GOLD: Wallbridge drills 149 g/t confirming expansion potential of Fenelon

Drill core from the Fenelon gold project.

QUEBEC – Wallbridge Mining Company of Toronto says drilling at its Fenelon gold project 75 km northwest of Matagami has “exceeded expectations” and confirmed the resource expansion potential of the property.

Five of the nine holes completed intersected significant mineralization:

  • Hole FA-17-07 intersected three mineralized zones including 7.06 metres of 149.08 g/t gold with a higher grade sub-interval of 3.72 metres of 281.30 g/t gold.
  • Hole FA-17-08 intersected two mineralized zones including 5.16 g/t gold over 2.68 metreswith a sub-interval of 32.30 g/t gold over 0.39 metres.
  • Hole FA-17-02 intersected three mineralized zones including 3.04 g/t gold over 4.58 metres.

Wallbridge says the drill results prove good continuity of zone 110 that was not included in last year’s resource estimate. At least two new zones were intersected, and all zones remain open. More drilling is planned.

Fenelon produced bulk samples from an open pit in 2001 and from underground in 2004. View maps at
