ONTARIO – PC Gold of Ottawa continues to explore the former Pickle Crow gold mine 400 km northwest of Thunder Bay and has cut bonanza-grade intersections. The newly discovered No.19 vein yielded 43.25 g/t Au over 13.13 metres, including 138.89 g/t (4.05 opt) over 4.00 metres.

The same 13-metre intersection also included 201.96 g/t Au over 2.02 metres and 299.10 g/t over 0.48 metres. The hole was drilled and wedged below shaft No.1.

Commenting on the results, Kevin Keough, president and CEO said: “This is one of the best intercepts to come out of drilling anywhere in northwestern Ontario in the past year. The combination of width and grade is exceptional.”

The Pickle Crow mine produced 1.47 million oz of gold during its lifetime from 1935 to 1966. Historical pictures are available at www.PCGold.ca.
