Paul Carmel, President and CEO, commented: "These results reaffirm our preliminary assessment that the C Zone appears to be an extension at depth of the zone currently being mined closer to surface at Island Gold. The latest results continue to demonstrate good continuity of the zone, with improved grades over what we are experiencing in our current operations. Our objective is to complete an initial resource calculation on this area in Q1 2013. All new additional resources would be below the existing infrastructure and reserve and resource base of the mine. We continue to be very pleased with the deep drill results at Island Gold, as they provide further support for our confidence in the long-term potential to both expand resources and increase the mine life of this operation. We continue to evaluate the possible construction of an exploration shaft, in order to accelerate the identification of deep resources at Island Gold."
