NORTHWEST TERRITORIES – Nighthawk Gold Corp. of Toronto is drilling the Colomac gold project, part of its Indin Lake property, and recent results should make many a gold bug happy.

In zone 1.5 hole C17-12B cut 145.75 metres of 3.33 g/t gold (25 metres true width) including 22.70 metres at 6.68 g/t and 10.80 metres at 12.19 g/t. This hole extends the mineralized zone an extra 50 metres north of previous intersections. Current drilling has also expanded the high grade zone by at least 200 metres along strike and to a vertical depth of 350 metres. Nighthawk has also confirmed that mineralization extends another 250 metres down plunge pas the current resource model. Also in zone 1.5 hole C17-8B intersected 34.75 metres of 3.12 g/t gold (15 metres true width) including 10.40 metres of 7.48 g/t gold.

Zone 2.0 also yielded noteworthy results. Hole C17-09B cut 66.60 metres of 1.04 g/t gold (50 metres true width) including 33.20 metres of 1.42 g/t. Hole C17-09C cut 47.80 metres of 1.08 g/t gold (25 metres true width) including 16.90 metres of 1.87 g/t and including 6.70 metres of 3.61 g/t gold. Hole C17-10B intersected 86.30 metres of 1.45 g/t gold (30 metres true width) including 23.30 metres of 1.98 g/t gold and including 8.40 metres of 3.03 g/t.
