QUEBEC — Wesdome Gold Mines of Val d’Or, QC, has received bonanza-grade assays from its 100%-owned Dubuisson discovery located 3 km east of its Kiena mine and 3 km east of Agnico-Eagle’s Goldex mine. The best assay was 114.99 g/t Au over a core length of 1.0 metres from Hole S552.

 

The average assay from 10.3 metres of Hole S552 was 26.10 g/t Au.

 

So far the company has identified multiple zones of gold mineralization with widespread drilling along a strike length of at least 500 metres. Gold is hosted by fractured, albitized diorite and/or feldspar porphyry bodies within a broad, deformed ultramafic (komatiite) sequence. Mineralization consists of quartz-albite-tourmaline-pyrite veinlet stockworks commonly carrying free gold. The host rock displays strong Sigma-style alteration containing disseminated pyrite.

 

The Dubuisson discovery is described at length on the company’s website, www.Wesdome.com.
