ONTARIO The drills are turning on QUEENSTON MINING’s Kirkland Lake project. The holding covers former producers Upper Canada, Sylvanite, McBean, Upper Beaver, and Anoki that together produced over 3.3 million oz Au.
The 17-hole project will cost about $400,000 and focus on four targets. Two holes at Vigrass will test separate structures (the 103 Break containing the AK deposit and the Larder Lake Break) on the western portion of the Kirkland Lake camp. On the Amalgamated Kirkland property, five holes will target two structures parallel to the 103 Break and AK deposit. Two more drills will test the Amalgamated Kirkland fault 300-400 m north of the AK deposit. At Gull Lake three drills will test the eastern extension of the Kirkland Lake Main Break. And seven holes at the North Break will target a series of geophysical and geological occurrences within a 400-m-thick corridor between the Larder Lake Break and the North Break.
Queenston and Franco-Nevada were equal joint venture partners in the Kirkland Lake project until Franco-Nevada merged with Newmont and Normandy. Queenston bought out Newmont’s share and now holds 100% of the project. Queenston’s is the largest single landholding in the Kirkland Lake camp.
