QUEBEC – Integra Gold Corp. of Vancouver has decided to expand the drilling program to 90,000 metres at the Lamaque South gold project near Val d'Or. So far 49,650 metres have been completed. High grades – up to 98.83 g/t Au – have the company hopeful that it can find more.
Integra says it has more confidence in the continuity of the steeply dipping C4 structure at the Triangle zone. Step out drilling returned 7.45 g/t over 5.0 metres. Mineralization was also encountered in the C2 and C2 sub-parallel structure located up strike from C4. Uncut intercepts included 39.17 g/t over 2.0 metres and 22.15 g/t over 4.0 metres. There is potential for additional, sizeable mineralized horizons at Triangle, according to the company.
Potential exists as well for the discovery of new, sub-parallel and steeply dripping mineralization at depth below C4. One hole from the deeper area returned 11.24 g/t Au over 4.0 metres, 9.22 g/t over 1.0 metre, 4,94 g/t over 6.0 metres, and 36.10 g/t over 1.3 metres.
Metallurgical and infill drilling shows continuity of both thickness and grade, said Integra. Separate holes returned 27.09 g/t Au over 1.3 metres, 59.95 g/t over 2.0 metres, 40.78 g/t over 2.0 metres, and 98.93 g/t over 2.5 metres.
