- West Red Lake Gold Mines (RLG) has launched a geophysical program at the NT Zone of its West Red lake Project in northwestern Ontario
- A 100-kilometre airborne magnetic survey has already begun, focused on a regional fold structure that intersects the NT Zone
- The survey has been designed to identify regions of folding and faulting in the structure that could provide targets for future drilling work
- This comes ahead of a proposed drill program scheduled to begin in the second half of September this year
- West Red Lake Gold Mines (RLG) is currently steady at C$0.16 per share
West Red Lake Gold Mines (RLG) has launched a geophysical program at the NT Zone of its West Red lake Project in northwestern Ontario.
The NT Zone sits on the Rowan Mine property joint venture portion of the company’s West Red Lake Project, and trends north-east from the southern edge of the property for approximately two kilometres before it intersects the east-west trending Pipestone Bay St Paul Deformation (PBS) Zone.
An in-depth 100-kilometre airborne magnetic survey has already begun, focusing on the regional fold structures within this intersection, which lies roughly 800 metres south of the past-producing Rowan Mine.
Pilots stationed at the Rowan Mine property will use a drone to carry out the survey approximately 10 metres above tree level, which will cover the NT Zone, the Rowan Gold Deposit portion of the PBS Zone and the intersection area where the NT Zone and the PBS Zone meet.
West Red Lake Gold hopes the survey will assist in identifying regions in the structural intersection where folding and faulting could provide exploration targets for future drilling work.
This has proven to be a successful method in the past for a number of operators in the Red Lake Gold District, and is a common practice that has previously yielded a number of significant deposits.
The company has already scheduled a drill program to begin in the second half of September this year, which is expected to continue through into November.
This work will follow up on strong results that were previously announced from the southern portion of the NT Zone, and aims to further explore the zone’s two-kilometre-long strike to the northeast.
John Kontak, President of West Red Lake Gold Mines, commented on the launch of the geophysical program.
“We are pleased to continue work at the NT Zone with ongoing drilling and to be exploring the adjacent structural intersection target area for future drill targets at this highly prospective area of the property,” he said.
West Red Lake Gold Mines (RLG) is currently steady at C$0.16 per share, as of 1:55pm EDT.
