Drills turning at Nighthawk's Colomac

Nighthawk Gold Corp. July 28 reported the start of a 3,000-meter drill program at its Colomac gold deposit in the Northwest Territories. The program will follow up on the success of Nighthawk's 2014 drilling at Zone 1.5, where hole C14-06 intersected 52.50 meters of 7.78 grams per metric ton gold. "The significant results we encountered from Zone 1.5 during our 2014 drill program prove the northern portion of the Colomac sill merits further exploration," said Nighthawk President and CEO David Wiley. Zone 1.0, another target in the northern portion of Colomac that is believed to host mineralization similar to Zone 1.5 also is planned to be drilled this year.
