ONTARIO – As Toronto-based St Andrew Goldfields (SAS) continues to drill at its Hislop project near Timmins, the company reports that drilling continues to return encouraging results.

Said SAS president and CEO Jacques Perron, “Hislop North continues to show the southern strike extension of mineralization onto SAS property. Drilling will re-commence on this area once the pit drilling is completed. At the pit complex, drilling continues to confirm that the mineralization continues to depth beneath both pits.”

Core from the Hislop pit complex assayed 3.06 g/t Au over 21.8 metres including 5.30 g/t over 8.2 metres; 3.37 g/t Au over 17.6 metres including 15.60 g/t over 2.2 metres; and 7.01 g/t Au over 8.1 metres including 20.30 g/t over 1.5 metres. Well mineralized intercepts were reported from below both the East and West pits. Infill drilling continues.

At Hislop North holes assayed 4.43 g/t Au over 20.2 metres including 12.81 g/t over 3.8 metres; and 8.32 g/t Au over 6.4 metres including 13.42 g/t over 2.9 metres. The drill intersected a brecciated albitic mafic volcanic with significant quartz veining and disseminated pyrite. The mineralization is open at depth, and SAS plans a second phase of drilling to test the limits in that direction.
