Superior Gold Inc. Announces Underground Drilling Continues To Generate Very Strong Grades

INTERSECTIONS INCLUDE 67.7 G AU/T OVER 0.90 METRES, 52.9 G AU/T OVER 1.00 METRES, AND 13.1 G AU/T OVER 5.95 METRES

TORONTO, Aug. 31, 2017 /CNW/ - Superior Gold Inc. ("Superior Gold" or the "Company") (TSX.V:SGI) is pleased to announce additional results from the ongoing underground diamond drill program at its 100%-owned Plutonic Gold Mine in Western Australia. The drilling was conducted from early May to mid-June 2017.

Results are provided for 104 drill holes for a total of more than 7,000 metres. The drill holes were completed for resource definition and grade control purposes. Resource definition was designed to increase the confidence level of the resource in areas where drilling was limited. Grade control drilling was completed to provide additional information for stope design ahead of mining.

The drilling focussed on 5 zones – Baltic; Caribbean; Caspian; Indian; and Timor. A number of significant intersections were encountered. 

KEY FINDINGS

  • 87 intersections encountered more than 5g Au/t

  • 30 intersections encountered more than 10g Au/t

  • 11 intersections encountered more than 20g Au/t

The location of the most significant intersections are shown in Figure 1 and the details of all holes are summarized by zone in Table 2.

Chris Bradbrook, President and CEO of Superior Gold stated: "As with our previously released results (May 11, 2017 and August 2, 2017), these results continue to demonstrate the strength of the mineralized system at the Plutonic Gold Mine. We are extremely encouraged by these drill results and continue to work towards increasing the confidence level in the resources. One of our principal goals is to grow the level of underground reserves and to extend the mine life."
