These first holes were drilled on Sections 1230E to 1265E of the 325 Zone, on the same 290° azimuth. The holes were drilled at dips of -50°, -60° and -70° to intersect the mineralized zone at vertical depths of 175 to 275 metres. AGATLabs of Mississauga, Ontario, reported the following results:
Hole M-13-93: 33.6 g/t Au over 5.85 m at a vertical depth of 217 m
Hole M-13-94: 11.5 g/t Au over 5.30 m at a vertical depth of 187 m
Hole M-13-95: 42.0 g/t Au over 7.20 m at a vertical depth of 278 m
TomaGold President and CEO David Grondin said:
This major discovery will take our assessment to a whole new level at Monster Lake, which has never been drilled to a depth of more than 125 metres. These holes show that the 325 Zone has promising gold potential at depth. The results for the first three holes would seem to indicate that the 325 Zone becomes wider and richer at depth. The presence of trace chalcopyrite and sphalerite and semi-massive pyrrhotite accompanied by intense black chlorite alteration suggests the proximity of a “VMS”-type setting, an indicator of potential for massive sulphide gold deposits.
