ONTARIO – Where better to find gold than in a gold mine? Kirkland Lake Gold did just that when it recently drilled 180.34 g/t Au over a true width of 0.7 metres in a large, unexplored area of the Macassa gold mine at Kirkland Lake. The intersection occurred in hole 34-666 at an elevation of –2967 and on the west side of the Tegren cross-fault.

A second hole, 34-668, intersected 27.43 g/t over a true width of 1.3 metres at –2890 and east of the Tegren cross-fault.

Interest in this area of the property rose sharply after a paste fill hole completed in 2005 intersected two quartz veins in the unexplored area. The upper 10-cm vein contained visible gold and tellurides, making it a display piece. The lower vein assayed 17.5 g/t over 0.9 metres.
