$FFOXF FireFox Gold Drills 93.88 g/t Gold over 1.35 Metres at Mustajärvi Project, Finland
SODANKYLÄ, FINLAND – (June 17, 2021) – FireFox Gold Corp. (TSX.V: FFOX)(OTCQB: FFOXF)(“FireFox” or the “Company”) has completed the expanded 11 hole Phase 4 diamond drill program (2,364 metres) at its 100%-owned Mustajärvi Project in the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt of Finland. Today the Company reports assay results for the first three holes of the program. Hole 21MJ001 is a significant highlight yielding 1.35m averaging 93.88 g/t gold, including 0.65m at 129.5 g/t gold. This interval was previously reported to host visible gold in a quartz-carbonate-tourmaline (QCT) vein with abundant pyrite (see Company news release dated April. 15, 2021). With the two additional high-grade gold intervals of 5.27 g/t and 26.9 g/t, this drill hole included a total of more than 150 gram – metres of gold.
Near surface high-grade intervals were encountered in both of the first two holes of the program, as shown in Table 1. These drill holes extend high-grade gold in the Northeast Target by an additional 150 metres along strike to the northeast (See Figure 1: https://bit.ly/3cLi1OX
). This newly discovered veining and alteration occurs at depths less than 200m below surface and remains open down dip and to the northeast (See Figure 2: https://bit.ly/3pZvCYi
). The FireFox team is anxious to follow up with closely spaced drilling to test this new high-grade zone, the richest yet discovered at Mustajärvi.
“Since 2018 we have methodically built up our knowledge of the geology and structure, vectoring towards the heart of this high-grade gold at Mustajärvi. Our modeling is clearly paying off, and we are thrilled that the initial hole in the 2021 drill program has resulted in the first 100-gram-metre interval at the project. The Northeast Target is proving to be very exciting, and we look forward to results from the remaining two holes in this area, as well as the step-outs farther northeast along the shear zone,” commented Carl Löfberg, President and CEO of FireFox.
