The gold within the new structure has a strike length of 340 metres and a vertical depth of 180 metres, which remains open in all directions. When combined with the Lotto main zone, the high-grade gold-bearing structures have been defined over a total strike length of 630 metres.

New Found Gold also intersected broad gold mineralization west of the AFZ and close to the Zone 36 prospect during step-out drilling north of Lotto North. The company has defined this as an important new drill target which is currently being tested.

Melissa Render, Vice President of Exploration for New Found Gold, commented,

“We are encouraged by the results that Lotto North continues to deliver… We have already mobilized drills into this region for aggressive follow-up on the gold mineralization that has now been identified on both sides of the AFZ this far north.”

New Found Gold Corp. (NFG) is down 1.67 per cent, trading at $5.31 per share as of 1:37 p.m. EST.
