Premier exploration drilling intersects high grade at Mercedes Mine & Hasaga

 

 

 

 

 

 

Premier Gold Mines Limited (TSX-PG) is pleased to provide a summary of recent drill results from the Company’s 100%-owned Mercedes Mine located in the State of Sonora, Mexico and at the 100%-owned Hasaga Project located inRed Lake, Ontario. Mercedes drilling is focused on in-fill and expansion of mineralization near underground workings and Hasaga drilling on expansion of the high grade C-Zone at depth below the open pit resource.

Highlights of the Aida Vein include:  

 

  • Hole M18-065D:  18.3 m of 38.28 g/t Au and 25.98 g/t Ag
  • Hole M18-873D:  12.0 m of 37.29 g/t Au and 32.96 g/t Ag

Highlights of the C-Zone include:  

 

  • Hole HMP151w2:  75.0m of 3.10 g/t Au, including 16.0m of 8.67 g/t Au
  • Hole HMP169w2:  23.0m of 3.57 g/t Au, including 11.0m of 5.78 g/t Au
  • Hole HMP173:  63.0m of 4.02 g/t Au, including 14.0m of 10.25 g/t Au

 

 

“We are very pleased that that both projects continue to generate such compelling drill results,” commented Stephen McGibbon, Executive Vice-President of Premier Gold Mines Ltd in the Company’s C-Suite Blog (http://www.premiergoldmines.com/news/c-suite-blog). “At Hasaga, the C-Zone and D-Zone targets are clearly structurally-controlled and appear to be open for further expansion, while defining such high grades close to our mine workings at Mercedes will support improved operational performance.”

 

 

Mercedes Mine

 

 

The 2018 exploration program is focused on the expansion of potential high-grade, near-infrastructure targets that may be upgraded to resources. Early results of the 45,000-metre surface and underground drilling program have identified a highly prospective near-surface, high-grade vein (Aida Vein) in the upper part of the main Mercedes vein system. Recent results from surface drilling in the Aida Vein are summarized in Table 1, with ongoing drilling designed to follow-up significant intercepts from previous programs aimed at defining new reserves.

 

 

Later in 2018, and into 2019, drilling will focus on the Marianas Zone located down-plunge along the main Mercedes vein structure. A drift is underway to access Marianas from the Lagunas mine workings to allow for definition drilling of this target.

Hasaga Red Lake Project

 

 

The Hasaga Property is located in the Red Lake Greenstone Belt (RLGB), an Archean-aged greenstone belt within the Uchi Sub-province of the Superior Structural Province. The Red Lakedistrict has produced nearly 29 million ounces of gold from multiple mineralization settings. Gold mineralization at the Hasaga Property occurs as quartz-veinlet stockworks veinlet arrays hosted predominantly within the Dome Stock (a granodioritic intrusion) or a nearby quartz-porphyry dike that occurs within the proximal Balmer Assemblage.

 

 

Recent results of the 20,000 metre, US$2.8 million drill from surface drilling are summarized in Table 2. Previous results from the C-Zone and D-Zone target areas were reported on April 10th, 2018 (click here).
