Update about Lynn Lake Project
On December 16, 2021, Alamos Gold Inc. reported new results from its ongoing exploration program on the Lynn Lake Project in Manitoba, Canada.
The company reported that all 17 holes drilled to date in this new target have intersected gold mineralization.
The President and Chief Executive Officer, John A. McCluskey said that since completing the Feasibility Study on the Gordon and MacLellan deposits in 2017, Mineral Reserves have increased 27% to 2.1 million ounces of gold. AGI’s ongoing exploration success demonstrates the potential for further Mineral Reserve and Resource growth at both deposits as well as regionally across the prospective and underexplored Lynn Lake greenstone belt.
The gold price keeps changing and that might be the reason behind its after-hours gains on Friday because we have no other reason for its Friday performance.
