QUEBEC – Assays from the Eleanore South joint venture continue to include high grade gold intersections. The JV consists of the operator and 26.6% owner Azimut Exploration, Eastmain Resources (36.7%) and Goldcorp (36.7%). The property is adjacent to Goldcorp’s Eleonore gold project in the James Bay region.

Highlights of recent drilling include the following:

  • Hole ES18-133: 14.7 g/t gold over 6.2 metres, including 80.4 g/t over 1.0 metre;
  • Hole ES18-121A: 1.85 g/t gold over 8.7 metres, including 3.83 g/t over 3.9 metres;
  • Hole ES18-126: 2.08 g/t gold over 8.0 metres, including 8.22 g/t over 1.5 metre; and
  • Hole ES18-129: 12.7 g/t gold over 1.0 metre and 2.09 g/t Au over 7.5 metres.

Azimut says drilling continues to identify shallow, intrusion hosted gold mineralization over a corridor 2 km long and 600 to 700 metres wide. There are two main trends – Moni and Contact – the westward extensions of which are being tested.
