McLaren Resources Commences Drill Program at TimGinn Property Adjacent to Hollinger Mine, Timmins, Ontario
Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - September 25, 2018) - McLaren Resources Inc. (CSE: MCL) (FSE: 3ML) (OTC: MLRNF) ("McLaren" / the "Company") announces that it intends to undertake approximately 2,200 metres of exploration diamond drilling in three or more holes to test historic high grade gold mineralization on the north section of the TimGinn Property which is situated adjacent to the Hollinger and McIntyre Gold Mines operated by Goldcorp Canada Ltd. ("Goldcorp"). Drilling is planned to commence during the last week of September.
The program will test the vicinity of an historic diamond drill hole that intersected 6.3 gpt Au over 16.7 m incl. 30.2 gpt Au / 2.7 m (Source: Ontario Ministry of Northern Development and Mines, assessment file T-200, Consolidated Gilles Lake Mine Ltd.). The objective will be to both confirm and expand the gold mineralization on the northern section of the property as seen on the attached figure. The historic gold mineralization occurs within a favourable geological environment that includes quartz-feldspar porphyry (QFP) and ankerite altered mafic volcanics. This represents a favourable geology and alteration typical of Timmins area gold mines.
The Goldcorp Hollinger Open Pit Mine is located 100 metres from the TimGinn Property boundary. The TimGinn Property hosts the former producing Gilles Lake Gold Mine. Earlier exploration at this section of the property by McLaren has produced results such as:
- MTG-11-02 - 24.2 gpt Au / 1.1 metres
- MTG-11-04 - 7.0 gpt Au / 7.4 metres
- MTG-11-05 - 4.1 gpt Au / 5.5 metres
