New Found Gold Reports On Single Drill Hole From Keats Zone

New Found Gold (TSXV: NFG) this morning felt the need to issue a press release for a single hole completed at its Queensway gold project in Gander, Newfoundland. The single hole, drilled at the Keats Zone, is part of a 100,000 metre ongoing drill program.

The hole itself was drilled to a total depth of 269 metres, with it reportedly intersecting three zones of mineralization. The first zone, from 44.7 metres to 73.35 metres, resulted in mineralization of 11.8 g/t gold over 29.15 metres, with sub intervals that include 6.85 metres of 44.5 g/t gold and 0.35 metres of 824 g/t gold. A second and third zone at 194.4 metres and 219.7 metres returned 1.09 g/t gold over 3.20 metres and 2.02 g/t gold over 2.60 metres, respectively.

The drill hole is said to have displayed abundant quartz veining, sulfides and visible gold, resulting in a rushed assay of the core. The hole, NFGC-20-26, was drilled 60 metres from the famed discovery in hole NFGC-19-01 that lead to the go public of the company. Two additional holes completed nearby have now also been sent off for rushed assaying.
