VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA - West Kirkland Mining Inc. (WKM:TSXV) (“West Kirkland” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on its Kirkland Lake drill program.
Assay results for the first hole on the Cunningham Property have been received and validated by the Company. They include an uncapped intercept of 19.79 g/t Au over 7.9 m within a broader zone of 23.0 meters of 7.61 g/t Au. To date five holes totaling 1,528 meters have been drilled into the Cunningham Property. The Company is awaiting results for the remaining holes.
KC1008 Drill Results:
This hole was designed to confirm previous drilling in the “M2” showing. True width is visually estimated to be between 65 and 95 percent of core length. The reported intercept contains numerous multi gram assays, the three highest assays are 1.0 m of 23.5 g/t Au, 0.6 m of 20.6 g/t Au and 0.7 m of 150 g/t Au.
“Initial drilling results on the Cunningham Property are very exciting and validate previous drilling” stated Michael G. Allen, West Kirkland’s Vice President of Exploration. “The Cunningham Property ties in with the recently acquired McLean and Sutton Properties and cover approximately five kilometers of mineralized structure that we will be aggressively exploring.”
The Company has drilled an additional 2,580 meters in nine holes on regional targets. No significant results have been received to date.
Drilling will continue on the Company’s Kirkland Lake properties until the Christmas break and restart in early 2011.
