Kesselrun Expands Size of Fisher Zone with Multiple High-Grade Intercepts






Kesselrun Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: KES) (OTC Pink: KSSRF) is pleased to provide the following drilling results on its Huronian Gold Project.


Continued drilling of the Fisher zone has been successful in confirming the continuity of the mineralization between the two high-grade shoots thus connecting them into one larger mineralized zone. The Fisher zone has now been extended to approximately 400 metres in strike length and approximately 200 metres in depth. Further drilling will continue to infill as well as expanding the size of the zone in all directions.




  • 21HUR082 intercepted 18.6 g/t Au over 1.0 m within a 3.6 m wide zone which averaged 6.0 g/t Au
  • 21HUR108 intercepted 16.2 g/t Au over 1.4 m within a 3.6 m wide zone which averaged 6.1 g/t Au
  • 21HUR112 intercepted 25.1 g/t Au over 0.6 m within a 4.9 m wide zone which averaged 5.5 g/t Au

Michael Thompson, P.Geo., President and CEO of the Company, commented, “Drilling on the Fisher zone is continuing to expand the footprint of gold mineralization both along strike and at depth. Earlier modelling suggested two separate high-grade shoots. Subsequent drilling and modelling has now revealed the continuity of gold mineralization between the two areas greatly expanding the Fisher zone size.”


The 2021 Huronian drill program is budgeted at 20,000 metres targeting the Fisher, Fisher North, McKellar and Huronian zones, all in close proximity along an approximate 1500 m strike length in the area of the historic Huronian Mine. The area also has tremendous potential for discovery of new wide zones of significant gold mineralization in light of the new revised mineralization model.


As of this news release approximately 16,750 metres has been drilled of which the results from approximately 10,750 metres of drilling have been released. Kesselrun is well funded to complete the budgeted 20,000 metre drill program.

(1) Widths are drill indicated core length as insufficient drilling has been undertaken to determine true widths with at this time. Average grades are calculated with un-capped gold assays as insufficient drilling has been completed to determine capping levels for higher grade gold intercepts.
Drill holes 21HUR108 through 112 were rushed and consequently results from significant portions of these holes are pending.


About the Huronian Gold Project


The 100% owned Huronian Gold Project hosts the past producing Huronian Mine, Northwestern Ontario’s first gold mine with an historic resource estimate of 44,592 oz Au at an average grade of 15.3 g/t Au in the indicated category and 501,377 oz Au at an average grade of 14.4 g/t Au in the inferred category. The resource estimate presented for the Huronian Project is historic in nature. Kesselrun Resources’ qualified person has not completed sufficient work to confirm the results of the historical resource. Kesselrun Resources is not treating this as a current mineral resource but is considering it relevant as a guide to future exploration and includes it for reference purposes only. The historic resource was estimated by Minescape Exploration Inc. in 1998. Further drilling will be required by Kesselrun Resources to verify the historic estimate as current mineral resources.


As well, the Huronian Gold Project hosts the same lithological package of rocks, as interpreted from both Government of Ontario and Kesselrun Resources mapping, compilation and modelling, on strike from the adjacent Moss Lake Gold Deposit with an historic resource estimate of 1,377,300 oz Au at an average grade of 1.1 g/t Au in the indicated category and 1,751,600 oz Au at an average grade of 1.1 g/t Au in the inferred category as outlined in Wesdome Gold Mines’ 2013 PEA (3) (4). Mineralization hosted on adjacent and/or nearby properties is not necessarily indicative of mineralization hosted on Kesselrun Resources’ property.


(3) Moss Lake Gold Mines (a subsidiary of Wesdome Gold Mines at the time) news releases February 20, 2013 and September 9, 2013.
(4) On January 26, 2021, Wesdome Gold Mines announced that the Moss Lake Project would be purchased by Goldshore Resources Inc. (see Wesdome and Goldshore news releases dated January 26, 2021).
