Alamos Gold (TSX: AGI; NYSE: AGI) has drilled the highest grade intersection yet at its Island Gold mine about 85 km from Wawa, Ontario. Hole MH25-08 returned an uncut 71.21 g/t gold (39.24 g/t cut) over 21.33 metres. Hole MH25-07 returned an uncut 34.87 g/t gold (38.87 g/t cut) over 5.98 metres.
Both the previous holes were drilled from surface at the Island East target and the results have allowed Alamos to extend the high grade gold mineralization 20 metres more to the east from the nearest inferred resource block. The widths were reported to be significantly greater as well.
