Northern Lion Gold Corp. (TSXV:NL) reported significant gold and copper results from the entirely owned Anglesides project within the Republic of Cyprus.

As quoted in the press release:

The Company has received results for seven vertical rotary holes totaling 272.37 metres drilled in the Anglesides project area, and four out of the seven holes returned significant results, (see table below). These assays represent the first results from the ongoing reconnaissance rotary drilling program that began in July 2011. The rotary drill program is designed to follow up on results from the previous diamond drill program and various soil and surface rock samples.

The Anglesides project was applied for on the basis of historical information derived from the ongoing evaluation of data acquired from the Geological Survey of Cyprus department, and information supplied by the Company’s consultants in Cyprus. A small amount of mining occurred in the 1930′s by the Cyprus Mines Corporation, when it reportedly extracted 88 long tonnes of cuprous pyrite grading 5.98% copper. At the same time 1,336 short tonnes of auriferous ore were extracted grading 24.5 g/t gold and 86.4 g/t silver.
