QUEBEC – There is still gold in the former Bachelor Lake mine in Le Sueur Township, and Vancouver-based HALO RESOURCES is drilling it. The mine was active from 1982 to 1989. The site contains an office, shop, dry, headframe and 500-tons/day mill and cyanidation plant.
The latest drilling results come from the new A and B zones and the previously-mined Main zone. The best assay from the Main zone was from hole 12-44, which returned 23.68 g/t Au over 2.29 m, within a section grading 14.94 g/t Au over 5.03 m. In the B zone, hole 12-46 assayed 17.22 g/t Au over 4.7 m, including 27.49 g/t Au over 2.78 m. Hole 12-44 in the A zone returned 6.12 g/t Au over 2.37 m, within a section grading 5.19 g/t Au over 3.5 m.
Halo is earning a 50% interest in the Bachelor Lake property from WOLFDEN RESOURCES; the balance is owned by METANOR RESOURCES. Two drills are currently operating on the property, and details of the program may be viewed at www.HaloRes.com.
