ONTARIO -- Winter drilling conducted by PELANGIO MINES of Toronto has confirmed its model of the Calcite zone at its Detour Lake project. The property includes the site of the former Detour Lake gold mine 160 km northeast of Timmins.
Two holes drilled in the Calcite zone returned substantial widths of open-pit-grade mineralization. Hole PM-113 intersected 108.9 m averaging 1.64 g/t Au (including 70.9 m grading 1.87 g/t), and hole PM-114 intersected 81.0 m averaging 1.86 g/t including
considerably higher grade intersections of 2.59 g/t over 21.1 m and 2.49 g/t over 22.0 m.)
Pelangio says these results, along with other previously reported results from the 2005 winter drilling program indicate the potential for a substantial strike length of additional gold mineralization. A year ago the resource estimate for Detour Lake was given as 2.5 million tonnes at 2.00 g/t Au in the indicated category and 23.4 million tonnes at 2.29 g/t in the inferred category. The technical report supporting these figures is available at www.Pelangio.com.
