Emgold Mining Corporation announced that it has completed 3,021 m of diamond drilling at the Casa South Property, Quebec. Core logging is underway and initial samples have been sent for assaying, with assays pending. The main objective of the drill program was to test the Kama Trend gold bearing structure located just to the south of the Property boundary with Hecla Mining Corporation's Casa Berardi Mine. The Kama Trend structure is a 7 km long by 2 km wide east-west gold bearing structure discovered in the 1980's. It hosts numerous anomalous gold zones with historic assays above 300 ppb gold. The Kama Trend is a carbonatized andesite containing up to 7% arsenopyrite with variable amounts of pyrite.

Holes CS-19-01, CS-19-02, CS-19-04, CS-19-05, CS-19-06, CS-19-07, and CS-19-08 all intersected the Kama Trend structure with variable widths from 4.5 m up to 18.3 m. In addition, Hole CS-19-03 shows a volcanic breccia in interval 99 m to 114 m with 10% quartz-carbonate veining hosting 5-10% sulfides and ankerite replacement by arsenopyrite. Moreover, numerous cases of ductile deformation have been observed in most holes indicating that other mineralizing events may have occurred.
