VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mayfair Gold Corp. (“Mayfair” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: MFG) is pleased to provide an update on its fully funded 2021 ongoing gold exploration program on its 100% owned Fenn-Gib Project (“Fenn-Gib”), located 80 kilometers east of Timmins, in northern Ontario.
Infill and expansion drilling commenced within three weeks following the acquisition of Fenn-Gib and has progressed well, with over 10,000m of the planned 50,000m drill program completed to date. The drill program includes both infill and step-out drilling at 25m to 50m centers and is designed to expand the gold mineralized zones beyond the current resource.
Mayfair Gold President and CEO Patrick Evans commented: “We are very pleased with the excellent progress being made at Fenn-Gib. With three drill rigs active, we are currently well on track to achieve our planned 50,000m drill program.”
Mr. Evans added: “We are also pleased to have completed the first ever heli-borne high-resolution triaxial MAG survey at 75-metre spaced flight lines over both the North and South blocks at Fenn-Gib. Based on initial results, target selection has commenced and plans are underway to mobilize additional drill rigs to Fenn-Gib to support a regional exploration program.”
Although drilling at Fenn-Gib is progressing very well, the turnaround time at the assay laboratories remains slow. Mayfair has contracted a second assay laboratory to improve the turnaround time. Numerous assay results are pending and will be reported when received and compiled.
