NOVA SCOTIA – Atlantic Gold Corp. has reported phase 3 drilling results for its Fifteen Mile Stream gold project located 57 km from the Torquay central mill facility  near Halifax.

Fifteen Mile stream current measured and indicated resources stand at 10.6 million tonnes grading 1.33 g/t gold for 452,000 oz. using a cut-off of 0.35 g/t. The inferred portion is 6.6 million tonnes at 1.12 g/t for 240,000 oz. using the same cut-off grade. Recent drilling  is expected to increase resources.
