The first drill hole completed by Makena Resources Inc. as part of a diamond drill program on its 50%-owned Clone gold property in northwestern British Columbia returned a highlight of 6.43 meters grading 17.83 g/t of gold from a depth of 46.33 meters.
The drill hole was designed to test the depth potential of a trenching result from 1995 that returned 9 meters at 11.65 g/t of gold and 0.18% cobalt, according to the company's Dec. 20 statement. Assays for a further six drill holes are pending.
The drill program started in September.
Teuton Resources Corp., which has a 25% stake in the Clone project, is Makena's partner for the drill program. Silver Grail Resources Ltd. holds the remaining project interest.
