Northern Lion Gold Reports Reconnaissance Drilling Results from Anglesides Project

Northern Lion Gold has reported considerable copper and gold results from the rotary drill campaign conducted at its Anglesides project.

The company has got the results of 272.37 m of drilling, totaling seven rotary holes in vertical, from the project, wherein four holes have yielded important results. These assay results are the primary reconnaissance rotary drilling results. The company has planned this rotary drilling campaign to follow up the results from the different surface rock and soil samples and the former drilling program.

Three holes, ANRD11-02, ANRD11-03 and ANRD11-05, are lined up by enclosing a strike of around 65 m long in an east-west direction. The location of the ANRD11-03 is on Anglesides showing’s east border. The company drilled the holes ANRD11-02, ANRD11-03 and ANRD11-05 to a depth of 38.1 m, 30.48 m and 45.72 m respectively and these holes ended in gold mineralization. The final sample in holes ANRD11-02, ANRD11-03 and ANRD11-05 has encountered 0.14 g/t, 0.33 g/t and 0.16 g/t of gold respectively.

This zone is shallow and lies horizontal. Northern Lion has planned for further holes to outline the level and strike of the mineralized zone.

The company applied for the Anglesides project based on the previous data obtained from the current appraisal of the obtained information from the Cyprus department’s geological survey, and data from the company's consultants. During 1930, Cyprus Mines had conducted a small amount of mining. It dug out cuprous pyrite of 88 long tonnes grading 5.98% copper and auriferous ore of 1,336 short tonnes grading 86.4 g/t silver and 24.5 g/t gold.

The Geological Survey Department had drilled the area situated immediately to the main gossans’ east direction during 1970 and cut 2.3% copper over 15.3 m.

Gossanous outcrop series are present over 150 x 100 m area in a gulley trending towards north. Northern Lion completed grab and chip samples all through this gulley and obtained grab samples as 50.1 g/t gold.

The company will continue the rotary drill campaign and will examine several potential targets.
