GOLD: Premier offers update on Red Lake exploration

ONTARIO – Premier Gold Mines of Thunder Bay, ON, is pleased with the continuing exploration of its Rahill-Bonanza joint venture in the Red Lake mining camp. Premier’s partner at Rahill is Goldcorp (55% and operator) of Vancouver.

Hole D36987 assayed 15.79 g/t Au over 2.1 metres within an alteration zone of 6.58 g/t over 6.3 metres. Hole D36994 returned 18.20 g/t Au over 3.4 metres. Hole D36999 assayed 36.30 g/t Au over 1.7 metres and 10.0 g/t over 2.5 metres.
