Osisko recently doubled this year’s Windfall Lake drilling program to 800,000 metres. The mineral resource defined by the previous operator (Oban Mining) was 2.8 million tonnes at 8.42 g/t gold (748,000 oz.) in the indicated category and 3.5 million tonnes at 7.62 g/t (860,000 oz.) in the inferred category.
