Eagle Hill Exploration Corporation (TSXV:EAG) reported new assay results from its current drill program targeting the eastern extension of Zone 27 at the Windfall Lake Gold Deposit in Northwestern Quebec.
As quoted in the press release:
The first results of the systematic drilling in the eastern extension of gold Zone 27 demonstrate that this zone continues to deliver solid gold results at depth. Drill hole EAG-12-399 returned an interval of 15.24 g/t gold over 2.9 meters and drill hole EAG-12-400 assayed 12.1 g/t gold over 3.7 meters. Furthermore, the zone remains open for expansion to the east.
In addition to the results obtained to the East, we are also pleased to report additional results in the upper extension of Zone 27, close to surface. Drill hole EAG-12-392 returned an interval of 5.5 g/t gold over 2.1 meters and other assay results are pending from drill hole EAG-12-409 where visible gold was observed in a wide mineralized zone containing up to 15 percent pyrite. A series of drill holes have been completed to test the near surface gold mineralization over a 400 meter strike-length from section 2125m to section 2525m East. The ultimate objective of this targeted drill program is to define a gold mineral resource, close to surface, that could be mined through an early stage open pit operation centred on or around the Upper Extension of Zone 27.
