SWEDEN – Vancouver-based NORTHLAND RESOURCES INC. (formerly known as NORTH AMERICAN GOLD INC.), has released the iron and copper assays for four metallurgical test holes drilled at its Stora Sahavaara magnetite project in Sweden. Iron grades range from 44.1% to 51.6% total iron, with a weighted average for all four holes of 45.8% iron and 0.08% copper over 47.2 metres.
Buck Morrow, president of Northland, commented, "The iron grades from our drilling at Stora Sahavaara are almost exactly in line with the grades reported by the Swedish Geological Survey from their drilling. The material is now in the metallurgical lab in the U.S. and we hope to be able to comment on the met testing results within four to six weeks. From here, we’ll be looking to develop a substantial magnetite resource figure that is compliant with NI43-101."
The drill program was designed for representative metallurgical testing of approximately 800 metres of strike length of the deposit. Historic drill data indicate that the body can be traced for 1,300 metres along strike, and subcrops close to surface below a few metres of glacial till. The body, which is reported to be between 40 and 100 metres in true thickness, appears to be open down-dip below the current known extent of 750 metres.
