Palisades Announces New Found’s High-Grade Extension at Keats West
VANCOUVER, BC, March 21, 2023 – Palisades Goldcorp Ltd. (TSXV: PALI) (“Palisades” or the “Company“) today announced that New Found Gold Corp. (“New Found“), a significant equity investee of Palisades within the meaning of applicable Canadian securities legislation, has released results from 11 diamond drill holes completed as part of a drill program on New Found’s Keats West zone forming part of New Found’s 100%-owned Queensway project in Newfoundland and Labrador.
As announced by New Found, the Keats West zone is a low-angle thrust fault located on the west side of the highly prospective Appleton Fault Zone. The high-grade interval reported in New Found’s news release occurs just 65m from surface due to late faulting that has uplifted a portion of the Keats West structure and relocated it closer to surface. New Found has reported that step-out and infill drilling are ongoing at the Keats West zone.
For further details, including drilling highlights and drillhole details of the Keats West zone, and information of a technical nature with respect thereto, please see New Found’s news release dated March 21, 2023, accessible on New Found’s website at https://newfoundgold.ca/news/ and under New Found’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
