Gowest Gold: Four Rig Winter Drill Program Is Underway

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 26, 2011) - Gowest Amalgamated Resources Ltd. ("Gowest" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:GWA)(OTCBB:GWSAF) is pleased to announce that its 2011 winter drilling program is underway at the Frankfield gold project in Timmins, Ontario.

18,000 metres of drilling is planned for the winter program and will include;

  • Deep drilling down to a depth of more than 1000m to define areas for resource expansion and to explore an apparent easterly plunge to the deposit which has demonstrated multiple parallel gold bearing structures at a depth of 750m. 
  • Drilling the high priority southern magnetic gold target, where a shallow drill will explore this alteration zone roughly 1km from the Frankfield East Deposit.
