QUEBEC – Wallbridge Mining Co. of Lively, Ont., continues its successful drilling program at the Fenelon gold project 75 km northwest of Matagami. The most recent results included 98.90 g/t gold over 2.71 metres in the Habanero zone, 134.57 g/t over 1.70 metre and 11.23 g/t over 3.90 metres in the Paprika zone in hole 18-0990-017.

Hole 18-090-009 returned 242.00n g/t gold over 0.49 metre in the Paprika zone, and 10-0990-13 returned 24.30 g/t over 6.37 metres in the Habanero zone. Visible gold was seen in 45 of the 69 holes drilled to date. Assay results from 30 underground drill holes are pending.

Wallbridge is in the process of taking a 35,000-tonne bulk sample from the Fenelon property. By the end of September, more than 10,000 tonnes had been processed at the nearby Camflo mill. The bulk sample is expected to produce at least 19,000 oz. of gold and maybe as many as 26,000 oz.

Meanwhile, the third stope is being prepared for mining and development on the 5180 level is nearing the fourth stope. That level is also the site of a new underground drill station that will test the main high grade ore shoots down-plunge to 200 metres depth.
