Wesdome Gold Mines: Continues to Define High Grade Kiena Zones Near Underground and Surface Infrastructure


TORONTOWesdome Gold Mines Ltd. (TSX: WDO) (“Wesdome” or the “Company”) today announces the results of underground exploration drilling from the Kiena Deep Zone and the initial results of surface exploration drilling at facilities wholly owned by the Company Kiena mining complex in Val-d’Or, Quebec.

Kiena Deep A Zone and drilling of the wall area

At March 23, 2021, Wesdome announced the discovery of a new high-grade gold zone in the Zone A wall (the Wall area), which has been the focus of our infill drilling over the past few months.

The wall area is interpreted as lenses of gold mineralization located in a 50 meter (‘m’) wide corridor adjacent to the lower wall of the Zone A2. Gold mineralization is associated with visible quartz +/- gold veins that are spatially associated with units of amphibolite-altered komatiite, basaltic komatiite and basalt.

Because recent drilling has been affected by the shortage of skilled drillers across the industry, 11 holes and their corners have reached the Footwall and A areas since the last press release. As such, additional drilling is still necessary to determine the geometry of the mineralized lenses forming the corridor of the Wall area. The orientation, dip and geometry of these new lenses will need to be confirmed in order to determine the true widths. However, it is interpreted that the Footwall zone is parallel to the A zone and extends for at least 300 m. The mineralization remains open laterally and at depth.

Additionally, recent high-grade Zone A drill intersections inside and outside the current Zone A resource block model show the potential to extend the current resource estimate.


The health and safety of our employees, contractors, suppliers and consultants is the Company’s top priority. In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, Wesdome has adopted all public health guidelines regarding safety measures and protocols in all of its mining operations and offices. In addition, our intern COVID-19 Working Group continues to monitor developments and implement policies and programs designed to protect those engaged in business with the Company.

Through care and planning, the Company has been successful in sustaining its operations to this day, but there can be no assurance that this will continue despite our best efforts. Future conditions may justify reduced or suspended production activities, which could negatively impact our ability to maintain planned schedules and targets. As a result, the Company’s actual future production and its production forecast are subject to higher levels of risk than usual. We continue to monitor the situation closely and will provide updates as they become available.
