New Found Gold (TSXV: NFG) this morning released its latest drill data from the Keats Zone, and the results are a doozie. The company reported highlight intervals of 45.3 g/t gold over 13.1 metres, along with 25.0 g/t gold over 16.85 metres in step out drilling conducted at the zone.
In total, partial results from six drill holes were released this morning from the firms flagship Queensway project, all of which come from the Keats Zone. The company is currently in the process of conducting a 100,000 metre drill campaign on the large property, which is located near to Gander, Newfoundland.
The highlight results outlined above come from holes NFGC-20-32 and NFGC-20-29, respectively, each of which are located 10 metres south of the initial NFGC-19-01 that hit 92.9 g/t gold over 19.0 metres last year. The full results released this morning are as follows.
|Hole||Gold (g/t)||Interval (m)||Relative to NFGC-19-01|
|NFGC-20-32||45.3||13.1||10m south, 10m below|
|NFGC-20-28||40.1||4.1||10m south, 10m above|
|NFGC-20-34||29.3||2.4||25m below 19-01|
|NFGC-20-30||10.3||6.1||50m south of 19-01|
Mineralization from these holes are said to occur at intervals between 80 metres and 132 metres at depth. Further drill holes from the program, including those taken north of the centre hole, have been sent to the lab to be assayed on a rushed basis. To date, 36 holes have been completed at the Keats Zone, with 12 holes having received partial assays.
