West Red Lake Gold (CSE: RLG) this morning announced that a 3,000 metre drill program is currently underway on the NT Zone of the firms flagship project in Northwestern Ontario. Drilling is targeting below recent positive results while also testing along strike.
The 2020 exploration program is being conducted as a follow up to the firms recent exploratory work on the property, which yielded 12.14 grams per tonne gold over 13.5 metres, 14.18 g/t gold over 7.8 metres, 9.14 g/t gold over 7.5 metres, and 5.38 g/t gold over 21.0 metres. The current drill program is expected to result in between eight and ten new drill holes on the property as the firm searches for further mineralization.
Key targets of the program include testing of between 150 metres and 250 metres along strike to the northeast of the NT zone, while remaining within the structure, as well as below recent positive results found. 1,200 metres will remain open on the NT zone to the northeast for future exploration, beyond which is the structural intersection where the NT zone intersects the Pipestone Bay St Paul Deformation Zone, which hosts West Red Lake’s Rowan Mine gold deposit.
Furthermore, exploratory work on the NT Zone is being conducted approximately 800 metres south of this deposit, which in 2016 had a 43-101 completed that indicated 1,087,700 inferred ounces of gold via 4,468,900 tonnes of rock grading 7.57 g/t gold.
West Red Lake Gold last traded at $0.08 on the CSE.
