COPPER-ZINC: Scott Lake gives up more high grades for Yorbeau

QUEBEC – Yorbeau Resources of Montreal continues to drill at the Scott Lake 20 km west of Chibougamau and reports more higher grade massive sulphide mineralization.

Hole SC-82W returned 0.7% Cu and 12.1% Zn over 5.0 metres about 45 metres from a similar intersection drilled in October 2015. The intersection included a 0.6-metre section that graded 3.6% Cu and 22.2% Zn. The hole tested the potential up-dip extension of the CFO lens. The mineralization is less than 600 metres below surface.

Another mineralized interval in hole SC-31W2 along the Gap lens returned 1.0% Cu and 1.4% Zn over 31.0 metres including 1.8% Cu and 48.7 g/t Ag over 6.4 metres. The hole also returned a, 8-metre length of 1.0% Cu, 1.7% Zn and 32.3 g/t Ag.

The Scott Lake property is known to host a number of massive sulphide lenses. Together they total 5.45 million inferred tonnes averaging 1.2% Cu, 4.6% Zn, 0.2 g/t Au, and 34.0 g/t Ag as estimated in 2011.
