QUEBEC – Results from the first nine holes of a 14-hole diamond drilling program at the Eleonore South joint venture were long and strong – 4.88 g/t gold over 45.0 metres and 13.0 g/t over 10.5 metres, including 37.9 g/t over 3.0 metres in Hole ES17-64.
Map of the Eleonore South joint venture.
The project, located adjacent to Goldcorp’s Eleonore mine, is a joint venture of Eastmain Resources (36.7% and the operator), Azimut Exploration (26.6%), and a subsidiary of Goldcorp (36.7%).
The recent drill program tested a 2-km area within a 4-km by 500-metres prospective corridor. The Moni and Trench targets within a tonalite intrusion and the tonalite contacts with metasediments further to the east were tested. Preliminary interpretations of the large gold-bearing system is as a late stage hydrothermal-magmatic phase directly related to the tonalitic intrusion.
