Manitou Gold expands gold mineralization by 200m and 100m at Stover near Wawa

Apr 15, 2021

Manitou Gold Inc. has announced additional assay results from its ongoing 10,000 metre drill program on its 100% owned Goudreau Project located along the eastern portion of the regional Baltimore Deformation Zone (the “BDZ”) in Northeastern Ontario.

Highlights of drill results are from the Stover Zone, which is within the Company’s Goudreau Project, where the Company is reporting assay results from an additional three drill holes that significantly expand known gold mineralization along strike, to 400 metres, and down-plunge to 500 metres.


  • Step-down and step-out drilling at the Stover Zone expands gold mineralization to 400 metres along strike and to 500 metres down-plunge, the highlights of which include:
    • 5.5 m grading 2.5 g/t Au (starting at 525 m down-hole), including 2 m grading 3.7 g/t Au in hole MTU-21-12, within a wider intersection of 24.5 m grading 1.0 g/t Au, expanding gold mineralization by 200 m down-plunge; 
    • 4.7 m grading 1.0 g/t Au (starting at 510 m down-hole) and including 2.3 m grading 1.6 g/t Au, within a wider intersection of 17.7 m at 0.5 g/tAu in hole MTU-21-13; and
    • 7.8 m grading 0.5 g/t Au (starting at 23.0 m down-hole) in hole MTU-21-11 expanding the footprint of the mineralization at the Stover zone to 400 m along strike.
  • Follow-up drilling 1.2 kms east of the Stover Zone intercepted approximately 50 m of alteration, veining, and mineralization, similar to that of the Stover Zone, with results expected within two weeks.
  • Gold mineralization along the Stover Zone main shear has now been confirmed by drilling over a strike length of 2.2 kms. Continued drilling will test mineralization further along strike.
  • All gold zones encountered along the BDZ to date remain open in all directions. Finalization and planning of new high priority drill targets along the 10 km of strike on the western part of the BDZ is scheduled for May 2021, with the drilling of the high priority targets expected to begin in June 2021.
  • Following the recent completion of the Company’s recent $5.0MM flow-through financing, the Company is fully funded for all planned and announced exploration activities.

“The continued intersection of significant gold values over tens of metres of thickness indicate that the regional BDZ, which hosts our Goudreau Property, is a gold-endowed, crustal scale deformation zone. We are excited that we still have several exploration targets to test on the original Stover grid, which covers the eastern 4.5 km of the BDZ,” stated Richard Murphy, President and CEO of Manitou Gold. “Our geophysical surveys covering the western 10 kilometres of the BDZ are well under way. I expect that we will be ramping up our exploration drilling to test additional new targets in this area in the coming months.”
