ROUYN-NORANDA, Quebec QUEENSTON MINING has reported on the first two drillholes at its Duquesne West gold property, 32 km north of Rouyn-Noranda. They encountered 8 metres grading 4.2 g/t Au and 13.6 metres grading 4.5 g/t Au in the Liz zone.
The Liz zone is a subvertical gold horizon hosted in sheared and altered intermediate-mafic volcanic rocks containing sericite, quartz, ankerite and 5-20% pyrite. It was drilled and assayed by previous owners in 1997. The zone has been intersected over a strike length of 300 metres and a dip length of 200 metres. Within this outline is what Queenston calls a "thick, consistent zone or ore-quality gold mineralization". It is open to the east, west and at depth.
The Duquesne property covers 60 claims over 1,000 hectares. It hosts 12 gold zones, five of which are estimated to host an inferred resource of 1.07 million tonnes at 8.9 g/t Au. Queenston has an option to earn a 60% interest from Geoconseils Jack Stoch and Globex Mining. Learn more at the Globex website, www.globexmining.com.
