Claude Resources (CRJ.TSX, AMEX: CGR) released a summary of results from its recently completed 2012 drill program at the Santoy Gap, located within the Company’s 100%-owned, 14,400 hectare Seabee Gold Project. The Canadian gold mining company announced that newly released results have extended the mineralized system down-dip to 650 meters depth and along strike to the south toward the Santoy 8 Mine.
Claude Resources also reported that the program has discovered a sub-parallel lens to the Santoy Gap, approximately 150 meters to the east. The latest drill intercepts continue to confirm the high prospectivity of the Santoy Regional Shear Zone, hosting multiple deposits over a three kilometer strike length.
