Thursday, April 1, 2021
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Canada -- Trillium Gold Mines Inc. (TSXV: TGM, OTCQX: TGLDF, FRA: 0702) reports the final results from the company's 2020 drill program at its flagship Newman Todd property in Red Lake, Ontario. The Newman Todd Zone (NT Zone) is a 2.2-kilometer-long structural target situated 26 kilometers from Evolution Mining's Red Lake operations.
Results from the final 4 drill holes of the 2020 drill campaign (NT20-176, NT20-178, to 180 totalling 1,862 meeters) are now complete and compiled. The large backlog of samples at the lab has been rectified and overdue results from our 2021 drilling are now being received. This brings total drilling at Newman Todd in 2020 to 6,081 meters in 16 drill holes, the first drilling since 2013 on the property.
"Drilling at Newman Todd continues to deliver gold even as we step toward the northern boundary. These results have aided us significantly in our reinterpretation of the structures controlling mineralization within the NT Zone and have helped with the new modeling, which is directing our current drilling," says Bill Paterson, Trillium Gold's vice president of exploration. ...
