New Found drills 2,202 gram-meter gold near surface at Keats
(Kitco News) - New Found Gold (TSXV: NFG) (OTC: NFGFF) today announced high-grade drill results from four additional holes drilled at the Keats Zone, which is a part of the company’s 100%-owned Queensway project, located on the Trans-Canada Highway 15km west of Gander, Newfoundland.
The company said that the intervals of 131.1 g/t Au over 4.65m and 124.4 g/t over 17.7m (2,202 gram-meter) in Hole NFGC-20-59 start at a vertical depth of approximately 27m and continue to approximately 63m vertical depth. These intervals provide further drill confirmation of a broad zone of near surface, high-grade gold mineralization at the north end of Keats, explained New Found.
COO Greg Matheson, P.Geo., commented: "The outstanding intervals of 131.1 g/t Au over 4.65m plus 124.4 g/t over 17.7m in Hole NFGC-20-59 yield the highest width x grade of any hole to date at Keats (cumulative +2800 m*g/t). These intervals provide further drill confirmation of the substantial zone of near surface high-grade gold mineralization at the north end of Keats. We continue our infill and step-out drilling at Keats and look forward to reporting further results in the near future."
New Found holds a 100% interest in the Queensway project, located 15km west of Gander, Newfoundland, and just 18km from Gander International Airport.
