Nighthawk Drills 20.25 Metres of 4.83 g/t Gold and 19.60 Metres of 4.19 g/t Gold in Newly Discovered High-Grade Gold Shoot at Goldcrest; Extends Mineralization Further at Colomac
TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Sept. 25, 2014) - Nighthawk Gold Corp. ("Nighthawk") (TSX VENTURE:NHK) is pleased to report the first drill results from fourteen holes (Table 1 / Figures 1, 2) recently completed as part of the 2014 drill program on its Indin Lake Gold Property in the Northwest Territories ("NWT"). The ongoing 14,000 metre drill program, designed to extend the previously reported mineral resource estimate (June 17, 2013 news release) to depth at the Goldcrest and Colomac Main gold deposits, has confirmed significant opportunities for expansion.
Highlights include two Goldcrest holes, which substantiate a north plunging mineralized shoot; hole G14-05 intersected 20.25 metres of 4.83 grams per tonne ("g/t") gold, including 5.25 metres of 10.21 g/t gold and hole G14-04 intersected 19.60 metres of 4.19 g/t gold, including 7.90 metres of 7.85 g/t gold. At the Colomac Main deposit, hole C14-02 intersected 25.00 metres grading 2.38 g/t gold, including 8.75 metres of 4.98 g/t gold, effectively tracing Zone 2.0 mineralization down plunge of previously drilled higher grade shoots.
