QUEBEC – Integra Gold Corp
. of Vancouver has mobilized the first underground drill at the Triangle zone to begin a 10,000-metre definition drill program on the C2 structure. The Triangle zone is part of Integra’s Lamaque gold project in Val d’Or.

Drilling at the Triangle zone from November 2016 to March 2017 has nearly tripled the indicated resource. That category now stands at 1.15 million tonnes grading 8.65 g/t gold and containing 318,750 oz. The inferred resource shrank to 31,800 tonnes grading 6.01 g/t gold and containing 6,140 oz.
The next step at Lamaque is bulk sampling, and Integra has chosen BBA Group
to supervise the work and assure the quality of sampling results. The sample will be taken from the upper portion of the C2 structure, and is to be complete in the second half of this year. Bulk sampling will advance the company’s understanding of the gold distribution, reconcile resource numbers, and confirm gold recovery in the mill.
Meanwhile, the Triangle exploration ramp has advanced to 850 metres, and there is 1,345 metres of total underground development. Drill bays have been established on the 76 and 94 levels, and a ventilation raise from the 68 level to the surface will be connected later this spring.
