QUEBEC – Montreal’s Maudore Minerals says assays from its current underground drilling campaign at the Sleeping Giant mine 80 km north of Amos include some high grade intersections. On the 725 level in the Shaft Shadow area, core tested at 9.0 g/t Au over 0.9 metres in the No.8 vein; 9.6 g/t over 0.6 metres (No.20 vein); and 57.1 g/t over 1.3 metres, including 92.1 g/t over 0.8 metres (No.30 vein).
Maudore continues to drill new zones from the 975 level including 135.0 g/t Au over 0.4 metres (No.16 vein); 17.4 g/t over 3.4 metres, including 77.6 g/t over 0.7 metres (785N structure); 66.5 g/t over 0.8 metres (785N structure); and 17.0 g/t over 0.5 metres (new vein discovery).
Work at the Sleeping Giant mine was suspended in January 2012. Aurbec, a Maudore subsidiary, has begun testing selected remnant stopes that were mined by previous owners. Selling the gold from mineralized material is helping to offset costs of the drill program.
A new mineral resource estimate is being prepared. Meanwhile, the Aurbec website (Aurbec.com) was under construction, but may be live when the new 43-101 report is finished.
