(WKM:TSXV) (“West Kirkland” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the start of a planned $1 million dollar drill program in the prolific Kirkland Lake Belt. Drilling by the Company will initially focus on geophysical and geochemical targets and will then follow up on historic drill intercepts.

West Kirkland’s Vice President of Exploration, Michael Allen, said “We’re pleased to now be drilling in the prolific Kirkland Lake Belt after weeks of preparation. The number of quality targets on our properties and the potential for discovery should make for an exciting drill program.”
West Kirkland’s President, R.
