Hemlo Explorers Inc. (TSX-V: HMLO) is pleased to provide an update on its drill program at the North Limb project, located 15 km north of Barrick Gold Corporation’s Hemlo Mine near Marathon, Ontario.
As has been reported with the drill results from the Musher (see press release dated July 27, 2021) and Armand (see press release dated August 24, 2021) showings, multi-element ICP data using ioGAS© geochemical software has identified widespread pathfinder elements such as Ag, Sb, As, V, and Hg at the Lunny West showing. Some of these elements are positively correlated with Au mineralization, while others define broader horizons indicating a more extensive corridor of hydrothermal activity.
Brian Howlett, CEO of Hemlo Explorers, commented “We are very pleased with the drill results announced today which further demonstrate widespread contiguous anomalous gold and elevated pathfinder elements at North Limb project. This hydrothermal system has now been identified at the Armand, Musher and Lunny West showings over a strike length of 5 kms covering most of the ALVC trend. Our ability to integrate historical drillhole data is ongoing and integral to the evolving geological interpretation.”

The North Limb geological setting resembles that of the Hemlo Deposit with felsic to intermediate volcanic and sedimentary assemblages, quartz-feldspar intrusives in a district scale, high strain arcuate structural regime. Much of the mineralization at the Hemlo Deposit is confined to high strain zones and spatially associated with the contact between felsic volcanic rocks and sedimentary rocks. Similar alteration of silica, sericite, feldspar and vanadium to that of the Hemlo Deposit is found with anomalous gold along the Armand and Musher Horizons which have strike lengths of 7 and 8 kilometres, respectively.
