Superior Gold Inc. Announces Best Underground Exploration Intersection To Date Outside Of Existing Resource






Superior Gold Inc. (TSX-V:SGI) is pleased to announce results from the ongoing underground diamond drill program focused on reserve and resource expansion at its 100%-owned Plutonic Gold mine in Western Australia. The drilling targeted potential extensions to the gold mineralization within the Indian Zone.


Results are provided for 19 drill holes for a total of more than 1,855 metres of drilling.




  • 17 intersections encountered more than 5g Au/t
  • 7 intersections encountered more than 10g Au/t
  • 3 intersections encountered more than 20g Au/t
  • 1 intersection encountered more than 50g Au/t


The drilling was focused on the area to the northwest of the Indian Zone within an area that extends approximately 500 metres between the Indian and Baltic Zones which has yet to be fully drill tested.


The location of this drilling is shown in Figures 1-3. The key intersections are shown in Table 1 below and all intersections are provided in Table 2. Reported intersections are over a minimum downhole width of 0.30 metres (0.20 metres true width).


Chris Bradbrook, President and CEO of Superior Gold stated: “We are extremely pleased with these drill results, which we believe continue to illustrate the potential to extend and connect the Indian and Baltic Zones, expand resources, and extend mine life. The intersection of 56.3g Au/t over 15.10 metres is our most signficant intersection to date since we acquired the

Plutonic Gold Operations, and was encountered more than 50 metres from the existing resource outline. The drilling was completed over a strike length of approximately 200 metres and a vertical extent of more than 100 metres. Mineralization remains open both up and down dip and along strike, resides close to exisiting infrastructure, and is only approximately 600 metres from surface. The Indian and Baltic Zones are key components of our five year underground Life of Mine plan that was announced in October 2019. These results illustrate the potential to extend this plan well beyond the initial five years.”




Key Intersections are summarized in Table 1 below:
