NEWFOUNDLANDNorthern Abitibi Mining of Calgary continues to intersect high-grade gold mineralization at its Viking property 10 km southwest of Sops Arm. The best of the recent intersections was 37.5 g/t Au over 1.2 metres and 4.1 g/t over 18.2 metres. In July 2009, the company noted an intersection of 57.4 metres grading 2.6 g/t, including 45.5 g/t Au over 1.0 metre. The Viking property contains numerous high grade gold zones located within a 3.0 to 4.0 km-long, mostly till-covered, gold-in-soil anomaly.

 

In October 2008 Northern Abitibi drilled 10 holes and intersected widespread high-grade gold mineralization. Highlights include four holes that directly tested the Thor vein and returned a high of 218.8 g/t Au over 0.5 metres, a low of 16.12 g/t over 3.8 metres, with an average of 50.0 g/t gold over 2.2 metres. A lower grade halo surrounds the Thor vein including drill intersections of 23.0 metres grading 5.12 g/t Au (this includes the high grade Thor vein), 22.0 metres grading 1.91 g/t, 10.8 metres grading 2.43 g/t, and 33.3 metres grading 0.73 g/t, according to the company.
