Northern Tiger Resources Inc NTR:CA announced drill results from its 3Ace Property in southeast Yukon. Assays include 4.3 g/t gold over 30.3 metres (including 13.5 g/t over 8.2 metres and 10.3 g/t over 1.2 metres) and 14.8 g/t over 10.9 metres (including 145.2 g/t over 1.1 metres).
President Greg Hayes tells ResourceClips.com, “This is a new project. We optioned it this spring from a First Nations prospector. Basically, we’re starting from scratch; so our initial plan was to go out there and do our sampling, mapping and prospecting work on it this year. The results from our surface exploration were excellent; we outlined numerous occurrences of high-grade gold on surface. So we decided to do a quick drill program, and these are the first holes.
“We are quite enthused with the results. In addition to all of the encouraging surface results we’ve seen so far, our first three holes have had some really excellent gold intercepts. Moving forward, we’ll be out there next year with a lot more drilling.”
