QUEBEC — Conway Resources of Quebec City is bulk sampling the Conway and Paquin gold veins near Belleterre and the results are excellent. Preliminary results from check samples averaged 31.15 g/t Au for the Conway vein and 19.88 g/t Au for the Paquin vein.
Channel sampling was carried out on the Conway vein over a strike length of 200 metres. A bulk sample of 525.71 kg was collected, and a check sample of 3.22 kg was taken from each of seven containers for analysis. On the Paquin vein, a bulk sample of 436.45 kg was collected over a strike length of 70 metres using the same procedure. The six check samples for the Paquin vein were 2.64 kg in size. Samples were only taken for these two veins.
The Conway Paquin property lies in the western extension of the Belleterre gold mine concession and less than 500 metres from the former mine, which produced 800,000 oz of gold (2.18 million tonnes at an average grade of 10.73 g/t Au) from 1936 to 1959. The mineralization at the Conway Paquin property is similar to that of the former Belleterre mine, occurring in quartz veins with visible gold and some sulphides. The Conway and Paquin veins average 70 cm and 50 cm in width respectively, and dip steeply to the south.
