Marathon's Deep Drilling Intersects 5.0 meters of 11.08 g/t Au at Depth of 900 meters (3,000 ft.), Valentine Lake Gold Camp, Newfoundland
TORONTO, ON--(April 27, 2017) - Marathon Gold Corporation ("Marathon" or the "Company")(TSX: MOZ) is delighted to announce high-grade gold assays through thick intervals of stacked quartz-tourmaline-pyrite (QTP) veining with visible gold in drill holes MA-17-174 and MA-17-175, the deepest holes ever drilled at the Marathon Deposit, Valentine Lake Gold Camp. These sub-vertical holes, spaced 180 apart meters along strike, were drilled down through the mineralized corridor of the Marathon Deposit and both intersected abundant, wide intervals of QTP veining with numerous occurrences of visible gold (VG) at depths of up to 950 meters. As a result of drilling from 2014 to date, the uniformity of mineralization in the Marathon Deposit, encountered both at depth and along strike, is indicative of an extensive and strong mineralizing system.
Drill hole MA-17-175 intersected wide intervals of intermittent moderate to high-grade gold to depths of 966 meters, including 1.77 g/t Au over 101 meters with 6.48 g/t Au over 7 meters and 7.92 g/t Au over 4.0 meters, 4.09 g/t Au over 19.0 meters with 12.54 g/t Au over 5 meters and 3.25 g/t Au over 32.0 meters with 11.08 g/t over 5.0 meters.
