ZINC-COPPER: Yorbeau extends Gap lens at Scott Lake

QUEBEC – Yorbeau Resources of Montreal continues to extend the Gap lens at its Scott Lake project 20 km west of Chibougamau. Recent drilling returned 20.6 metres of 5.9% Zn, 0.7% Cu and 50.9 g/t Ag including 6.5 metres of 6.4% Zn, 2.3 g/t Au and 73.3 g/t Ag.

The above hole was part of a follow-up program to test the eastern extension of the Gap lens. The hole was placed outside the resources as currently estimated at the project.

The Scott Lake property, 100% owned by Yorbeau, hosts a number of polymetallic massive sulphide lenses. A resource estimate on Scott Lake was commissioned by former operator Cogitore Resources and prepared in 2011. It established combined inferred resources of 5.45 million tonnes grading 1.2% Cu, 4.6% Zn, 0.2 g/t Au and 34 g/t Ag, using an net smelter return cut-off of $80 per tonne.
