- Landore Resources says latest drilling has extended the BAM East gold prospect on its Junior Lake Property, Ontario, Canada.

Landore remobilised to site on the 30 June to undertake a 3,500m drill programme to test the east, west and down dip extensions of the new gold zone following the positive results from drilling on the prospect, announced on 4 April.

To date, 15 NQ diamond drill holes (0416-524 to 0416-538), for 2,613m, have been completed with results received for the first 4 drill holes. Highlights: - Drilling continues to report wide zones of gold mineralisation including high grade intersections with drill hole 0416-526 reporting 38.50 metres (m) at 3.42 grams/tonne (g/t) gold including 1.94m at 34.69g/t gold, 3m at 8.84g/t gold and 3m at 6.61g/t gold.

- Visible gold: 10 of the 15 drill holes completed to date have multiple instances of visible gold (VG) up to 2 millimetres long occurring as singular pieces or in clusters contained in or adjacent to quartz veinlets.

- Drilling at 50m stations has extended the BAM East Gold Prospect lithology to 400m along strike and up to 150m down dip. The prospect remains open along strike to the east and west and down dip.

Landore's mineral exploration consultant Chris Cooper said: "BAM East gold mineralisation is a typical shear-hosted gold-bearing system in an Archaean greenstone belt. The local intensity of the quartz-gold veins focussed by shear style deformation is such that potentially economic mineralisation could be present with a zone up to at least 38m true thickness, possibly more. The mineralisation is structurally lead and not bound to any one lithology. Ultimately the style of the shear induced fractures will determine the width of the prospective vein zones.

"The mineralisation is open to the East and West and to current drill depth. Mineralisation is open to surface, below the overburden. The prospective area under consideration is also big enough to host other similar gold mineralisation or could host a much larger deposit. "The gold is from sub-visible size to large, 2mm, pieces and is free gold and not thought to be encapsulated in sulphides or bound to sulphides.

"The style of mineralisation has many corollaries with similar commercial gold deposits in the Canadian Shield, noteworthy are those also in the Superior Province such as Kirkland Lake, Hollinger-McIntyre, Kerr-Adison and Sigma-Lamarque"
