Pure Gold Mining extends outcropping mineralization at Russet South

The Russet South target is a series of high grade, near-surface gold zones, located some 1.5km west of the McVeigh horizon

Drilling by Pure Gold Mining Inc. (CVE:PGM) at its Madsen gold project has successfully extended outcropping mineralization discovered in 2015 at the Russet South prospect.

The Beta and Kappa targets intersected high grade, near surface gold mineralization within close proximity to the existing mining infrastructure, Pure Gold said.

The 2016 drill program at Madsen, in Red Lake, Ontario, is mainly focused on potential resource expansion within the McVeigh horizon, but a smaller sub-set of drilling was completed in early 2016 at the Russet South area where previous drilling and channel sampling by Pure Gold defined three separate targets: Alpha, Beta and Kappa.

These targets share a similar geologic environment to Madsen's 8 Zone resource which is situated 1.6 kilometres down dip on the same geologic contacts.

"Together with Alpha, the Beta and Kappa gold zones highlight the near surface potential of the Russet South area, with both of these targets outcropping at surface, intersected to a vertical depth of 70 metres, and open at depth. The extension of high grade gold in multiple target areas at Russet South, combined with the ongoing two-rig drill testing of expansion potential within the McVeigh horizon continues to advance our goal of unlocking the exploration potential of Madsen," said Darin Labrenz, president and chief executive officer of Pure Gold.

The Russet South target is a series of high grade, near-surface gold zones, located some 1.5 kilometres west of the McVeigh horizon and associated mine infrastructure.

Along with the drilling results, which can be accessed here, the company announced that Phil Smerchanski, director of Geoscience, has been appointed as vice president of Exploration, replacing Darren O'Brien, who leaves with the board's best wishes.
Technical advisor Christopher Lee takes over as Chief Geoscientist now that Smerchanski has changed roles.
