  • Drilling in Deeper Zone of Marathon Deposit Hits 3.10 g/t Au over 19.3 meters (TT) & 3.61 g/t Au over 18.0 meters (TT), Valentine Gold Camp 2016-11-02

    TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - November 02, 2016) - Marathon Gold Corporation ("Marathon" or the "Company") (TSX: MOZ) announces very positive results from continued drilling at the Marathon Deposit, Valentine Gold Camp. New drill holes MA-16-121, MA-16-122, MA-16-125, MA-16-127, MA-16-128 and MA-16-129 intersected significant intervals of good-grade gold mineralization at both shallow and deeper intervals within the Marathon Deposit area. Deeper drill holes MA-16-127, MA-16-128 and MA-16-129, along with previously reported drill holes MA-16-116, MA-16-113, MA-16-112, MA-16-111, MA-16-107, MA-16-101, MA-15-032 and MA-15-047, have all intersected wide intervals of higher grade gold at depth and define the deeper mineralized corridor within the Marathon Deposit (Figure 1). Step-out drilling to the southwest continued to intersect shallow as well as deeper mineralization. The 50-100-meter-wide (TT) subvertical mineralized corridor of the Marathon Deposit is open along strike and now extends to depth in excess of 350 meters. A second drill commenced operation at the Marathon Deposit on October 28, 2016 in advance of the anticipated 2017 resource update.

  • Drilling at the Marathon Deposit Increases Strike of Deeper Mineralized Corridor Hitting 2.16 g/t Au (cut) Over 66.3 Meters (TT),Valentine Lake Gold Camp 2016-09-27

    TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - September 27, 2016) - Marathon Gold Corporation ("Marathon" or the "Company") (TSX: MOZ) announced today continued success from the ongoing drilling campaign at the Marathon Deposit, Valentine Gold Camp. New drill holes MA-16-114, MA-16-116, MA-16-117, MA-16-118 and MA-16-119 intersected significant intervals of good-grade gold mineralization with MA-16-116 intercepting wide gold intervals up to 70 meters down-dip of previous drilling on the Marathon Deposit (Figure 1). Previously reported drill holes MA-16-113, MA-16-112, MA-16-111, MA-16-107, MA-16-101 and extended drill holes MA-15-032 and MA-15-047 all intersected similar wide intervals of higher grade gold at depth (Figure 1). The new drilling further confirms the continuity of the 50-100 meter wide (true thickness) sub-vertical mineralized corridor of the Marathon Deposit, which is currently open along strike and extends to depth in excess of 250 meters. Marathon's current drilling is now focused on expanding the Marathon Deposit towards the southwest along strike and to depth. In early October, Marathon will add a second drill at the Leprechaun Deposit in support of a revised resource estimate expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2017.

  • Marathon and Leprechaun Deposits Amenable to Heap Leach With High Gold Extraction From Minus Half Inch Short Column Testing 2016-09-14

  • Marathon Deposit Grows Larger With New Drill Results: 2.11 g/t Au (Cut) Over 68.3 Meters (TT) and 1.33 g/t Over 48.8 Meters (TT) 2016-08-09

    TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - August 09, 2016) - Marathon Gold Corporation ("Marathon" or the "Company") (TSX: MOZ) is pleased to announce continued positive results from its latest drilling at the Marathon Deposit, Valentine Gold Camp. New drill holes MA-16-107 and MA-16-11 have both intercepted very wide intervals of good-grade gold mineralization for up to 80 meters down-dip of previous drilling on the Marathon Deposit (Figure 1, Section 17250 in www.marathon.com). These new drill holes further confirm the continuity of the 50-100 meter wide (TT) mineralized corridor of the Marathon Deposit that is currently open along strike and extends to depth for more than 250 meters. Previously reported drill holes MA-16-101 and extended drill holes MA-15-032, MA-15-039 and MA-15-047 also intersected similar wide intervals of higher grade gold at depth (Figure 1, PR's June 21, 2016, July 6, 2016 & July 28, 2016). Shallower drilling intercepted significant mineralization up to 250 meters southwest of the current Marathon resource pit shell and in the hanging wall of the deposit (Figure 1).

Long Harbour Information

  • General 2015-05-10
    The Voisey's Bay development consists of three major components: an integrated mine and concentrator at the Voisey'’s Bay site in Labrador that will process ore from the Voisey's Bay deposit; a demonstration hydrometallurgical plant in Argentia to confirm the technological and commercial application of hydrometallurgical technology for Voisey's Bay concentrate; and a processing facility. Construction of the mine and concentrator is complete and mining activity is underway. Vale Inco began processing its first ore in August 2005. Construction of the hydromet demonstration plant was completed in October 2005 and the final phase of the R&D program was completed and the demonstration plant closed in June 2008. Following the completion of the R&D program, Vale Inco will construct a processing facility at Long Harbour, Newfoundland that will produce finished nickel product. Based on what we know today, this facility will cost in the order of US$2.2 billion and during operations employ about 450 people. Construction of the Long Harbour Processing Plant is expected to generate approximately 5,750 person-years of employment.
