YUKON FIRESTONE VENTURES of Edmonton has begun its 2004 field season in the Finlayson Lake area. The company has an option to earn a 60% interest in the Straw, Lion, Meg and Rusty properties belonging to TRUE NORTH GEMS. The properties cover 4,786 hectares only 7 km from the Regal Ridge emerald discovery.
Firestone plans to spend approximately $50,000 during August on intensive prospecting and sampling on its highest priority targets at the Straw-Lion property. An overview of last year’s exploration results are available on the company’s website at www.firestoneventures.com.
