QUEBEC – Montreal-based CAMBIOR has begun underground exploration of the Westwood and Mooshla deposits near two of its active gold mines. The Westwood underground program began in 2004 with the excavation of an exploration drift, starting from the 14th level of the Doyon mine at 900 metres below surface, and heading towards the east end of the Doyon property. Similarly, the Mooshla project revolves around an exploration drift started from the 13th level of the Mouska mine 740 metres below surface, heading towards the Doyon mine.
The Westwood program has uncovered a zone with economic potential corresponding to the Main zone in the Doyon mine. Hole R14070 cut a metre of 77.3 g/t Au in Zone 2. Hole R13942 cut 19.0 g/t Au and 0.16% Cu over 7.5 metres. The entire press release with more drilling results is posted at www.Cambior.com.
The Mooshla program is investigating the gold vein mineralization between the Mouska and Doyon mines. Assays from this program are returning consistently high (15.9 to 100.0 g/t Au) over drill lengths of one or two metres.
