Doris BTD drilling continues to return high grade gold results; Outline of 2019 exploration strategy
22 January 2019
TMAC Resources Inc. is pleased to provide the last installment of 2018 exploration drilling results from the Doris Below the Dyke (Doris BTD) at Hope Bay. The drilling at Doris has continued to upgrade confidence in and expand upon the high grade BTD Extension zone and supports our 2019 strategy for continued reserve and resource expansion. Today’s drill results represent the last 28 of 95 drillholes (13,327 metrestotal) completed during the 2018 Doris BTD drilling program. Drilling in 2018 has defined the BTD extension zone over a more than 300 metre strike length with mineralization remaining open to the north. A 60,000 metre drill program is planned for the Hope Bay belt in 2019, which is materially greater than the 34,000 metre program in 2018. TMAC has set ambitious targets to grow reserves and resources at Doris, especially at Doris BTD, supported by extension of the Doris BTD ramp development to the north to provide access to a further 100 metres of strike length. As well, drilling at Madrid North targeted to advance these deposits towards development and production, include a Suluk winter program that is underway and nearsurface drilling program at Naartok East. TMAC will be re-initiating its Boston exploration program this summer and will follow with a defined winter program. TMAC also plans to conduct a regional exploration program that is focused on established targets which are in proximity to existing and planned infrastructure.
