QUEBEC - Century Mining of Blaine, WA, cut bonanza grades - 105.5 g/t Au over 1.69 metres - at its Lamaque gold project near Val d'Or. The assay came from surface drill hole 2610-7 that intersected the Bedard dyke between 18 and 229 metres below surface.
The Bedard dyke, which strikes southwest and dips steeply to the south, is located at the west end of the Sigma open pit. The dyke outcrops in the pit and will be an important ore source during the reopening of the Lamaque mine, says Century. The Bedard dyke is typical of the mineralized dykes found on the property, where the mineralization is contained both in flats within the steeply south-dipping dyke and within flats hosted by volcanic rocks adjacent to the dyke. The current drilling program was successful in delineating and confirming the spatial location of the dyke for mine planning and future development.
Hole 2610-7 also returned values of 2.55 g/t Au over 2.15 metres, 10.06 g/t over 1.92 metres, 6.14 g/t over 0.61 metres, 7.63 g/t over 0.87 metres, 25.20 g/t over 0.72 metres and 4.84 g/t over 0.88 metres.
