Will Robinson, VP of Exploration at West Red Lake Gold Mines (TSX.V:WRLG – OTCQB:WRLGF), joins us to summarize the 2023 drill program takeaways at the Rowan Project, as well as exploration work done at the Madsen Gold Project and Mine (acquired from Pure Gold Mining last year).  


At the Rowan Project the Company completed 62 drill holes over 21,000 meters last year, increasing the confidence in the gold resources and the data density, with the main focus being in the East Zone.   In 2024 the plan is to do more stepout and discovery drilling, and balance out the work in both the West Zone and East Zone expansion.  The Rowan Project provides optionality in a development scenario in tandem with the restart of mining at the Madsen Gold Mine.


At Madsen, we discussed the recent high-grade gold intercepts and ongoing drilling at the new area of focus at the North Austin Zone and Austin Zone.   We also review the potential at depth at Madsen with both the South Austin Zone, and then some of the prior work at the 8-Zone, underneath the McVeigh Zone.  Underground drilling will allow the exploration team to follow up on these areas with more accuracy, and more efficient holes, than trying to drill from surface as prior operators had done.  There will be a lot of exploration work and metallurgical testing completed at the Madsen Gold Project this year, further derisking and delineating the project, to optimize a potential mine restart next year.
