Metals Creek Completes Diamond Drilling on The Dona Lake Gold Project
Toronto Ontario, August 04, 2020 - Metals Creek Resources Corp. (the “Corporation”, TSXV: MEK) is pleased to announce the completion of the Corporation’s first diamond drilling program on the Dona Lake Gold Project (the “Project”) in the Pickle Lake Gold Camp, Ontario. A total of 1411 meters were drilled in two shallow holes that tested both the Main Zone and B Zone and a deep hole testing for the continuation of gold mineralization below the lower most level of the mine (455 level).
All three holes were successful in intercepting the target stratigraphy. Due to strict Covid-19 measures, all core has been moved to the Corporation’s office in Thunder Bay and is currently being logged and split at a secure location. Drill Holes will be submitted for analysis once they are logged and split and results will be released as they are received and compiled.
The Dona Lake Gold Project was optioned from Newmont Corporation (previously Newmont Goldcorp - see news release dated 13 June 2019) and is located in the Pickle Lake Greenstone Belt which is host to several historic mines including the Dona Lake mine, the Central Patricia mine and the Pickle Crow mine. Dona Lake is accessible by an all-weather road southeast from the Town of Pickle Lake. The Project consists of 32 patented and leased mining claims and 35 map staked claims totaling approximately 1,063 hectares and covers the past producing Dona Lake Mine.
Currently there are four known gold bearing oxide iron formations that host gold mineralization on the Dona Lake Gold Project. During compilation work by Company personnel, it was determined that the deepest hole found to date was drilled approximately 100m below the mine workings of the Main Zone (455m). This hole (455-2) was drilled by Placer Dome (Mine Operator) and returned a down hole intercept of 4.36 g/t Gold over 21.08 meters indicating the continuation of mineralization at depth below the bottom level (455 Level) of the Dona Lake Mine Main Zone.
A second zone (B Zone), footwall to the Main Zone, was partially drilled off by Placer Dome (Mine Operator) but only saw limited development and test mining and is open at depth with limited drilling along strike. B Zone is defined as a steeply plunging zone with intersections including 14.17 g/t Au over 15.31 m, 9.9 g/t Au over 10.6 m, 7.85 g/t Au over 5.85m and 12.44 g/t Au over 4.6m.
The above-mentioned drill intercepts are historical in nature and have not been verified or validated by the Corporation. Reported intercepts are not true widths. At this time there is insufficient data to calculate a true orientation.
