Exploration drilling at Macassa Mine continue to produce spectacular grades for Kirkland Lake Gold.
The Toronto-headquartered mining company released drill results from its exploration program in Kirkland Lake where the focus is on growing gold reserves at its South Mine Complex and finding more high-grade gold further out and deeper down along the unexplored zones around the Amalgamated Break.
In an Oct. 19 news release, the company said it’s seeing “extremely high-grade intersections” from its program to extend the South Mine Complex to the east and west, in identifying high-grade mineralization along the Amalgamated Break, and in identifying a new, high-grade corridor along Main Break near the location of its new No. 4 shaft.
One drilled intercept pulled from the South Mine Complex revealed 253.7 grams per tonne (g/t) over 14.5 metres of core length, including 1,572.9 g/t over 0.6 metres. It was taken from slightly below the current gold reserve.
From the Amalgamated Zone, core from another showed 210.4 g/t over 8.2 metres, including 463.0 g/t over 3.7 metres.
