GOLD: Integra doubles Triangle zone contained ounces

QUEBEC – Integra Gold Corp. of Vancouver has updated the resource estimate for the Triangle deposit at the Lamaque gold project in Val d’Or. The update incorporates 117,734 metres of new drilling results.

Integra’s Sigma mill will treat ore from the Triangle gold deposit.

Using a cut-off of 3.0 g/t gold, the Triangle indicated resource doubled from 737,590 oz. to 1.5 million contained oz. in material grading 7.32 g/t gold. The inferred resource decreased by only 1% from 1.0 million contained oz.  to 991,800 oz. at an average grade of 5.67 g/t gold.

Integra says that the growth of indicated resources at Triangle is mostly contained within the same vertical footprint as previous estimates. That means that existing underground development can be used to access the additional resource. The company continues to work on the 1,219-metre exploration ramp, expected to reach the C2 structure of the Triangle deposit in early April with establishment of the first underground drill station to occur shortly afterwards.

The company has five diamond drills at Lamaque, including three at Triangle, one on the No. 4 plug, and one testing the Lamaque Deep target. Integra also plans to complete approximately 10,000 metres of underground definition drilling. The underground drilling will initially focus on drilling the C2 structure at 10-metre centers in the area selected for a bulk sample.
