August 23, 2022 | By Monica Ferguson

The 1911 Gold Corporation has commenced exploration drilling on its 100 per cent owned Rice Lake gold property in Manitoba.

Initial drilling will test priority targets at the historical Central Manitoba Mine which produced approximately 160,000 ounces of gold at a grade of 12.6 g/t gold, mostly from within 150 metres of surface

Numerous near-mine drill targets, as well as potential deep extensions, identified at Central Manitoba in areas with no record of previous drilling, based on new mapping and compiled unpublished historical data


1911 Gold laid out 5,000 metres of exploration drilling at the Rice Lake property, including first pass drilling on new targets at the Central Manitoba and Palomar projects, and follow-up drilling at the Wallace project.

“Following a thorough compilation of historical data that resided outside the public domain for decades, Central Manitoba has been upgraded to a very compelling exploration target”, said Scott Anderson, vice-president, Exploration. “This historical mine was the second-largest producer in the Rice Lake district, with among the highest head grades.”
