PLAYFAIR DRILLS TURNING IN IRELAND
Playfair Mining's second phase of its drill program is under way on its new gold discovery in the
Ox Mountains in County Sligo, the Republic of Ireland.
The program will carry on over the summer with the first results anticipated to be
The drill program is focused on the CAZ (Cloonacool alteration zone) structure as
defined by the 2016 exploration.
Playfair has only tested a very small part of the new gold discovery in the very large
structure at Cloonacool. Playfair's 2016 drill program, which completed 947 metres of
core drilling in nine holes, was the first ever in the area.
The primary focus of this 3,000-metre phase of drilling is within the 1.5-kilometre-long
portion of the structure proximal to the gold-bearing angular blocks that originally
focused exploration efforts on this area and led to the discovery of gold in bedrock.
The drilling will first test the structure at depth and along strike to the west of the
previous drilling where gold was discovered within an envelope of hydrothermal
alteration. The mineralization is orogenic and, as such, is expected to continue to depth.
The exploration on the balance of the 4.5-kilometre-long structure will be result driven.
