GOLD: Sirios reports summer results from Cheechoo drilling

QUEBEC – The first results from four holes of the summer drilling program at the Cheechoo gold property in the James Bay region are in, and owner Sirios Resources has reason to be pleased.

Grades of 11.2 g/t Au over 5.8 metres including 56.2 g/t over 1.1 metres and 5.9 g/t Au over 8.8 metres including 40.6 g/t Au over 1.0 metre have been obtained in the extension of drill hole 25 (25 ext). Drill hole 57 has intersected 7.4 g/t Au over 3.5 metres while drill hole 59 intersected multiple sections grading between 1.4 g/t Au and 7.8 g/t Au over widths ranging between 1.0 to 5.7 metres. The complete extension of drill hole 25, down to a depth of 349 metres, yielded a weighted average grade of 1.2 g/t Au over 160 metres.

These early drill holes extend toward southeast zones already identified in the tonalite, said the company in a release. Sirios has drilled 6,930 metres in 27 NQ holes.
