Godwin-Coker Creek Lease Closes 9/26/2017


As of Discussions held with the Buyer, The Godwin - Coker Creek Lease is now closed due to the property being sold. 
While there are other areas where we will be able to pan this has been the only location in the State where we can Class 2 Prospect.
This is an unfortunate turn of events, as we have not been able to secure another lease at this time. We are currently looking in the area. 
However there are still locations where panning is allowed. Please check the forum for details.
