Rockcliff Metals (TSX.V: RCLF) announced that it is about to kick off a first phase drill program on its high-grade Laguna Gold property located in Snow Lake, Manitoba.
The Laguna Gold Property hosts the past producing Rex-Laguna Mine that was Manitoba’s first and highest-grade gold mine. The 2,500-metre drill program marks the first drill program on the property in over 70 years.
In a press release, the Toronto-based miner explained that gold mineralization on Laguna is controlled by thrust faults attributed to the major regional Crowduck Bay Fault which crosses the entire length of the property.
“Rockcliff’s initial reconnaissance exploration program in 2016-17 identified 7 historical surface high-grade gold-rich quartz zones with multiple areas of visible gold and surface grab sample assays from trace to over 600 g/t gold.
Follow-up geophysical programs including airborne magnetics and surface IP surveys covering the 6-kilometre long Laguna Gold Mine Trend identified significant potential extensions of the known surface gold-rich quartz zones along strike below a thin veneer of cover,” the brief reads. “The Fall exploration program uncovered numerous additional quartz-rich gold-bearing zones, some with visible gold that will be tested in the first phase drill program,” the document adds.
