ONTARIO – Mineralization at the South Mine Complex on the Macassa property in Kirkland Lake keeps growing, according to owner Kirkland Lake Gold. The SMC now consists of 25 or more mineralized zones, some that are in production and some that are still in the exploration or development stages.
The latest drill results from the eastern portion of the New South zone included a 4.9-metre section that assayed 85.0 g/t Au uncut. This intersection is only 30.5 metres down dip from an earlier hole that returned 26.4 g/t over 1.7 metres. Other new drill holes have returned equally encouraging results.
Kirkland Lake has mobilized a larger diamond drill on the 5305 drift to test the possible extension of the ’08 Break. Testing of the New South zone will resume early next year when a new drill bay is completed at the east end of the 5305 drift.
Kirkland Lake is increasing both its hoisting capacity and mill throughput. Details of the program are available in the latest corporate presentation posted at www.KLGold.com.
