BRITISH COLUMBIA – Results from two  more diamond drill holes in the Deep Kerr zone at Seabridge Gold’s KSM copper-gold project 65 km northwest of Stewart have been received. Assays identified 340 metres of core that averaged 0.53 g/t Au and 0.60% Cu.

The holes drilled at KSM this year confirm a high degree of continuity over considerable distances of mineralized material, said the company. The recent holes are further step outs down dip from the current resource limits.

In the past two years, Seabridge has successfully targeted higher grade zones beneath KSM’s near surface porphyry deposits, resulting in the discovery of Deep Kerr and the Iron Cap Lower zone, two copper-rich deposits that have added nearly one billion tonnes of inferred resources to the project at a higher average grade. The goal at Deep Kerr this year was to confirm the continuity of the mineralized zone below the simulated block cave shape used to constrain Deep Kerr resources.
