Red Pine Touts New High-Grade Structure at Wawa Gold Project

Red Pine Exploration's touting more positive drill results from its Wawa Gold Project.

The Toronto-based exploration company says it has identified a new high-grade structure, the Cooper Structure, one kilometre east of the northernmost extension of the Surluga Deposit and 2.8 kilometres northeast of the Minto Mine South Deposit.

While results from recent channel sampling returned 27 grams per tonne gold over 0.31 metres true width, Red Pine says drilling conducted in the 1980s intersected 10.9 grams per tonne over 4.39 metres down dip from the channel sample, indicating there could be "significant" gold mineralization.

Red Pine notes the historic Cooper Mine had milled over 4400 tonnes of ore at an average grade of 11.4 grams per tonne before it ended production in 1938.
