QUEBEC – Wesdome Gold Mines of Toronto has discovered a new gold occurrence near its Kiena gold mine in Val d'Or. The discovery was made 1.4 km northwest of the mine, and just north of the tailings pond. The mineralization has been traced along a length of 200 metres and initially to a depth of 300 metres. Importantly, it is also only 800 metres southwest of the Northwest zone that the company is currently evaluating for future development.

Wesdome made the discovery during a land based surface drilling program at the Presqu'ile sector. The program was initiated to verify the exploration potential along the Norbenite-Marbenite Break that is host to several past and current producing gold mines including Malartic Hygrade, Norlartic, Kierens, Marban, Kiena and Goldex.

The highest assays received include 71.03 g/t Au over 2.1 metres (all lengths are true widths), 63.42 g/t Au over 0.4 metres, and 30.39 g/t Au over 2.4 metres. The longest intersection was 5.04 g/t Au over 4.5 metres.

Drill hole locations and results highlights are available at Wesdome.com.
