TORONTO, Jan. 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Labrador Gold Corp. (TSX.V:LAB | OTCQX:NKOSF | FNR: 2N6) (“LabGold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce a significant increase to its diamond drilling program, at the 100% controlled Kingsway project near Gander, Newfoundland. This increase follows the Company’s success exploring along the Appleton Fault Zone over the past 18 months. The Kingsway project is located in the highly prospective central Newfoundland gold belt.

LabGold plans to double the current drilling program to 100,000 metres which includes the outstanding 23,000 metres remaining in the current 50,000 metre program. Four diamond drill rigs are currently operating at Kingsway and a fifth rig is scheduled to start following receipt of permits. Applications for 111 drill holes were submitted late last year and are expected in early March. The increased program is fully funded by the Company’s cash on hand of approximately $30 million.

Drilling will continue to test Big Vein along strike and down plunge as well as the Pristine target where early drilling is encouraging. Golden Glove, where grab samples from a quartz vein containing visible gold assayed from 2.16 to 338.08 g/t Au (see news release dated October 21, 2021), is a prime target and will be drilled following receipt of soil samples over the area. These are expected in the first quarter. Numerous other targets developing along the Appleton Fault Zone (see Figure 1) will be systematically tested along the entire 12km strike length during the increased program.

“We continue to be excited by the prospectivity of the Appleton Fault Zone at Kingsway and that was a key factor in deciding to increase the size of the drilling program. Not only do we expect to develop the targets we already have to the drilling stage, but we are also confident that we will uncover more as we continue to follow our exploration strategy proven over 18 months of work at Kingsway. With over $30 million in cash and no debt the Company is well capitalized for this planned increase,” said Roger Moss, President and CEO of Labrador Gold. “In addition to the outstanding assays from our drilling, we are still waiting for many soil and rock assays from the regional work carried out along the Appleton fault during 2021. We expect that some of these assays will enhance our current targets and perhaps hint at new ones that we can develop going forward.”

About Labrador Gold
Labrador Gold is a Canadian based mineral exploration company focused on the acquisition and exploration of prospective gold projects in Eastern Canada.

In early 2020, Labrador Gold acquired the option to earn a 100% interest in the Kingsway project in the Gander area of Newfoundland. The three licenses comprising the Kingsway project cover approximately 12km of the Appleton Fault Zone which is associated with gold occurrences in the region, including those of New Found Gold immediately to the south of Kingsway. Infrastructure in the area is excellent located just 18km from the town of Gander with road access to the project, nearby electricity and abundant local water. LabGold is drilling a projected 100,000 metres targeting high-grade epizonal gold mineralization along the Appleton Fault Zone following encouraging early results. The Company has approximately $30 million in working capital and is well funded to carry out the planned program.

The Hopedale property covers much of the Florence Lake greenstone belts that stretches over 60 km. The belt is typical of greenstone belts around the world but has been underexplored by comparison. Work to date by Labrador Gold show gold anomalies in rocks, soils and lake sediments over a 3 kilometre section of the northern portion of the Florence Lake greenstone belt in the vicinity of the known Thurber Dog gold showing where grab samples assayed up to 7.8g/t gold. In addition, anomalous gold in soil and lake sediment samples occur over approximately 40 km along the southern section of the greenstone belt (see news release dated January 25th 2018 for more details). Labrador Gold now controls approximately 40km strike length of the Florence Lake Greenstone Belt.

The Company has 153,904,110 common shares issued and outstanding and trades on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol LAB.

Labrador Gold – 2022 Outlook on the High-Grade, Kingsway Gold Project

TORONTO, Dec. 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Labrador Gold Corp. (TSX.V:LAB | OTCQX:NKOSF | FNR: 2N6) (“LabGold” or the “Company”) is pleased to review its 2021 exploration success along the Appleton Fault Zone and to give an update on plans for 2022 at its 100% controlled Kingsway project near Gander, Newfoundland. The Kingsway project is located in the highly prospective central Newfoundland gold belt.

Drilling
In early April, 2021 LabGold began a 10,000-metre diamond drilling program began at Kingsway, testing the Big Vein target where visible gold in quartz vein boulders was found in late 2020. The drilling program was increased to 50,000 metres in June following completion of two private placements.

Between the start of drilling in April and the break for the festive season in December, a total of 26,767 metres were drilled in 116 holes primarily at Big Vein. Drilling at the new “Pristine” target began in November and nine holes totalling 2,229 metres have been drilled to date. Assays have been received for 56% of samples submitted to the laboratory or approximately 15,000 metres of core.

Highlights from the drilling program include high grade intersections of 276.56 g/t Au over 0.5m in hole K-21-31 and 75.86 g/t Au over 1m in hole K-21-49 from the Big Vein zone and 44.08 g/t Au over 4.28m in hole K-21-39, and 128.51 over 1.12g/t Au in hole K-21-47 from the HTC Zone.

Regional Exploration

LabGold continued its systematic exploration along the Appleton Fault Zone during 2021, using prospecting, mapping, geophysics, soil and till sampling to great effect with two significant results.

Prospecting following up coincident structures and geochemical anomalies led to the discovery of the Golden Glove occurrence on the east side of the Appleton Fault Zone approximately 3.4km southwest of Big Vein. The occurrence consists of an outcrop of quartz vein containing visible gold that assayed from 2.99 g/t Au to 338.08 g/t Au. Soil sampling, ground magnetics and VLF-EM have been carried out in the Golden Glove area to assist in drill targeting with results expected early in the new year.

Two till samples taken approximately 700 metres northeast (down ice) of Big Vein returned 165 and 311 gold grains of which 96% and 83%, respectively were pristine. The large number of pristine grains in these samples indicates a short transport distance suggesting a source other than Big Vein closer to the sample locations. Follow up work in the area immediately up ice of these samples found quartz veins containing pyrite and arsenopyrite. Diamond drilling at this “Pristine” target began in November and assays from the first holes are pending.

Numerous other gold anomalies were uncovered along the Appleton Fault Zone that will be aggressively followed up during 2022 to define additional targets for drilling.

Financings
During the year, the Company raised $24.8 million at an average price of $0.81 in two private placements with Mr. Eric Sprott and New Found Gold. As at December 24,2021, the Company had $30.8 million in cash and a market cap of $124.5 million.

Outlook for 2022

LabGold will continue to explore the entire 12km strike length of the Appleton Fault Zone during 2022 including:

  • Continued diamond drilling at Big Vein and the “Pristine” target testing along strike and at depth.
  • Initial drilling at Golden Glove following receipt of survey results and drill permit.
  • Upgrading of gold anomalies and generation of new targets using the same techniques that produced discoveries during 2020 and 2021.

“2021 was an exciting year for us as the LabGold team built on the exploration success achieved in 2020. The drilling at Big Vein demonstrated the presence of high grade epizonal style gold mineralization at Kingsway and the discovery of visible gold at Golden Glove and pristine gold grains at the “Pristine” target reinforces the prospectivity of the Appleton Fault Zone,” said Roger Moss, President and CEO of Labrador Gold. “Given the number of gold anomalies we have uncovered along the 12km length of the Appleton Fault Zone 2022 is shaping up to be another year of discovery for LabGold. Many assays remain outstanding from 2021 which, together with our continued drilling, will result in a steady flow of news next year. With over $30 million in cash and no debt the Company is well capitalized for its planned exploration programs. I would like to express my thanks to the LabGold exploration team for their commitment to the project and to the Newfoundland government for their continued support and assistance. Finally, to our shareholders, we wouldn’t be here without you, and we look forward to sharing with you what we expect to be another year of discovery in 2022.”

TORONTO, Nov. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Labrador Gold Corp. (TSX.V:LAB | OTCQX:NKOSF | FNR: 2N6) (“LabGold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce further high-grade intercepts of near surface gold mineralization along the Appleton Fault Zone at its 100% controlled Kingsway project near Gander, Newfoundland. These holes were drilled as part of the Company’s ongoing 50,000 metre drill program. The Kingsway project is located in the highly prospective central Newfoundland gold belt.

Two holes K-21-28 and -79 both contained high-grade intervals. Hole K-21-28 intersected 76.24 g/t Au over 0.5m from 175 metres and Hole K-21-79 intersected 32.53 g/t Au over 0.8m from 162.55m, both in the HTC Zone. In addition, Hole K-21-58 intersected 7.25g/t Au over 1m from 161m in a newly defined mineralized zone in the footwall to the HTC Zone. This HTC Footwall Zone is also defined by previously released intersections of 128.51g/t Au over 1.12m in Hole K-21-47 and 11.68g/t Au over 0.91m in Hole K-21-11 as shown in Figure 1. A summary of the high-grade intersections, as well as other holes with assays recently received, are given in Table 1.

“We continue to find high-grade gold mineralization down plunge in the HTC Zone. The zone has now been tested to approximately 200 metres vertically and remains open at depth,” said Roger Moss, President and CEO of the Company. “We are also pleased to confirm a third mineralized zone in the footwall to the HTC Zone. We suspected the existence of this footwall zone for a while, but it has now shown sufficient continuity to call it a separate zone. This clearly shows the potential for multiple high-grade mineralized zones at the Big Vein target. Drilling to delineate the footwall zone and to test the down plunge extension of the HTC Zone is ongoing.”

Big Vein target

The Big Vein target is an auriferous quartz vein exposed at surface that has been traced over 400 metres along the Appleton Fault Zone. It lies within a larger northeast-southwest trending “quartz vein corridor” that stretches for over 7.5 kilometres as currently outlined, with potential for expansion along the 12km strike length of the Appleton Fault Zone in both directions. Gold mineralization observed at Big Vein includes visible gold in quartz veins, assays of samples from which range from 1.87g/t to 1,065g/t gold. The visible gold is typically hosted in annealed and vuggy gray quartz, that is locally stylolitic with vugs often containing euhedral quartz infilling features characteristic of epizonal gold deposits.

The ongoing 50,000 metre drill program has now tested Big Vein over approximately 250 metres of strike length and to vertical depths of 200 metres. Drilling has produced high grade intercepts as well as wide areas of gold mineralization associated with significant quartz veining and sulphide mineralization including arsenopyrite, pyrite and possible boulangerite noted along vein margins and as strong disseminations in the surrounding wall rocks.

QA/QC

True widths of the reported intersections have yet to be calculated. Assays are uncut. Samples of HQ and NQ split core are securely stored prior to shipping to Eastern Analytical Laboratory in Springdale, Newfoundland for assay. Eastern Analytical is an ISO/IEC17025 accredited laboratory. Samples are routinely analyzed for gold by standard 30g fire assay with ICP (inductively coupled plasma) finish with samples containing visible gold assayed by metallic screen/fire assay. The company submits blanks and certified reference standards at a rate of approximately 5% of the total samples in each batch.

TORONTO, Oct. 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Labrador Gold Corp. (TSX.V:LAB | OTCQX:NKOSF | FNR: 2N6) (“LabGold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the receipt of Exploration Approval for diamond drilling of regional Appleton Fault Zone targets at its 100% controlled Kingsway Project near Gander, Newfoundland. The Kingsway project is located within the highly prospective Gander Gold District.

LabGold has mobilized a drill rig to the first target, located approximately 800m northeast of Big Vein (see Figure 1) and the Company expects drilling to begin this week. Initial drilling will take place up ice from where a significant number of pristine gold grains in till were found earlier this year (see news release dated August 5, 2021). Follow up exploration by the LabGold team has demonstrated the potential of this area and defined drill targets will be systematically drilled over the coming weeks. This is one of several gold anomalies comprising the “string of pearls” along the Appleton Fault Zone that are in various stages of advancement.

LabGold recently increased its 20,000 metre diamond drill program to 50,000 metres targeting high-grade epizonal gold mineralization following encouraging early results. The Company has approximately $34 million in working capital and is well funded to carry out the planned program.

The Hopedale property covers much of the Hunt River and Florence Lake greenstone belts that stretch over 80 km. The belts are typical of greenstone belts around the world but have been underexplored by comparison. Initial work by Labrador Gold during 2017 show gold anomalies in soils and lake sediments over a 3 kilometre section of the northern portion of the Florence Lake greenstone belt in the vicinity of the known Thurber Dog gold showing where grab samples assayed up to 7.8g/t gold. In addition, anomalous gold in soil and lake sediment samples occur over approximately 40 kilometres along the southern section of the greenstone belt (see news release dated January 25th 2018 for more details). Labrador Gold now controls approximately 57km strike length of the Florence Lake Greenstone Belt.

Highlights

  • Rock chip assays from the new discovery include 338.08 g/t Au, 194.28 g/t, 193.69 g/t and 83.61 g/t Au confirming the presence of high-grade epizonal gold in a second location on the Kingsway property
  • This further demonstrates the significant potential for high-grade near surface gold mineralization to be found along the Appleton Fault Zone
  • Golden Glove lies on the southeast side of the Appleton Fault Zone similar to gold occurrences to the south of Kingsway

TORONTO, Sept. 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Labrador Gold Corp. (TSX.V:LAB | OTCQX:NKOSF | FNR: 2N6) (“LabGold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce high-grade assay results from samples collected at a brand new discovery, the Golden Glove, located approximately 3.5km south of Big vein, part of its 100% controlled Kingsway Project near Gander, Newfoundland. The Kingsway project is located within the highly prospective Gander Gold District.

Assays of six grab samples taken from an outcrop of mineralized quartz vein range from 2.99 to 338.08g/t Au. The three highest grade samples contained visible gold. A sample of quartz vein float approximately 60 metres to the northeast of the visible gold outcrop assayed 2.16g/t Au. Highlights of the results are given below.

Abbreviations: py pyrite, apy arsenopyrite, cpy chalcopyrite *Note that grab samples are select samples and are not necessarily representative of gold mineralization found on the property.

The Golden Glove discovery is located adjacent to the Appleton Fault Zone approximately 3.5km southwest of Big Vein. Unlike Big Vein, it is located on the southeast side of the Appleton Fault Zone, similar to the Keats, Golden Joint and Lotto occurrences on New Found Gold’s Queensway property immediately to the south.

“The discovery of high-grade gold mineralization at Golden Glove is the result of our systematic approach to exploration at Kingsway. Golden Glove is just one of six prospective gold targets, excluding Big Vein, that we have generated and are currently exploring along the Appleton Fault,” said Roger Moss, President and CEO of Labrador Gold. “We continue to advance these targets and generate new ones along the entire 12km length of the Appleton Fault covered by the Kingsway Project. This is the second new discovery made by LabGold on the Kingsway project following the discovery of Big Vein late last year. We anticipate making further discoveries as we continue to explore what appears to be a very productive fault zone.”

TORONTO, Sept. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Labrador Gold Corp. (TSX.V:LAB | OTCQX:NKOSF | FNR: 2N6) (“LabGold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce further high-grade intercepts of near surface gold mineralization along the Appleton Fault Zone at its 100% controlled Kingsway project near Gander, Newfoundland. These holes were drilled as part of the Company’s 50,000 metre drill program. The Kingsway project is located in the highly prospective central Newfoundland gold belt.

Three holes K-21-47, -48, and -49 all contained intervals grading more than 12g/t Au. Hole K-21-47 intersected 128.51 g/t Au over 1.12m from 168 metres in the HTC Zone which represents a “metal factor” (grade x width) of 143.9 g/t Au x m*. Hole K-21-48 intersected 35.7 g/t Au over 1.55m from 12.22m and hole K-21-49 intersected 9.6g/t Au over 10m from 51m, including 76.86g/t Au over 1m. Both intersections in holes K-21-48 and -49 are in the Big Vein Zone. A summary of the high-grade intersections, as well as other holes with assays recently received, are given in Table 1 below. *The width used to calculate metal factor is downhole width as there is insufficient information to calculate true width.

“We continue to be encouraged by the high-grade gold mineralization intersected in the HTC Zone. The intersection in hole K-21-47 is the deepest of the +100 g/t Au x m intervals drilled to date,” said Roger Moss, President and CEO of the Company. “The two high-grade intercepts of 35.7g/t and 75.86g/t Au in the near surface Big Vein Zone are also significant, as they are approximately 150 metres apart and demonstrate that the high grades persist along strike to the southwest. Drilling continues to test this trend to the southwest.”

Big Vein target

The Big Vein target is an auriferous quartz vein exposed at surface that has been traced over 400 metres at surface along the Appleton Fault Zone. It lies within a larger northeast-southwest trending “quartz vein corridor” that stretches for over 7.5 kilometres as currently outlined, with potential for expansion along the 12km strike length of the Appleton Fault Zone in both directions. Gold mineralization observed at Big Vein includes visible gold in quartz veins, assays of samples from which range from 1.87g/t to 1,065g/t gold. The visible gold is typically hosted in annealed and vuggy gray quartz, that is locally stylolitic with vugs often containing euhedral quartz infilling features characteristic of epizonal gold deposits.

The ongoing 50,000 metre drill program has tested Big Vein over approximately 200 metres of strike length of the 400m surface exposure and to vertical depths of 175 metres. Drilling has produced visible gold in 11 drill holes giving high grade intercepts as well as wide areas of gold mineralization associated with significant quartz veining and sulphide mineralization including arsenopyrite, pyrite and possible boulangerite noted along vein margins and as strong disseminations in the surrounding wall rocks.

Matthieu Lapointe has resigned as Vice President Exploration. We thank Matt for his guidance over the past year during which the Company made the significant high-grade epizonal gold discovery at Big Vein. We wish him all the best in his future endeavours.

QA/QC

True widths of the reported intersections have yet to be calculated. Assays are uncut. Samples of HQ split core are securely stored prior to shipping to Eastern Analytical Laboratory in Springdale, Newfoundland for assay. Eastern Analytical is an ISO/IEC17025 accredited laboratory. Samples are routinely analyzed for gold by standard 30g fire assay with ICP (inductively coupled plasma) finish with samples containing visible gold assayed by metallic screen/fire assay.

The three licenses comprising the Kingsway project cover approximately 16km of the Appleton fault zone which is associated with gold occurrences in the region, including the New Found Gold discovery. Infrastructure in the area is excellent located just 18km from the town of Gander with road access to the project, nearby electricity and abundant local water. LabGold recently increased its 20,000 metre diamond drill program to 50,000 metres targeting high-grade epizonal gold mineralization following encouraging early results. The Company has approximately $35 million in working capital and is well funded to carry out the planned program.

The Hopedale property covers much of the Hunt River and Florence Lake greenstone belts that stretch over 80 km. The belts are typical of greenstone belts around the world but have been underexplored by comparison. Initial work by Labrador Gold during 2017 show gold anomalies in soils and lake sediments over a 3 kilometre section of the northern portion of the Florence Lake greenstone belt in the vicinity of the known Thurber Dog gold showing where grab samples assayed up to 7.8 g/t gold. In addition, anomalous gold in soil and lake sediment samples occur over approximately 40 kilometres along the southern section of the greenstone belt (see news release dated January 25 th 2018 for more details). Labrador Gold now controls approximately 57km strike length of the Florence Lake Greenstone Belt.

The Company has 151,472,206 common shares issued and outstanding and trades on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol LAB.

Labrador Gold – Kingsway Gold Project, String of Golden Pearls

Maurice Jackson:

Joining us for a conversation is Roger Moss, the CEO of Labrador Gold (TSX.V: LAB | OTCQX: INOKF). It’s a pleasure to be speaking with you sir, as you have some very encouraging news coming from the Kingsway Gold Project, this time in the form of pristine gold grains. Before we begin, Dr. Moss, who is Labrador Gold, and what is the opportunity the company presents to shareholders?

Dr. Roger Moss:

Labrador Gold is a junior mining company based in Canada, and we’re currently exploring in Newfoundland on our flagship Kingsway Gold Project. We’ve done quite a bit of work on there over the last year, and this Spring we embarked on a 50,000-meter drill program.  We made a discovery late last year of visible gold in quartz grain boulders. And we’ve been drilling for a few months with some nice high-grade hits. We are quite excited about the potential before us, and our recent press releases seem to indicate that we may be onto something.  And today’s news adds even more to the story.

Maurice Jackson:

Dr. Moss take us to the Kingsway Gold Project, which is along a structure highway known for gold-bearing fluids, please acquaint us with the primary structures.

Dr. Roger Moss:

One of the things that interested me about Kingsway when I first heard about it and we moved to acquire it, was the fact that we had these major crustal structures running through it. And we know that the kinds of gold deposits that we’re looking at here, orogenic and epigenetic gold deposits, they are associated with these major crustal structures. If you have them, it’s great, you can find gold along them. And we are fortunate enough to have two, the Appleton Fault Zone and Dog Bay Line. Most of our work to date has been along the Appleton Fault Zone, and it’s almost a no brainer because down to the south of us where New Found Gold are exploring, they’ve been having incredible success exploring along the Appleton Fault Zone with their great intersections at Keats and Lotto, and most recently at the Golden Joint, so they have three occurrences down there along the Appleton Fault Zone, and ours is just starting, and our Big Vein target is also located along the Appleton Fault Zone. It seems to be a pretty prospective structure that’s running through the property.

Maurice Jackson:

Speaking of the Big Vein in the Appleton Fault Zone, at the conclusion of our last interview, you stated that, “the Big Vein may be the first of many occurrences and that the ideal situation is finding a string of pearls along the Appleton Fault Zone.” Let’s see if the ideal has the potential to come to fruition. Let’s visit the Appleton Fault Zone as earlier today, Labrador Gold announced till results of pristine gold grains. Dr. Moss, what can you share with us?

Dr. Roger Moss:

Labrador recently conducted a pretty big till sampling survey over the lowermost, southernmost two licenses of the Kingsway Project. And I think there was 57 till samples in total, and we got some nice results and the key here, and I think you said it twice, I’m going to say it again, is pristine. Pristine gold grains and that means that these grains haven’t traveled very far from their source, and that’s what we see here in these results.

Dr. Roger Moss:

If I may just digress a little bit so that I can explain why these pristine grains are so important. We’re looking at rocks and grains that have been dumped out of glaciers as they melt and recede, so when the glaciers move across the rock, they scrape and scour the bedrock and they entrain all the material that they’re scouring and they carry it with them, and when they recede and melt, they start dropping that material all the way back to the source, so the more pristine the gold grains are, the closer to the source they would have been because you can’t transport these very flaky gold grains very far without completely modifying their shape.

Dr. Roger Moss:

And so, in terms of gold grain morphology for till sampling, we talk about pristine, closest to the source. Modified, further away, maybe around half a kilometer or more, and then reshaped where the gold grains are totally bent onto themselves and more rounded, and that’s furthest away from the source and probably up to over a kilometer away from the source. So, the pristine grains that we have, they indicate that those grains are very close to the source of mineralization that they came from.

Maurice Jackson:

Identifying the source, mode of transportation, along with pristine gold is a huge success. Does today’s release bode well on the ideal of having a string of pearls along the Appleton Fault Zone?

Dr. Roger Moss:

Oh, absolutely! To give you an example, and this is where it gets really exciting because we had a till sample that was taken right next to Big Vein, and it had something like 165 grains of gold in total and something like 80% of them were pristine. That’s great. So, it hadn’t come very far from the source, but we know that Big Vein has visible gold in there. We found a big boulder last year of quartz vein with visible gold in it, so it’s not a big jump to say that, “Well yeah, sure. That till sample came from Big Vein.” It seems to be a reasonable idea, but the results that we announced today, there are two samples, another one with 165 grains of gold, somewhere just over 90% of them pristine, very close to the source and the other one, 311 grains of gold, just over 80% pristine.

Dr. Roger Moss:

311 grains of gold is almost double the number of grains of gold that we found in the sample next to Big Vein and that occurs 700 to 800 meters northeast of Big Vein, so that means that the gold grains in those samples did not come from Big Vein. They came from somewhere much closer to the sample locations, so this goes back to my pearls on a string story, and we’re just adding pearls to the string with these till samples. It’s very exciting. It means that Big Vein is likely not the only occurrence that we’re going to be drilling, and there’s definitely more to be found along this Appleton Fault Zone.

Maurice Jackson:

Speaking of extending the string, Labrador Gold has embarked on a 50,000-meter drill program this spring. What work is currently being conducted on-site, and do you have any updates on when we may expect more assays?

Dr. Roger Moss:

Oh, that’s what everybody asks, of course. You got to ask it at some point and the answer is always the same. The labs are backed up, we’re getting results, but they’re much slower, and it seems like as every week goes by the turnaround time gets longer. One of our guys was at the lab yesterday and he came back, and he said, “Roger, you won’t believe the number of samples that are in that lab waiting to be assayed.” He said, “There are bags and bags and bags, just waiting to be assayed.”

Dr. Roger Moss:

I said, “Man, you should have taken a photograph, and that could be my answer when I get asked that question. ‘Look, folks this is what it’s like, the labs are jampacked”. We are getting results in, we will be putting out more results from the drilling. It’s going well, and yeah, I know patience is not the biggest trait of some investors, but you know what? I think that we’re going to be there. When these results come in, it’s going to be good, and I think we’ve got a long way to go yet, so yeah, I think patience is definitely required here.

Maurice Jackson:

Leaving the Kingsway Gold Project, let’s get into some numbers. Sir, please provide the capital structure for Labrador Gold.

Dr. Roger Moss:

Right now, we have around 150 million shares outstanding, and probably another 50 million warrants and options, so just over 200 million are fully diluted. We have 35 million in the bank. We don’t have any debt. So yeah, I think we’re in a pretty good position to keep on with this exploration that we’re doing and to keep going.

Maurice Jackson:

In closing, Dr. Moss, what would you like to convey to shareholders?

Dr. Roger Moss:

Well, earlier in the season when we were drilling, and it can be frustrating sometimes when we’re not hitting as often as we would like or we don’t see the results that we would like, but of course not every hole is going to hit, but I just tell myself, “Don’t stop believing,” and that’s the name of the game here. You have to believe as a geologist in this industry, you got to believe that you’re going to find the deposit that you’re looking for. And I think all indications right now are that we’re on the right track, and it’s a matter of time before we see something significant.

Maurice Jackson:

Dr. Moss for readers that wants to get more information about Labrador Gold, please share the contact details.

Yeah, you can email info@labradorgold.com, www.labradorgold.com is our web address. And I would recommend people look at our Twitter feed @LabGoldCorp. We post a lot of information on Twitter. YouTube is another channel, our YouTube channel, lots of videos there, so there’s a lot of information out there besides what’s on the website, but yeah, Twitter and YouTube both are channels that we use fairly extensively.

Maurice Jackson:
