Merrex Gold (TSXV:MXI)Merrex released initial drill results from reverse-circulation drilling at its Siribaya gold project in Mali this week. The company's release states that the results "confirm the presence of multiple zones of gold mineralization over a wide area with several lenses related to alteration zones," and adds that the deposit area is open in all directions and at depth. Significant assays include 40 meters of 2.52 g/t gold, including 9 meters of 8.83 g/t gold, and 38 meters of 2.52 g/t gold, including 10 meters of 5.7 g/t gold. Avnel Gold Mining (TSX:AVK) Drilling at Avnel's Kalana Main project in Mali has extended Vein 1, the most significant vein at the project. Highlights include 22.5 g/t gold over 4 meters, including 82 g/t gold over 1 meter. "The confirmation of the up-dip extension of Vein 1 is highly encouraging as it is expected to support the conversion of a significant portion of the Inferred Resource to the measured and indicated categories," the company's release states. Balmoral Resources (TSX:BAR,OTCQX:BALMF) Definitely a favorite in the junior space, Balmoral has gotten plenty of attention for its nickel discovery and high-grade gold results at its properties in Quebec. Most recently, Balmoral released the final results from drilling at the Bug Lake trend at its Martiniere project. Highlights include an intercept of 4.16 g/t gold over 38.19 meters, including 25.05 g/t gold over 5.1 meters, from the Lower Bug Lake zone. "Exploration activities have resumed and we look forward to more strong results as we continue to delineate the opportunities at Martiniere and Grasset, and continue our evaluation of our extensive holdings in the area," said Balmoral CEO Darin Wagner in Wednesday's release. Carlisle Goldfields (TSX:CGJ) Carlisle reported results from its "Special Exploration" drill program, which is focused outside the feasibility study area of its Lynn Lake joint venture ground. The company is jointly funding its $4-million exploration program with its joint venture partner AuRico Gold (TSX:AUQ). Highlighted intercepts include 1.63 g/t gold over 10.6 meters and 5.63 g/t gold over 5.6 meters.
Canada Strategic Metals (TSXV:CJC)Canada Strategic Metals, together with Matamec Explorations (TSXV:MAT), reported that the latest results from its March 2015 drill program confirm the extension of the 25 zone at the Sakami gold property in Northern Quebec. Intercepts include 0.96 g/t gold over 24 meters, including 10.65 g/t gold over 0.85 meters, 3.32 g/t gold over 2.8 meters and 0.53 g/t gold over 52.5 meters. The upshot Certainly, there's been plenty going on in the junior gold space this week, and it might be a lot for investors to take in. Tools such as Corebox might be worth checking out to help interpret some of those results, and it's always worth taking a look at what industry watchers like Brent Cook, John Kaiser and Gwen Preston have to say about what to look for in junior mining companies.
