West Red Lake Gold Mines Inc. (“West Red Lake Gold” or the “Company”) (CSE: RLG) (FSE: HYK) (OTCQB: RLGMF) announces the commencement of the Fall 2016 exploration program on the Company’s 3100 hectare West Red Lake Project located in the Red Lake Gold District, Northwestern Ontario, Canada.
The drill program is designed to further explore the Structural Intersection area where regional geological structures intersect, and also to explore the expansion potential of the Rowan Mine Zones. Both exploration target areas are located on the Rowan Mine joint venture property which is 60 percent owned by West Red Lake Gold and 40 percent owned by Goldcorp affiliate Red Lake Gold Mines.
Recent early stage exploration drilling into the highly prospective Structural Intersection target area has identified the presence of high grade gold in the Pipestone Bay St Paul Deformation Zone and has also identified high grade gold in the NT Zone. Exploration activity is ongoing to identify potential locations for significant gold deposition in the Structural Intersection target area. The intersection of the two regional gold bearing structures represents a classic Red Lake target.
