MANITOBA – Not often do gold assays hit 85 g/t and even less frequently does it happen at two separate Manitoba projects as reported in the last week. For anyone who is counting, 85 g/t is approximately 2.9 opt Au.
First, SAN GOLD of Bissett reported 85.1 g/t Au over 6.3 metres from the high-grade Hinge #4 zone. Over its 6.3-metre length roughly 100 metres below surface from Hole 33, the intersection can be subdivided into 61.0 g/t Au over 1.0 metre, 2.1 g/t Au over 1.5 metres, 173.3 g/t Au over 1.0 metre, 193.2 g/t Au over 1.3 metres, 36.7 g/t Au over 1.0 metre, and 9.6 g/t Au over 0.5 metre. The hole was drilled close to the company’s Rice Lake mill. Not surprisingly, the core showed abundant visible gold.

At the MacLellan gold mine near Lynn Lake, owner CARLISLE GOLDFIELDS of Toronto has also received a core assay of over 85 g/t Au. Hole 08-08 returned 85.6 g/t Au and 200.9 g/t Ag over a 1.0-metre intersection in the East Main zone. The next highest grade from the same hole was 37.5 g/t Au and 96.2 g/t Ag over 3.0 metres. The company is testing the zones of the former mine as well as the area below the old workings.
