TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / June 30, 2022 / E2Gold Inc. (TSXV:ETU, OTCQB:ETUGF) (the 'Company' or 'E2') is pleased to announce that the Company has acquired through staking the mineral rights to 381 claims north and south of the central Hawkins Corridor, where the McKinnon Zone is located on the Hawkins Gold Project in north-central Ontario. The newly staked claims strategically secure more of the Kabinakagami Greenstone Belt, part of the regional and gold bearing Abitibi-Wawa Greenstone Belt.
Regional government magnetic and geological surveys indicate the trends found along the McKinnon Zone. The Company's first steps on the new claims will be mapping and prospecting, with drill targets being potentially developed for 2023.

Airborne magnetics and local mapping have led E2's geologists to note geologic indicators suggesting some of these new targets are potentially poly-metallic in nature.
