Midland reports new gold-bearing zone in sediments on Maritime-Cadillac

Jan 26, 2021

Midland Exploration Inc. is reporting that a new gold-bearing zone was identified during the drilling campaign completed last September on its Maritime-Cadillac project. The Maritime-Cadillac property is a joint venture between Agnico Eagle Mines Limited (“Agnico Eagle”) (51%) and Midland (49%) and is located along the Cadillac Break.

During this program, two (2) drill holes totalling 1,311.0 metres were completed during the month of September 2020. Drill hole 141-20-41, totalling 879.0 metres and mainly designed to test the down-plunge extension of the Dyke East zone, intersected, near the end of the drill hole, a new gold-bearing zone associated with quartz veins and chlorite-biotite alteration in sediments of the Cadillac Group.

This new gold zone yielded an interval grading 9.69 g/t Au over 1.0 metre from 847.3 to 848.3 metres. The Dyke East zone was also intersected, with an interval grading 0.33 g/t Au over 15.3 metres from 761.4 to 776.7 metres, including 1.44 g/t Au over 1.0 metre from 774.5 to 775.5 metres. In addition, a few gold values above 1 g/t Au were also intersected higher up in the drill hole.
