Highlights:

  • Step-out drilling at the Sugar Zone continues to expand mineralization to the southwest at depth, returning 16.82 g/t over 1.66 meters in SZ-17-234 and confirms high grades continuing to the southwest.

  • Step-out drilling reconfirms continuity of grade and width characteristic of the deposit, including: 11.36 g/t over 2.00 meters at SZ-17-223W and 11.16 g/t over 2.05 meters at SZ-17-223W2.

  • Middle Zone drilling continues to expand the mineralized envelope and demonstrates attractive widths including a high grade core, returning  6.80 g/t over 6.18 meters including 36.90 g/t over 1.05 meters at WZ-17-92.

  • Follow up drilling at the Lynx Zone is underway.

  • Regional drilling is now testing new targets including: Marten Zone on the west side of the Dayohessarah Lake and Moose Zone on the south end of Dayohessarah Lake.

QA/QC Statement
The company has implemented a quality assurance and control (“QA/QC”) program to ensure sampling and analysis of mine and exploration work is conducted in accordance with industry standards. Drill core is sawn in half with one half of the core shipped to Actlabs Laboratories located in Thunder Bay, ON, while the other half is retained at the company’s core facilities in White River for future verification. Certified reference standards and blanks are inserted into the sample stream on a regular interval basis and monitored as part of the QA/QC program. Gold analysis is performed by fire assay using atomic absorption, gravimetric or pulp metallic finish.
