ONTARIO – Armistice Resources of Toronto has signed a custom milling contract with SMC (Canada) to treat ore from the McGarry gold mine near Kirkland Lake at the McAlpine mill in Cobalt. Armistice has been stockpiling ore at the mine since December 2011.

The initial amount to be treated is 30,000 tonnes, and the contract may be extended. The mill will treat McGarry ore exclusively.

Underground sampling in the 325N area of the 2250 level at the McGarry mine is ongoing. The work consists of sill drifting on two sub-zones in the 325N zone and on the 260N zone. Two underground diamond drills are active in the 325N area engaged in detailed stope definition. Development on the 2250 level is now only about 60 metres from crosscutting through the 400N zone which appears to be an extension of the 325N zone.
