Hy Lake Gold Inc. has announced that it has completed an extensive mapping and channel sampling program at its West Red Lake properties. A total of 11 sites were sampled and 225 samples were collected. Comprehensive data was compiled during the program and a report, including assay results, is pending.
Nine sites were located at the Company's 100%-owned Mount Jamie Mine property and two sites were located at its 60%-owned Rowan Lake Mine property, held in a Joint Venture with Red Lake Gold Mines, a General Partnership of Goldcorp Inc. and Goldcorp Canada Ltd. The sampling program was complementary to previous structural mapping and drilling, and was intended to generate additional target zones for future drill testing. Sampling was conducted with particular attention to alteration zones with fuchsite, zones of shearing, quartz veins, and strong sulfide mineralization in variable lithologies.
Seven new sites were stripped, washed, mapped and sampled. Three historic sites were re-mapped and sampled, without clearing or washing. The 225 samples collected were sent to ActLabs, an accredited mineral analysis laboratory in Red Lake, Ontario, for preparation and analysis utilizing both fire assay and screen metallic methods. Certified gold reference standards, blanks and field duplicates have been routinely inserted into the sample stream as part of Hy Lake's quality control/quality assurance program. The results from the Actlabs are expected by the end of October 2011.
Tanya Matveeva, M.Sc., P. Geol. and Michael Schweinberger, M.Sc. managed the stripping, mapping and sampling program. A detailed report on the program was submitted by Ms. Matveeva. The report, with the assays results, will be released once final results are available and have been analysed by the Company.
