Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - March 15, 2021) - Pasofino Gold Limited (TSXV: VEIN) (OTCQB: EFRGF) (FSE: N07) ("Pasofino" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has completed all conditions to earn its 50% ownership interest in the advanced-stage Roger gold-copper project ("Roger" or the "Project") located in the prolific Abitibi Greenstone Belt in Quebec from project operator SOQUEM, a subsidiary of Investissement Québec.
