FRENCH GUIANA – Reunion Gold Corp. announced the discovery of new high grade gold mineralization at the Saint-Michel prospect, part of its Boulanger project in the north-central part of the country. The company sampled 42 dumps located near artisanal shafts and adits.
The shafts and adits were dug by artisanal miners late last year. With the help of the French army and police, the area was recently cleared of illegal activity. Reunion identified 47 shafts and adits over an area 260 metres by 95 metres. The company sampled 42 of the dumps left behind, finding they have an average grade of 17.3 g/t gold. The highest assay was 45.9 g/t gold.
Grab samples from a limited number of outcrop samples returned assays up to 18.2 g/t gold, and a 1-metre channel sample tested 26.6 g/t.
An induced polarization survey over chargeability anomalies, one of which covered the Saint-Michel artisanal workings, is completed. These workings coincide with the western-most chargeability anomaly. A drilling program is planned at the Saint-Michel prospect.
Elsewhere at Boulanger, Reunion has completed a 1,100-metre drill program at the Central Bief and Carapa zones. Learn more at www.ReunionGold.com.
