Pilot Gold Inc. (TSE: PLG) said Thursday it is resuming its $6 million, 25,600-metre program at Kinsley Mountain, Nevada.

The Vancouver-based exploration company, which holds a 79% stake in the Elko Country-based project, has shown strong results from its winter program.

“The high-grade mineralization at the Western Flank discovery remains wide open and we look forward to growing this zone and testing other high potential targets across the property,” said Matt Lennox-King, president and CEO in a statement.

Pilot Gold was created in 2011 as a part of Newmont Mining Corporation’s acquisition of Fronteer Gold Inc.

Thursday's report highlighted the 12-hole, 4,230-metre 2014 winter diamond drilling program at the Western Flank:
  • 6.85 g/t Au over 41.7 metres in PK127
  • 10.5 g/t Au over 42.7 metres in PK131C
  • 7.53 g/t Au over 53.3 metres in PK132C
  • 10.6 g/t Au over 30.0 metres in PK133C
  • 1.44 g/t Au over 12.2 metres and 2.84 g/t Au over 18.9 metres in PK134C
  • 21.3 g/t Au over 29.0 metres in PK137C
  • 15.6 g/t Au over 38.7 metres in PK137CA

The remaining 21,370-metres in the 2014 drill program, said the junior company, will focus on step out drilling around the high-grade mineralization in the Western Flank target, located 550 metres northwest of the past -producing pits at Kinsley, as well as other high conviction targets across the property.
