Mistango announces expanded drill program at Kirkland West Gold Project

Jul 28, 2021

Mistango River Resources Inc. is providing an update on plans to resume drilling on its 100%-owned Kirkland West Project, near Kirkland Lake. With the completion of a $60 million strategic partnership with Kirkland Lake Gold ("KL Gold"), the company is pleased to announce the expanded exploration program set to resume in late Q3 2021. 

"Working closely with KL Gold, our exploration team is excited to resume and expand the existing drill program at Kirkland Lake West. Leveraging KL Gold's technical expertise and financial resources to fund the program, the Company remains focused on testing a variety of highly-prospective target areas with the objective of making a discovery within a world-class gold camp", said Stephen Stewart, Mistango's Chairman. 

About Kirkland West's Phase 2 Program 
The exploration plan developed by the Mistango and Kirkland Lake Gold technical teams will involve 3-D modeling of available geophysical, principally aeromagnetic data. The resulting models will form the basis for an updated interpretation of the geological structure of the Baldwin Zone. The partners intend to combine the updated structural interpretation with geophysical products and geological data to define high priority drill targets. The partners intend to complete the remaining 3,000 metres of the Phase 1 program and commence a Phase 2 drill program which includes a further 2,000 metres. Drilling is expected to resume by the end of Q3 2021.

Phase 1's 10,000 metre Kirkland West exploration drilling program was temporarily delayed in late April due to difficult ground conditions related to the annual spring thaw.
