MacDonald drills broad zones of gold mineralization at Glade Trend near Sudbury

Sep 19, 2022

MacDonald Mines Exploration Ltd. has announced the results of its ongoing drill program undertaken at the Glade Gold Trend (“Glade”) on its 100% owned SPJ Property (“SPJ”) near Sudbury.
Highlights of Glade Drill Program (Tables 1 and 2)    

  • Intersections of broad and near-surface zones of gold mineralization starting between 6 and 100 m vertical depth
    • Hole AG-22-103 – Multiple zones of near-surface gold mineralization within an untested area of the Glade gold trend, including one zone of stronger mineralization
      • Upper Zone – 0.47 g/t gold over 8.5 m    
      • Middle Zone – 0.71 g/t gold over 10.35 m
      • Lower Zone – 0.82 g/t gold over 40.5 m including 7.76 g/t gold over 2.9 m
    • Hole AG-22-105 – Broad zone of near-surface gold mineralization
      • 0.72 g/t gold over 37.45 m including 16 g/t gold over 1 m
  • Mineralization remains open in all directions
    • The combination of channel sampling and diamond drilling confirmed the presence gold mineralization at Glade over a strike length of >350 m
    • Earthlabs Inc. (“Earthlabs”) (formerly GoldSpot Discoveries Corp.) identified high-priority and moderate priority targets at Glade spanning a strike length of approximately 3 km
    • Results support the potential of an extensive gold mineralization trend at Glade
  • Identification of PGM mineralization in the Glade Nipissing intrusion
    • 0.16 g/t Pd over 4.00 m in AG-22-103 with anomalous Cu and Ni at the contact(s) of the intrusion(s)
    • Results are indicative of a PGE-Cu-Ni bearing intrusive unit

Greg Romain, President & CEO, commented;
“The ongoing drill program at SPJ continues to deliver positive results and confirms the continuity of the gold and polymetallic mineralization at depth as well as a potential connection between the Glade Gold Trend and the mineralized system associated with the Scadding Deposit.” 

Mr. Romain added: Our drill program to date coupled with these results provide further insight to expand and target new areas of exploration both at Glade and Alwyn.”
