Alamos Reports New Mineralization At Island Gold Mine

Kitco News

Alamos Gold Inc. (TSX, NYSE: AGI) reports that its drilling program has discovered an extension of high-grade mineralization at the Island Gold Mine.  In the “main extension,” the new findings include 118.58 grams of gold per tonne over 6.66 meters, 21.50 g/t over 7.80 meters, and 31.70 g/t over 3.81 meters. In the “western extension,” discoveries include 78.26 g/t over 2.29 meters and 19.69 g/t over 2.79 meters. Findings in the “eastern extension” include 46.13 g/t over 2.83 meters and 13.72 g/t over 7.60 meters. “Island Gold continues to impress. In less than a year since we acquired the mine, we’ve seen a 17% increase in mineral-reserve grades and significant growth in mineral reserves and resources across all categories,” says John A. McCluskey, president and chief executive officer. “Ongoing exploration success across all three extensions of the ore body, including the best surface directional hole drilled to date, demonstrate strong potential for this to continue.”
