Lake Winn Resources Corp. Awards Drilling Contract for the Cloud Gold Project Manitoba
The rig will mobilize on December 7th for a 1500m drill program with provision to expand to at least 3000m.
The project will be under the direct supervision of Carey Galeschuck P. Geo in Manitoba.
The drill target is a orogenic gold type target hosted in paleo-proterozic mafic volcanics in a similar setting to that found at the Tartan gold mine 14km to the east of the Cloud project.
A 320m by 50m zone of metamorphosed mafic volcanics, returned numerous high grade gold values when exposed by pitting in 1990. These results are shown in the accompanying figure 1. The results were later confirmed by check sampling that also returned high gold values. Visible gold was also noted. These predominately grab samples do not demonstrate economic viability as they are not representative, but they do show the zone to be mineralized. Silver also showed anomalous values. We are calling this zone the Bachnick Gold zone named after the prospector the carried out the work.

The Bachnick zone is nestled within a resistivity anomaly and lies to the north of a prominent IP anomaly. These will all be targeted in the upcoming drill campaign about to commence. The IP and Resistivity anomalies continue, slightly displaced by faulting for 1300m along strike and these extensions will also be drilled should the first test holes prove encouraging.
