CADILLAC, Que. The Contact zone has been intersected at QUEENSTON MINING’s 100%-owned Pandora gold project. The zone was hit at a vertical depth of 500 m near the eastern margin of the property. The intersection averages 3.7 g/t Au over 11.5 m (core length). It includes higher grade intervals of 9.4 g/t over 2 m and 10.1 g/t over 0.9 m. This intersection confirms the presence of gold mineralization at Pandora, making it what Queenston calls "highly prospective".

The Contact zone occurs in a sequence of altered mafic-ultramafic volcanic rocks intercalated with biotitic sediments. It contains a series of blue-grey quartz-carbonate veins, visible gold, and up to 5% sulphides (arsenopyrite with trace pyrite, pyrrhotite and stibnite). The zone appears to represent the westward continuation of the Contact zone on BREAKWATER’s Lapa property, which is being explored by AGNICO-EAGLE.

Queenston is also drilling its 100%-owned Kirkland Lake project in Ontario. Figures on past production and current resources for this project are posted at The Kirkland Lake project includes the former Sylvanite, Upper Canada, McBean, Upper Beaver, and Anoki mines.
