Wesdome drills at Wawa
Wesdome Gold Mines Ltd. (TSX: WDO) has announced recent underground drilling results from its 300E Zone (303 lens) at its Eagle River Mine, Wawa, Ontario.

Development completed in 2016 has provided access to drill this discovery, initially announced in a Press Release dated Nov. 30, 2015 (

Highlights include:

  • Hole 844-E-26 7.08 gAu/t uncut (5.86 gAu/t cut) over 8.88 m true width
  • Hole 844-E-27 28.72 gAu/t uncut (19.03 gAu/t cut) over 20.67 m true width
  • Hole 844-E-28 20.75 gAu/t uncut (13.36 gAu/t cut) over 17.94 m true width
  • Hole 844-E-29 89.61 gAu/t uncut (24.60 gAu/t cut) over 3.93 m true width
  • Hole 670-131 10.35 gAu/t uncut (10.35 gAu/t cut) over 4.32 m true width.

Duncan Middlemiss, President and CEO, said, “These results contain potential widths of up to 20 metres and are unprecedented at Eagle River. The current proximity of these intercepts to mine infrastructure coupled with the sheer volume of high-grade mineralization will potentially have near to mid-term positive production implications. Furthermore, the presence of these structures give rise to the possibility of additional zones of similar size and grade, as well as bulk mining opportunities at Eagle River.”

The Eagle River Mine commenced commercial production January 1, 1996 and has produced 1.1 million ounces of gold from 3.8 million tonnes at an average recovered grade of 9.0 gAu/tonne. The bulk of production has come from a series of tabular, steeply inclined quartz veins hosted by an elliptical quartz diorite stock. The mine is serviced by a shaft and ramp system with the deepest development to date attaining 970 metres.
