QUEBEC – Radisson Mining Resources of Rouyn-Noranda, QC, is moving forward at its O’Brien-Kewagama gold project with the announcement that it is ready to start an underground exploration program.

The project is located in the Malartic-Cadillac portion of the Abitibi Gold Belt. From 1933 to 1956, the O’Brien mine produced 590,000 oz of gold. Grades of 15.4 g/t Au made it the highest grade gold producer in the camp. Radisson has identified additional resources at the mine of 218,540 oz in the indicated category (245,000 tonnes at 19.2 g/t) and the inferred category (165,000 tonnes at 12.7 g/t).

 Radisson will excavate a 4.5 x 5.0-metre, 4,600-metre long decline to access several underground levels. It will then take a bulk sample from Zone 35, drill for new zones from underground and evaluate its mining and metallurgical options. A 10,000-metre surface drilling program is also planned.
