NioGold Mining has unveiled results of thirty new diamond drill holes of its resource definition program on the modelled open pit shell of the Marban deposit, located on its 100% owned Marban Block property in the Malartic Gold camp, Abitibi District, Quebec.

All of the above-listed intersections are located within the modelled open-pit shell, with the exception of the second intersection in drill hole MB-15-442, which could be part of a new lens. This new series contains drill holes throughout the strike length of the deposit.

NioGold President and CEO Robert Wares said: "The majority of significant drill intersections in this set of holes are at shallow depths, illustrating the potential for an open pit operation at Marban. These holes will contribute to better defining mineralized zones within the first 100 vertical metres."

With these thirty new holes totaling 7,055.3 metres, a total of 124 drill holes for a cumulative length of 37,265 meters have been released. A total of 66,000 metres of drilling have now been completed of the 70,000 metre program, which is expected to be completed by mid-August.
