QUEBEC – Montreal’s Kintavar Exploration has discovered a new copper-silver zone north of the Sherlock zone at its Mitchi property 100 km north of the town of Mont-Laurier. The company believes the results validate the stratiform copper model in the province.

Two holes in particular were notable. Drill hole MS-17-03 returned 120 metres grading 0.34% copper and 2.90 g/t silver including 30 metres at 0.61% Cu and 3.76 g/t Ag. Hole MS17-04 returned 131 metres grading 0.31% Cu and 2.85 g/t Ag including 29.3 metres at 0.52% Cu and 3.53 g/t Ag.

Kintavar’s drilling intersected a favourable sedimentary unit over an area 200 x 200 metres and to a vertical depth of 175 metres. The unit remains open to the east, west and at depth. Copper mineralization in the core ranged from trace to 5% in the form of bornite and chalcopyrite with traces of chalcocite. Pyrite has been observed only locally with less than trace and rarely near 1%.
