GOLD: Sirios cuts 10.6 metres of 11.2 g/t including visible gold at Cheechoo

Visible gold in fractured tonalite from hole No.41 at the Cheechoo project.

QUEBEC – Sirios Resources of Montreal has released the results of three more holes drilled recently at its Cheechoo gold project in northern Quebec.

The best hole, No.99 (cut to 50 g/t), drilled a near surface interval of 10.6 metres grading 11.2 g/t gold, including two intersections of one metre each at 63.3 g/t and 50.5 g/t. Visible gold was seen in both intersections. The mineralized material was cored from 38.1 to 38.7 metres below surface.

Hole No.96 returned 4.5 metres grading 1.1 g/t gold from roughly 205 metres below surface.

Hole No. 97 returned 5.1 metres at 1.3 g/t gold, including 2.0 metres of 2.7 g/t. The mineralization was intersected from 147 to 151 metres below surface.

Sirios’s fully owned Cheechoo property is located at Eeyou Istchee James Bay, Quebec, 800 km north of Montreal, 200 km east of Wemindji and less than 10 km of Goldcorp’s Eleonore gold mine.
