About
New Found Gold Corp.

New Found is advancing its 100% owned high-grade 1,500km2 Queensway gold project, located on the Trans-Canada highway 15km west of Gander, Newfoundland. A 200,000m drill campaign is underway utilizing eight drills, focused on a 7.8km corridor along the Appleton fault and a 12.4km km corridor along the JBP fault. On the Appleton fault, following up on the initial discovery hole that returned 19m of 92.9 g/t Au at the Keats Zone, a wide zone of high-grade gold mineralization has now been drill-defined starting at bedrock surface and extending 285m down plunge and open, with step-out drilling continuing.  At the Lotto Zone 2km north of Keats, from the initial discovery hole of 41.2 g/t Au over 4.75m and 25.4 g/t Au over 5.15m, follow up drilling is indicating continuity to depth with recent deeper results including 225g/t Au over 2.5m.

Multiple other high-grade targets are now being pursued over 7.8km along the Appleton Fault Zone and 12.4km along the JBP Fault Zone. Work is also underway to define additional drill targets on +100km of prospective strike along the Appleton and JBP fault structures on the southern portion of the Queensway property. With approximately $79 million in working capital New Found is well funded to pursue its exploration programs.
