La Ronge Gold Receives Initial Gold Assays from Preview SW Deposit

La Ronge Gold has obtained the primary assay results of the first two holes drilled at the Preview SW gold deposit, located in North Saskatchewan of Canada.

Location of drill holes at the Previre SW gold deposit

The company has encountered 1.63 g/t gold over 213.9 m and 1.04 g/t gold over 196.78 m in the hole PR12-120 and has seen the occurrence of mineralized gold in wall rocks near to the high-grade gold veins. The company believes that the mineralized gold is exposed at depth and along strike.

During the late 1980s, Cameco identified the Preview SW deposit. Mesothermal lode gold, which is structurally controlled, is present in silicified zones spatially associated with the quartz veins in a sheared gabbroic-dioritic intrusion and is related to sulphides.

The gabbro-diorite sills zone has been expanded for 5200 m towards the northeast-southwest part of the property. This zone has attained a thickness of around 200 m. The Preview deposit is formed by many sub parallel shear zones, trending towards the northeast. These zones have a group of narrow quartz veins, which are either split or combined. Opening of mineralized gold along down dip and strike is shown through Cameco’s drilling results.

This program may include drilling a minimum of 2,500 m specifically designed to bring the previous resources to the present NI 43-101 standards and for extending the zone mineralization.

TSL Laboratories tested the analyzed samples that include sawn drill core, using fire assay methods.
