West Kirkland Mining Commences Drilling on Goldstorm Property
October 14, 2010
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, October 14, 2010 - West Kirkland Mining Inc. (WKM:TSXV) (“West Kirkland” or the “Company”) has commenced drilling on the Goldstorm Property in Elko County, Nevada. The 23 square kilometer Goldstorm Property is located approximately 18 kilometers north east from the multi-million ounce Twin Creeks/Turquoise Ridge mine, along the Getchell Trend.
“The Goldstorm Project is compelling in that it is situated near the intersection of the world class Getchell and Carlin Trends,” stated Michael G. Allen, West Kirkland’s Vice President of Exploration. “Our drill program is targeting untested geophysical anomalies that suggest the presence of a large mineralizing system with orientations along the Getchell and Carlin Trends”
With a $1,000,000 budget for diamond core drilling, West Kirkland will be targeting both sediment hosted (Carlin) and epithermal vein type mineralization. The drill program is designed to test targets generated by multiple geophysical surveys where the Carlin Trend projected onto the Property. Surface gold occurrences suggest significant gold mineralizing systems are present and the geophysical targets have not seen drill testing.
