The Kiimala Trend project

The Kiimala Trend project is Northgold’s secondary and earlier-stage project, which is held by the Company’s wholly-owned Finnish subsidiary, Lakeuden Malmi Oy. This prospective and under-explored trend is located in the middle of the Raahe-Haapajärvi Trend within the broader Middle Ostrobothnia Gold Belt of Central Finland.

Kiimala Trend Mineral resources

The Kiimala Trend project is subject to a 1% net smelter royalty (NSR) payable to the project vendor and major shareholder, Magnus Minerals Oy.

Northgold’s Kiimala Trend project holds numerous drilled and un-drilled gold targets that require follow up. The project includes seven granted exploration permits, two which are drill-ready and four of which are subjects ongoing public correspondence, two applications, and one reservation.. The project’s largest deposit, Ängesneva, hosts compliant resources of 147 koz Au.

The Kimala Trend exploration permit and application areas cover a combined 97 km2, including more than 15km along the trend. The project includes multiple near-surface deposits and both drilled and undrilled prospects, which include:

Ängesneva deposit
Kiimala Trend project’s largest deposit is A, for which Belvedere Resources released an initial resource estimate in 2010 of 3.85 Mt @ 1.19g/t Au for 147,300oz. Additional resource potential exists at depth and in parallel structures with associated gold mineralization to the northwest. Historic drill intercepts include:

  • 122.4m @ 1.52 g/t Au
  • 80m @ 1.85 g/t Au
  • 15.1m @ 5.26 g/t Au and 0.3% Cu

Vesiperä deposit
Based on limited drilling (35 holes), GTK estimates a non-compliant/historic resource of 290 kt grading 2.5g/t for 23,600 oz. Historic drill intercepts include:

  • 5m at 9.4g/t Au
  • 4.5m at 2.2g/t Au

Kiimala prospect
Includes a drill intercept of 2.27g/t over 17.25m from 42.6m that requires follow up.
