Carlisle Goldfields update on 2012 drilling programs on its Lynn Lake Camp Properties
TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwire – Nov. 14, 2012) – Carlisle Goldfields Limited (“Carlisle” or the “Company”) (TSX:CGJ)(OTCQX:CGJCF) is pleased to provide an update on the 2012 exploration drilling program on its Farley Lake Mine Project and announce the newest area of interest in the Lynn Lake Camp called the Dunvegan Zone. The current drill program at the Farley Lake Mine Project will be the Company’s main focus for the remainder of 2012.
Over the course of 2012, Carlisle has released NI 43-101 compliant resource estimates on two of its five known deposits, and has identified several new areas of interest for further exploration. The Company plans to release new compliant resource estimates on the Linkwood and the Last Hope deposits before the end of 2012 with the Farley Lake resource estimate expected in late Q1 2013.
Peter Karelse P.Geo, the Company’s Vice-President of Exploration commented that “We are excited to resume drilling at Farley Lake. The historical drilling and previous mining at this deposit point to this being a significant project. We will also be focusing on the Dunvegan Zone in early 2013 which we believe shows considerable potential.”
Bruce Reid, President of Carlisle Goldfields stated, “The drills turning at Farley Lake once again puts us on target to deliver the resource estimates on our remaining three projects for the 2012 program. We are excited for the potential of these three new resource estimates to add to our global Lynn Lake Camp resources. We look forward to expanding the camp by identifying new zones and gaining a better understanding of this potentially prolific Greenstone Belt.”
Progress on the 2012 exploration drilling program is as follows:
|Farley Lake Mine Project:|
- Drilling at Farley Lake has resumed and is the focus of drilling for the remainder of 2012.
- A NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate on the project is expected by March 2013.
- Three previously drilled holes were released on October 3, 2012, highlighting 10 metres of 5.9 g/t Au.
- Drilling in 21 holes for a total of 6500 metres will be focused along an 800-metre strike length, located near the previously mined pits to the west end of the deposit.
- Additional claims have been staked both northwest and southeast of the present claim block. An additional 80 line kilometres of IP geophysics will commence by November 15th, with an end of December 2012 completion date.
