GOLD: KL Gold cuts huge bonanza to extend SMC



ONTARIO – Nothing succeeds like success. Or like excess if you have a bonanza grade of 2,846.1 g/t Au. That is what Kirkland Lake Gold of Toronto drilled at its South mine complex (SMC) near the town of Kirkland Lake.

Nor was that the only high grade assay. Here are some more underground highlights:

  • 651.8 g/t Au (93.6 g/t cut) over 3.8 metres, including 2,846.1 g/t Au over 0.5 metres, in hole 53-2921.
  • 40.1 g/t Au over 3.0 metres in hole 53-2967.
  • 97.7 g/t Au (70.2 g/t cut) over 1.6 metres, including 263.3 g/t Au over 0.3 metres, in hole 53-3065.
  • 102.5 g/t Au (26.7 g/t cut) over 3.2 metres, including 923.3 g/t Au over 0.3 metres, in hole 53-3098.
  • 100.5 g/t Au (68.6 g/t cut) over 1.6 metres, including 261.6 g/t over 0.3 metres, in hole 53-3099.

These results are from infill holes between inferred resource blocks and new mineralization associated with the easterly strike extension of the SMC on the HM claim that lies about 610 metres southeast of the No.2 shaft.

Underground drilling continues at the SMC and the area of mineralization continues to grow to the east. The goal is to connect the SMC mineralization and the discovery hole 53-2414 drilled in 2014. That  hole returned 21.6 g/t Au over a core length of 0.9 metres. The new zone is located in the footwall, north of the New South zone (part of the SMC).
