Monarch Gold Reports 311 G/T Gold Over 0.50 Metres At McKenzie Break Project

Monarch Gold (TSX: MQR) this morning announces high-grade assays from its drill program conducted earlier this year at the McKenzie Break gold project, located north of Val-d’Or, Quebec. The drill program, at 1,896 metres drilled, had highlights of 13.95 grams per tonne gold over 14.35 metres, including 311 grams per tonne gold over 0.5 metres.

The drill program consisted of a total of four drill holes on the property, which is located adjacent to Xander Resources (TSXV: XND) Senneville group of properties, and found a newly identified gold bearing zone below the target horizon. This new zone returned 27.15 g/t gold over 2.0 metres, which indicates that stacked veins may be present on the property.

The newly defined mineralization zone is located to the east of Monarch’s current resource estimate on the property, providing evidence of further mineralization on site. All four holes intersected at the targeted depth, with drilling indicating that the target Number 12 vein has continuity. The zone as a whole remains open to the south and east, with the latest program confirming the continuity of the zone and and increase in grade to the southeast.
