NORTHWEST TERRITORIES –  Nighthawk Gold Corp. of Toronto continues to drill at its Colomac project in the Indin Lake Greenstone Belt 220 km northwest of Yellowknife. The company recently completed a 26,168-metre drill program focused on resource expansion in both the Colomac Main and Goldcrest sills.

Goldcrest is a 2.5-km-long igneous intrusion that includes an additional 1.5-km-long relatively unexplored southern extension. Uncut highlights of drilling at Goldcrest include:

  • Hole G17-09 intersected 22.40 metres of 5.40 g/t gold Au, including 10.20 metres of 8.48 g/t and 5.80 metres of 13.68 g/t;
  • Hole G17-02B intersected 9.50 metres (5.50 metre true width) of 22.41 g/t gold, including 5.35 metres of 39.42 g/t; and
  • Hole G17-01B intersected 13.60 metres (9.00 metre true width) of 2.88 g/y gold, including 9.70 metres of 3.95 g/t and 4.60 metres of 5.54 g/t.

The high grade mineralization in zone 1.5 was also drilled. Recent drilling confirmed and expanded on the high grade gold zone discovered in 2014, and holes G17-01, 01B and G17-02, 02B infilled sections within the high grade zone and have established an internal continuity of mineralization for the zone that now extends for 125 metres in strike to a depth of 180 metres.
