Roth repeats 'Buy' on First Mining Gold after 'logical' proposed Goldlund sale to focus on Springpole asset
In a statement on Tuesday, First Mining said its drilling had continued to define mineralization in the eastern portion of the already defined 'Main Zone' and supported the potential for a resource expansion.
The group said highlights of the drill assays included 5.46 grams per ton (g/t) gold over 9.6 metres and 2.51 g/t over 22 metres.
"Drilling at Goldlund continues to return strong results, supporting the potential for resource growth at the Main Zone," Dan Wilton, the CEO at First Mining said in a statement.
"We are excited to continue to showcase the asset's potential as it will soon become part of a district-scale opportunity within Treasury Metals. These results demonstrate the growth potential from the regional consolidation of this multi-million ounce gold district in Ontario."
So far, the firm said 46 holes, or around 8,588 metres, had been completed at the Main Zone as part of the 2019-2020 drill program. Tuesday's statement provided results from a further 13 holes completed to date, following on the results from prior holes in May and March.
Combined, the Goldlund and Goliath projects will represent one of the largest undeveloped gold assets in Canada.
