High grades continue at Alamos Island Gold mine

Alamos Gold of Toronto continues to cut high grades in a new area of
focus between the Eastern and Main extensions at Island Gold.
The gap between the two extensions is located within a 500 metre area
between inferred resource blocks and is only 1,000 metres from surface.
Near the Eastern extension, highlights include
102.74 g/t gold
(58.62 g/t cut) over 3.9 metres, and
31.66 g/t (31.66 g/t cut) over 3.0 metres.
The recently drilled high grades near the Main extension are
90 metres east of the previously reported intersection.
24.08 g/t gold (14.21 g/t cut) over 6.3 metres, and
6.01 g/t (6.01 g/t cut) over 10.0 metres.
Alamos says the focus of its 2019 exploration drill program at
Island Gold has been to expand the down plunge and
lateral extensions of the deposit.
Successful results put the company closer to its goal of adding
new near-mine resources across the 2-km-long Main zone.
A total of 17,973 metres of surface drilling has been
completed so far this year.
The total program includes 48,000 metres of surface directional
30,000 metres of underground drilling,
35,000 metres of delineation drilling, and
917 metres of drift development. Alamos received the necessary permits to go forward with a
phase two expansion to 1,200 t/d at Island Gold in May.
