Lexington Gold, a gold exploration and development company with projects in North and South Carolina, USA, has provided an update with respect to its latest ongoing 5000 m reverse circulation (RC) drilling programme.
- Drill campaign commenced at Carolina Belle on 18 October 2021 and is progressing on schedule.
- 17 drill holes completed for a total of 1297 m drilled to date out of the planned 5000 m total for the Phase 2 drilling programme.
- Logging and sampling of initial 15 drill holes have been completed to date.
- 4 m composite samples prepared from the first 15 drill holes and dispatched to SGS Canada's (SGS) Vancouver based laboratory for assay, with an estimated turn-around time of approximately 6 – 8 weeks.
Bernard Olivier, Lexington Gold's CEO, commented: “We are pleased with the progress made over the last two weeks and our initial visual observations from the drilling to date are very encouraging having encountered visible signs of alteration, quartz veining and sulphides in the drill chips. We are now over halfway through our planned campaign at Carolina Belle and, once completed, the drill rig will then mobilise and commence drilling on our Jones-Keystone-Loflin Project.
“We look forward to updating the market further as drilling progresses and results are received over the coming months.”
