West Red Lake Gold Mines Inc. (“West Red Lake Gold” or the “Company”) (CSE: RLG) (OTCQB: RLGMF) (FSE: HYK) announces exploration drilling on its West Red Lake Project located in the prolific Red Lake Gold District, Northwestern Ontario, Canada.
Eight drill holes are being drilled to target gold mineralization in the NT Zone which is located on the Rowan Mine Property portion of the West Red Lake Project. The NT Zone trends north-east from the south property boundary to where this regional scale structure intersects with the east-west trending Pipestone Bay St Paul Deformation Zone (“PBS Zone”). The portion of the NT Zone being drilled is located approximately 800 metres south of the former producing Rowan Mine.
Mr. John Kontak, President of West Red Lake Gold stated “We are very pleased to be exploring our promising Red Lake property. We believe that the property holds significant potential and that the current drilling program on the gold bearing NT Zone provides a good opportunity for the expansion of gold mineralization on the property.”
The NT Zone is a largescale alteration/deformation zone. The scale and style of the iron-carbonate alteration within the NT Zone is considered to be associated with large multi-stage hydrothermal systems. Gold mineralization in the NT Zone is associated with silica/sulphide replacement within the iron-carbonate altered Felsic volcanic and intrusive rocks.
The Company property is situated on the Red Lake Archean Greenstone Belt which hosts the high grade gold mines of the Red Lake Gold District. Twenty km to the east of the Company property is the geologically similar world class Red Lake Mine and Campbell Mine, illustrating the significant exploration potential for high grade gold zones on the Company’s West Red Lake Project. Three former gold mines on the West Red Lake Project property are situated on the PBS Zone.
