Northstar Expands Allied Syenite Gold Zone and Makes New Au-Cu Discoveries at Miller Gold Property

Jan 13, 2022

Northstar Gold Corp. has announced results from the Company's Phase IIB drilling exploration program on its 100%-owned Miller Gold Property, situated 18 km southwest of Kirkland Lake. 

A total of 2,495m of drilling was completed in 14 holes on the Miller and Searles Properties between October 1 and November 27, 2021. Assay results for the first 3 of 6 drill holes (MG21-63, MG21-64 and MG21-65) targeting the Bulk Tonnage Allied Syenite Gold Zone*, have been received and confirm a 180 metre northwest extension from previous drilling. All 3 drill holes produced widely distributed anomalous gold grades, including occurrences of visible gold and tellurides over significant widths within the Allied Syenite. 

The Bulk Tonnage Allied Syenite Gold Zone* has now been defined by drilling and surface sampling to encompass an area measuring 350 metres X 200 metres and remains open along strike to the northwest and southeast. Previous drilling in the Allied Syenite intersected 6.6 g/t Au over 117.0 metres, 1.4 g/t Au over 118.5 metres, and 1.2 g/t Au over 107.3 metres.

New discoveries of high-angle gold-copper zones at depth in holes MG21-64 (4.71 g/t Au, 0.51% Cu over 6.4 metres) within a segment of the Independence Fault Zone and MG21-65 (9.41 g/t Au, 1.03% Cu over 3.0 metres), adjacent to a sheared porphyry dike could represent structurally controlled sub-vertical feeder systems for gold-bearing hydrothermal fluids within the Allied Deformation Zone. Metallic screen results are pending for all holes.

Phase IIB Allied Gold Zone Drill Results for holes MG21-63, MG21-64 and MG21-65 are highlighted below:


  • 0.91 g/t Au over 65.9m from 19m to 84.9m including 2.70 g/t Au, 0.1% Cu over 5.92m from 78.98m to 84.9m. 


  • 0.87 g/t Au over 81.5m from 76m to 157.5m including 4.71 g/t Au, 0.51% Cu over 6.4m from 151.1m to 157.5m. 


  • 0.90 g/t Au over 29.7m from 63.3m to 93m.
  • 9.41 g/t Au, 1.03% Cu over 3.0m from 260m to 263m. 

*The reader is reminded that the Allied Syenite Gold Zone is conceptual in nature. There has been insufficient evidence to define a mineral resource and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the exploration target being delineated as a mineral resource.
