Labrador Gold (TSXV:LAB) has announced new results from its ongoing drilling targeting the Appleton Fault Zone over a 12-kilometre strike length. The drilling at the site is part of the company’s 100,000-metre diamond drill program at the Kingsway Project.

Results included an intersection of 20.88 g/t Au Over 5 Metres at Big Vein, and 124.21g/t Au over 0.81 metres and 7.41 g/t Au over 1.0 metres in Hole K-22-206, and 6.04 g/t Au over 1.20 metres in Hole K-22-208, also drilled at the north end of Big Vein.

63,055 metres out of the planned 100,000 have been drilled so far, with assays pending for 2,700 of core samples. Labrador Gold also has approximately $18 million in cash and is funded to complete the remaining 37,000 metres of the program. The company will add further exploration targets on the property to add to the pipeline after the program is completed.

Roger Moss, President and CEO of Labrador Gold, commented in a press release: “We continue to follow up on the success of last year’s drilling at Big Vein with another high-grade intersection at the north end of the zone. Big Vein has now been drilled over a strike length of approximately 520 metres along the west side of the Appleton Fault Zone and remains open to the northeast and to the southwest. Drilling is ongoing at both ends of the zone to extend the strike length of the mineralization.”
