STELMINE COMPLETES 13 DRILL HOLES ON THE MERIDIAN GOLD ZONE IN MERCATOR
Stelmine Canada Ltd. has completed its maiden 2,000-metre diamond drilling campaign on its Mercator property. The 13 drill holes were completed in a 1.8-kilometre-by-400-metre area covering several gold-bearing zones detected at the surface. The property is located in the Caniapiscau mining district, 160 km west of Fermont, northeastern Quebec.
Logging of core material shows similar rock type and sulphide mineralization observed and sampled at the surface to a depth of 250 m. Mineralization consists of pyrrhotite, pyrite, lollingite/arsenopyrite within granulitic mafic rocks injected/interlayered with metasediments.
Isabelle Proux, president and chief executive officer of Stelmine, declares: "We are excited by the fact that most of the core material displays similar rock types yielding gold values at the surface. We are eagerly awaiting the assay results for the entire 2,000 m of core."
Since 2020, the Meridian gold zone underwent extensive exploration involving high-resolution heliborne magnetic and ground-based IP/resistivity surveys accompanied by comprehensive channel sampling of mineralized zones. The drill holes location was largely based on the results of this work program yielding channel sample intervals assays such as 2.07 g/t Au over 27.50 m; 2.16 g/t Au over 16.0 m; and 2.13 g/t Au over 12.50 m (see news release of July 27, 2022).
