Mountain Lake Resources Inc. (TSXV:MOA) reported the latest batch of drill results from the Leprechaun gold deposit area of the Valentine Lake property, Newfoundland.
As quoted in the press release:
- The new hanging wall zone, occurring 100 meters (m) above the main zone, contains wide intervals of near-surface, low-grade mineralization including 0.92 grams per tonne (g/t) gold (Au) over 24.0 m and 0.90 g/t Au over 14.0 m in VL-11-332 and 1.31 g/t Au over 8.0 m in VL-11-334. This zone is open along strike.
- Expansion of the main zone mineralization in the “Heart of Gold” includes 3.5 g/t Au over 21.6 m including 13.86 g/t Au over 4.0 m in VL-11-336, 6.97 g/t Au over 8.1 m including 18.5 g/t Au over 2.7 m in VL-11-330, and 1.46 g/t Au over 13.5 m in VL-11-334.
- Additional down-dip mineralization occurs in drill holes VL-11-337 with 3.46 g/t Au over 24.7 m including 15.16 g/t Au over 4.8 m, VL-11-333 with 0.95 g/t Au over 28.0 m with 3.03 g/t Au over 2.4 m and VL-11-335 with 1.04 g/t Au over 16.2 m and VL-11-328 with 1.08 g/t Au over 12.8 m in VL-11-328.
These latest results continue to expand the Leprechaun Deposit and the new hanging wall mineralization will have a very positive effect on the open pit resource estimation which commences later this month.
