Kesselrun Resources Extends Drilling at Huronian Gold Project
Thunder Bay, ON – September 3, 2020 – Kesselrun Resources Ltd. (TSXV: KES) (OTCPK: KSSRF) (“Kesselrun” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that drilling has been extended at its Huronian Gold Project.
The original planned drill program consisted of a total of 2,500 metres and management has decided to extend the program for a total of a minimum of 3,000 metres.
Drilling is focusing on the Fisher, Fisher North and McKellar zones, as well as the historically mined Huronian zone, with the goal of testing newly interpreted structural components and controls on gold mineralization. All the zones are proximal to the historically mined Huronian zone, no farther than 400 metres along strike.
Michael Thompson, P.Geo., President and CEO of the Company, commented, “The visuals of the drill core, although preliminary in nature, have given us the confidence to commit to extending the scope of the current drill program.”
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 @ 15.3 g/t Au in the indicated category and 501,377 oz Au @ 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 is included 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 Wesdome Gold’s adjacent Moss Lake Gold Deposit with a resource estimate of 1,377,300 oz Au @ 1.1 g/t Au in the indicated category and 1,751,600 oz Au @ 1.1 g/t Au in the inferred category as outlined in their 2013 PEA1. Mineralization hosted on adjacent and/or nearby properties is not necessarily indicative of mineralization hosted on Kesselrun Resources’ property.
Michael Thompson, P.Geo., President and CEO of Kesselrun, is the Qualified Person responsible for the project as defined by National Instrument 43-101 and has approved the technical information in this news release.
