Final Drill Program Highlights:

  • – The Carscallen gold project lies within the township of Carscallen, approximately 25 kilometers southwest of Timmins, Ontario. It is comprised of 295 claim units covering 47 square kilometers with 100% ownership by Melkior.

    – The drill program consisted of 5,618 meters.

** Drill hole CAR-20-07 was terminated early at 177 meters due to intense faulting. CAR-21-13 did not return any significant values.

The drill program was performed and managed by Kirkland Lake Gold. The drill core was split with half sent to Actlabs in Timmins, ON, and fire assayed with an AA and gravimetric finish. Whole metallic assays are performed on samples greater than 10 g/t gold and samples containing visible gold. In addition, all seven drill holes were treated with the 1E3 36 element multi-element package with aqua regia analyses. Duplicates, standards, and blanks were inserted into the sample stream.

Carscallen Next Steps:

  • – Drilling is estimated to resume during Q2 2021, with a minimum 3,500 meters currently budgeted for the remainder of the year.

    – Historical geophysics review is underway to assist with exploration targeting.  

    – This summer, a field program will be conducted to review the historical trenches in the Zam Zam Zone for structural trends to complement and augment future drilling strategies.
