ONTARIO – Recent drilling by Kirkland Lake Gold
has allowed it to confirm the continuity of the mineralization associated with the South mine complex and expand it on the HM claim.
The HM claim was formerly part of the Queenston joint venture property and is located about 610 metres southeast of the No.2 shaft at the Macassa gold mine near Kirkland Lake. The 12-hole program tested inferred resource block areas on both the New South zone , intersecting both new and previously identified hanging wall and footwall zones.
Here are some highlights of the drilling. Hole 53-2886 intersected 383.3 g/t Au uncut (58.3 g/t cut) over a true width of 1.7 metres. In the New South zone, other cores assayed 67.9 g/t over 4.4 metres, 14.7 g/t over 2.9 metres, and 16.5 g/t over 2.7 metres.
KLGold said that four of the six holes drilled on the flanks of the New South zone returned intersections that will allow the resource to be upgraded to indicated.
