NOVA SCOTIA – Vancouver-based Atlantic Gold Corp. has updated the results for its most recent resource extension drilling at its three gold projects near Halifax.

At the Touquoy gold deposit, intersects were of good lengths and there were some very high grades for an open pit project. Assays included 6.25 g/t gold over 6 metres; 5.19 g/t over 5 metres; 1.65 g/t over 16 metres; 1.64 g/t over 9 metres; and 1.57 g/t over 15 metres. In these holes, mineralization was encountered less than 50 metres below surface.

Drilling at the Fifteen Mine Stream gold deposit lacked the higher grades of Touquoy, but the lengths of the intersections were notable. Assays included 1.59 g/t gold over 15 metres; 2.91 g/t over 9 metres; 0.95 g/t over 22 metres; 1.41 g/t over 26 metres; and 1.06 g/t over 28 metres. Drilling cut the gold mineralization at depths between 100 and 220 metres below surface.

There was one genuine bonanza grade at the Cochrane Hill gold deposit – 30.2 g/t gold over 1 metre. Other highlights include 1.65 g/t over 21 metres; 10.38 g/t over 4 metres; 2.39 g/t over 8 metres; and 7.96 g/t over 6 metres.

Atlantic Gold has put the detailed results of this drill program in the news release dated Dec. 5, 2018. It is posted at
