NOVA SCOTIA – Sudbury, Ont.-based Transition Metals Corp. has confirmed new zones of gold mineralization at its Highland property 60 km northwest of Sydney, in the Cape Breton Highlands.

Recent reverse circulation drilling confirmed strike and dip extensions to zone 6A. In zone 6B, a hole intersected 9.0 metres grading 6.14 g/t gold, including 2.0 metres at 25.46 g/t. These two zones are about 2 km east of the Main zone, where rotary air blast drilling returned 9.1 metres grading 23.22 g/t gold.

Transition planned the RC drilling program to investigate near surface showings accessible from MacMillan Road. The company tested large scale, secondary structures indicated by a geophysical survey flown in 2018.
