QUEBEC – Toronto-based Enforcer Gold Corp. has completed this year’s diamond drilling at its Montalembert gold project equidistant between Matagami and Chibougamau. Gold mineralization above 0.5 g/t was present in 27 of the 45 holes in the program.

Visible gold was seen in five holes from the No.2 vein. These are the highlights:

  • Hole MDD170006: 197.13 g/t gold over 1.2 metre including 782 g/t over 0.30 metre;
  • Hole MDD170022: 13.70 g/t gold over 0.5 metre and 17.50 g/t over 1.0 metre;
  • Hole MDD170028: 4.71 g/t gold over 0.85 metre;
  • Hole MDD170032: 17.5 g/t gold over 0.37 metre; and
  • Hole MDD170043: 8.51 g/t gold over 1.0 metre.

True bonanza grades were cut from 133 sawn channels, each cut over 1.0 metre, collected from the Galena, No.2 and No.3 veins. Intersections of 3,310.00 g/t gold, 105.00 g/t, 104.68 g/t, and 13.50 g/t.

Enforcer  says the No.2 vein is the more continuous and productive of the two main veins. The Galena vein attracts its share of attention because it outcrops at the surface. A 1973 surface bulk sample of the Galena vein returned 12.69 g/t gold over a 108.2-metre strike length with an average 0.65 metre width to 0.6 metre deep.
