QUEBEC – Yorbeau Resources of Montreal says the third hole in a gap zone, a 67-metre step-out from the discovery hole, at Scott Lake confirms the discovery of a new massive sulphide lens outside the current resource. The find is on a new horizon between the West and deeper CFO lenses.

Hole SC-48E returned 32.2 metres grading 0.3% Cu and 3.0% Zn, including a 13.5-metres section of 0.4% Cu and 3.5% Cu. Farther down the hole, a 7.5-metre section assayed 0.2% Cu and 4.7% Zn. Yorbeau is planning follow-up drilling on the new discovery to outline its shape and true width.

The Scott Lake property, 100% owned by Yorbeau, hosts a number of polymetallic massive sulphide lenses. These represent combined inferred resources of 5.45 million tonnes grading 1.2% Cu, 4.6% Zn, 0.2 g/t Au and 34 g/t Ag.
