Crystal Lake Mining Intersects Gold at Newmont Lake Project in BC

Crystal Lake Mining Corporation announced the intersection of shallow high-grade gold mineralization at Crystal Lake's Newmont Lake Gold Corridor. The new results are crucial as they provide evidence of a thick unit of unusually high-grade gold mineralization within a broad envelop of continuous low-grade gold mineralization. This discovery is important as it demonstrates that the mineral zone actually increases in both width and in grade in areas where previous models indicate a narrowing of the mineral zone. Additionally, a second deeper horizon has been intersected in an area without gold mineralization in previous models adding to the exploration potential of the Newmont Lake gold corridor along the western flank of the Eskay Rift in NW BC.

The first diamond drill core assay results from ongoing drilling at the NW Zone underscore the potential for higher grades and increased continuity of grade which can result in significant expansion of the historic mineralization while brand new high-grade domains are targeted elsewhere along the gold-bearing McLymont Fault and numerous associated splay faults.


The second of three drill holes, building on the northern extension of the Northwest zone, intersected 15.1 g/t Au over 8.03 metres (106.32 metres to 114.35 metres), including 76 g/t Au over 1 metre, in addition to an even shallower high-grade intercept of 7.6 g/t Au, 23.1 g/t Ag and 1.03% Cu over 5.30 metres starting just 82 metres downhole (including 26.1 g/t Au over 1.3 metres);

These two shallow high grade gold zones form a thick continuous intercept of 44 metres (82 metres to 126.13 metres, approximate true width) grading 4.03 g/t Au, 4.06 g/t Ag and 0.29% Cu, in addition to a deeper wide interval of disseminated gold mineralization (77 metres @ 0.29 g/t Au) starting 157 metres downhole which points to the potential for new discoveries including more high-grade mineralization at depth;

Ongoing drilling of this significantly upgraded portion of the N W Zone Historic Resource* has encountered visually similar mineralization in the third hole completed along section with an estimated down-dip step out of approximately 22 to 30 metres. Assays are pending.

The fourth hole on section in the Newmont Lake Gold Corridor is ongoing.

Dr Peter Lightfoot, Technical Adviser to Crystal Lake, said “The western flank of the Eskay Rift is endowed with significant high-grade mineralization styles that fit with a wide range of deposit models, and require very efficient pathways for fluids and magma to migrate from depth to the surface and form ore deposits. The gold mineralization developed along the western flank of the Newmont Lake graben is part of this wider mineral system, and Crystal Lake is aggressively developing an understanding of how the high-grade gold mineralization relates to the McLymont fault, its subsidiary faults and associated hydrothermal breccias “
