec in many brooks, rivers and in glacial till deposits.
This has attracted an increasing number of prospectors. BGF is the largest holder of claims in the region covering numerous historical placer gold deposits.
The claim gives the holder an exclusive right to search for mineral substances. A claim holder requires written consent from private property owners prior to mineral exploration work.
Beauce Gold Fields is a gold exploration company focused on placer to hard rock exploration in the Beauce region of Southern Quebec.
