West Red Lake Gold (RLG) has expanded gold mineralisation at the NT Zone of its Rowan Mine property in northwestern Ontario.

The drill program, which is expected to continue through to November, has seen 3,188 metres of diamond drilling completed to date across 10 holes.

This work has been primarily focused on a 450 metre portion of the two-kilometre-long NT Zone, which trends north-east from the southern edge of the property before it intersects the east-west trending Pipestone Bay St Paul Deformation (PBS) Zone.

It follows a separate 3,188-metre program that was completed earlier this year, and has been designed to expand gold mineralisation at the NT Zone.

While the program is ongoing, a number of significant intersects have already been made. These include six metres at 5.91 grams per tonne of gold and three metres at 7.92 grams per tonne of gold.

Such promising results suggest the presence of several parallel gold zones within the 100-metre wide NT Zone structure and alteration halo, and therefore confirm the potential of mineralisation at depth and roughly 200 meters further along strike to the northeast.

John Kontak, President of West Red Lake Gold, commented on the results of the program so far.

“We are very pleased that the drilling has further expanded the NT Zone gold mineralisation to depth and along strike.

“The exploration work serves to demonstrate that significant exploration potential exists on this regional scale gold bearing geological structure which is well situated in the Red Lake Gold Camp,” he said.

West Red Lake Gold (RLG) is currently down 32.26 per cent to C$0.10 per share at 3:15pm EDT.
