ONTARIO – KIRKLAND LAKE GOLD (KLG) has what looks to be the next gold mine in Northern Ontario. The company has been testing its South mine complex (SMC), which consists of 15 or more mineralized zones, and, of particular interest, the New South zone. One hole cut 789.61 g/t Au (23.03 opt) over 0.3 metre, although values between 30 and 60 g/t Au predominated.
Visible gold was seen in all of the drill cores tested. Individual holes were remarkable, with the following uncut gold values: 71.66 g/t over 9.1 metres, 62.40 g/t over 7.9 metres, 19.94 g/t over 1.7 metres, 56.89 g/t over 16.3 metres, 33.94 g/t over 1.7 metres, 69.94 g/t over 0.8 metre, 16.46 g/t over 14.5 metres, 30.86 g/t over 0.5 metre, 34.63 g/t over 0.7 metre and 45.94 g/t over 1.2 metres. There were numerous higher grade sections in most of these holes.

KLG might well have a new mine in the making, although the mineralization occurs 1,500 to 1,600 metres below surface. This will be an interesting project to watch.
