MacDonald Mines reports 7.19 g/t Gold over 4m, including 12.4 g/t Gold over 1m from samples at Glade

Jun 8, 2021

MacDonald Mines Exploration Ltd. has announced results from 3 channel samples taken at the Glade East Showing as part of its ongoing mechanized stripping and channel sampling program at its 100% owned SPJ Project, 30 km east of Sudbury. Channel AGT-21-002B returned 7.19 g/t gold over 4.0 m, including 12.4 g/t gold over 1.0 m. Gold mineralization at Glade East appears to be associated with a quartz vein system similar to the one discovered in holes AG-21-096 and AG-21-097 (see May 13, 2021 News Release), located 225 m away (Figure 1). Diamond drilling is expected to begin in the coming month at Glade and along the 2.3 km Alkin-Glade trend.

Mia Boiridy, President and CEO, comments, “Following the successful initial winter 2021 drilling at Glade, we immediately started mechanized stripping to uncover historical trenches and outcrops in the area. The 9 trenches uncovered are now being systematically mapped and sampled. Today’s results show a potential extension, 225 m to the east, of the quartz veining system that was discovered at Glade West. Our ongoing surface exploration work at Glade is helping us identify drilling targets for our upcoming summer drilling program and is designed to test these gold-bearing structures at depth. Following drilling at Glade, we plan to begin drilling at and around the historical Alkin Mine and continue along the 2.3 km Alkin-Glade trend.”

Channel AGT-21-002B sampled the core of a network of quartz veins with localized visible gold (Figure 2 and Image 1). Channel sampling and mapping will continue in the coming weeks to define the geometry and grade of the gold-bearing quartz veins and shear systems at Glade in preparation for the upcoming drilling program. Ground exploration will also focus on identifying new targets along the 2.3 km Alkin-Glade trend.
