Mining News: More gold, drilling at Committee Bay

Auryn Resources Inc. Aug. 24 reported results from 21 out 148 holes drilled so far during the summer program at the Committee Bay gold project in Nunavut. Drilling at West Plains, which is at the southwest end of the 250-kilometer- (155 miles) long Committee Bay property, continues to show promise. Highlights from the six holes reported from West Plains include 9.15 meters of 3.48 grams per metric ton gold in hole 17WPR055; 9.15 meters of 2.89 g/t gold in 17WPR052; and 6.1 meters of 2.54 g/t gold in 17WPR053. The bottom 1.53 meters of hole 53 averaged 7.48 g/t and ended in mineralization where the hole was lost. The company has expanded its 2017 program to drill five additional targets identified by gold-in till-anomalies and outcropping mineralization. The two most intriguing new targets Kinng Mountain and Kinng Gold are situated in the northeastern half of the property. Grab samples at Kinng Mountain returned grades as high as 40.04 g/t gold and Kinng Gold outcrop samples returned 15.12 g/t gold. Auryn added 4,000 meter to the Committee Bay drill program, for a total of 29,000 meters for 2017.
