MacDonald Mines Provides Update on Exploration Program at Holdsworth

Wawa-Holdsworth Project

TORONTO, ONTARIO – (Marketwired) – MacDonald Mines Exploration Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:BMK) (“MacDonald Mines”, or the “Company”) has begun an exploration program at its Wawa-Holdsworth Gold Project near Wawa, Ontario.

Havenan Brothers completed 62 kilometres of line cutting at the Wawa-Holdsworth Project in order to conduct magnetic and electromagnetic surveys on the property. The Company intends to utilize this data to map, model and highlight prospective drill targets.

The Wawa-Holdsworth Project is comprised of 18 contiguous patented mining claims covering approximately 285 hectares, located 20 kilometres northeast of Wawa, Ontario.

Three gold targets have been identified on the property:

  • Lode Gold in traditional quartz veins, known as the “The Soocana Vein”,
  • an oxidized cap at surface developed over a massive pyrite zone (Algoma Iron Formation) known as the “The Oxide Sands”, and
  • the precursor to the Oxide Sands – a massive pyrite zone (Algoma Iron Formation) at depths, known as “The Massive Sulphide”.

The Company believes that there is potential to find additional high-grade gold mineralization at the Wawa-Holdsworth Project.
