QUEBEC – Integra Gold Corp. of Vancouver has released a new resource estimate for the Triangle deposit at its Lamaque South project in Val d’Or. The contained gold in the indicated portion has increased by 17.5% to 737,590 oz and the inferred portion by 15.2% to 1.0 million oz.
Using a 3 g/t Au cut-off, the global Lamaque resource is 5.4 million indicated tonnes at a grade of 6.78 g/t Au and 6.2 million inferred tonnes at 6.81 g/t Au. The project is estimated to contain 1.2 million oz in the inferred tonnage and 1.4 million oz in the inferred material.
Integra will use the new resource numbers to update the preliminary economic assessment, due in early Q1 2017. The company noted that the new numbers represent a three-fold increase compared to the number used in the January 2015 PEA.
Six drill s are currently turning on the Lamaque property and assays for 22,550 metres of core are pending. The results will be posted at www.IntegraGold.com when they become available.
