West Red Lake Gold Mines Inc. (“West Red Lake Gold” or the “Company”) (CSE: RLG) (FSE: HYK) (OTCQB: RLGMF) announces the next phase of exploration drilling planned to begin the first week of November 2017 on the Company’s 3100 hectare West Red Lake Project located in the Red Lake Gold District, Northwestern Ontario, Canada.
The exploration drill program is designed to further explore the potential of the Rowan Mine Zones and to explore the area of the Structural Intersection located approximately 1km east of the Rowan Mine Zones.
Drilling is planned in the area of the Rowan Mine Shaft, including two holes to follow up on hole RLG-17-45 which intersected 72.6 grams over 3.0m and another hole located 200 metres west of RLG-17-45 to test a geological contact for potential increased hydrothermal activity with attendant gold mineralization.
In the Structural Intersection area, two holes will be drilled along the most transposed/overlapping portion of the fold hinge, at the intersection of major northeast and east-west trending shear zones. One hole will test the hinge of the fold where the northeast trending shear zone disrupts the stratigraphy, and the second hole will test the hinge of the fold along strike between the Rowan Mine and the Red Summit Mine.
The Rowan Mine Zones lie within the east-west trending regional shear structure known as the Pipestone Bay St Paul Deformation Zone (the “PBS Zone”). Gold zones are hosted within a sequence of hydrothermally altered mafic volcanics with intercalated felsic volcanics and porphyries as well as ultramafics. The gold mineralization is associated with quartz veining and increased iron sulphide mineralization.
Three former gold mines on the West Red Lake Project property are situated on the east-west trending PBS Zone, the regional geological structure which crosses the Company property and continues east to the town of Red Lake. The regional scale Golden Arm Structure and the sub-parallel NT Zone cross onto the West Red Lake Project from the south boundary and trend northeast for 2km to where they merge and intersect with the PBS Zone.
