ONTARIO – Drilling by KIRKLAND LAKE GOLD in its Macassa mine at Kirkland Lake, Ont., has cut material assaying as high as 114 g/t (3.34 oz/ton) Au (uncut) over 5.12 metres. This high-grade zone and several others were intersected from the new 3500 L drift. Samples from other zones assayed 73 g/t Au over 1.95 metres and 83 g/t Au over 1.83 metres.
Kirkland Lake says the newly discovered mineralized zones differ from the quartz-hosted gold mined in the past. The new zones have more consistent grades in sulphide zones along extensive structures.
