Global Mining Review,

Lexington Gold, a gold exploration and development company with projects in North and South Carolina, USA, has received the remaining assay results with respect to Loflin further to the company's recently completed 5000 m reverse circulation (RC) drilling programme.


Final assay results from the drilling programme at Loflin included shallow level infill drilling and testing of the North-Eastern, South-Western and Southern boundaries and extensions, with the following selected results:

  • Hole LFRC-018: 24 m at 1.07 g/t gold (Au) and 2.76 g/t silver (Ag) from 4 m to 28 m, including:
    • 4 m at 2.34 g/t Au and 6.41 g/t Ag from 24 m to 28 m.
  • Hole LFRC-009: 16 m at 1.27 g/t Au and 3.79 g/t Ag from 16 m to 32 m, including:
    • 8 m at 1.76 g/t Au and 6.48 g/t Ag from 20 m to 28 m.
    • 4 m at 1.93 g/t Au and 6.11 g/t Ag from 24 m to 28 m.
  • Hole LFRC-010: 4 m at 0.58 g/t Au from 48 m to 52 m.
  • Hole LFRC-016: 4 m at 0.73 g/t Au from 4 m to 8 m.
  • Hole LFRC-011 intersected a cavity created by historic underground workings between 10 m and 20 m below surface. A 2 m intersection immediately above the cavity returned grades of 0.42 g/t Au from 8 m to 10 m.
  • Drilling has extended the known north-eastern deposit boundary and confirmed that the deposit remains open to the north-east towards the direction of Jones-Keystone.
  • Loflin deposit appears to pinch off in a South-Westerly direction, but the drilling results also indicate that the deposit opens towards the south and south-east and potentially links in with the Loflin South deposit, with intersections including 3.6 m at 1.67 g/t Au between 20 m to 56 m as recently announced.
  • Assay results returned silver values of up to 6.9 g/t Ag associated with gold mineralisation and zones of high sulfide alteration.

Bernard Olivier, Lexington Gold's CEO, commented: “The drilling results for Loflin continue to return significant shallow level intersections including intersections outside of the known north-eastern boundary of the main Loflin resource. The main Loflin deposit remains open to the north-east and also to the south and south-east and potentially links up with Loflin South.”
