QUEBEC – Recent drilling of the South Triangle zone at the Lamaque gold mine in Val d’Or has allowed owner Integra Gold Corp. of Vancouver to extend the zone by 175 metres, and it remains open along strike and at depth. The deepest mineralized material yet drilled lies 850 metres below the surface.
The company has received assays from the 13 holes it drilled in the South Triangle zone, including some high grades. Hole 13-05 cut 4.70 g/t Au over 4.5 metres, hole 13-06 cut 4.41 g/t over 7.5 metres and 8.18 g/t over 3.0 metres, and hole 13-07 returned 9.50 g/t Au over 2.0 metres and 10.54 g/t over 6.0 metres.
“In addition to the assay results disclosed today … the majority of South Triangle holes drilled into volcanics have intersected extensions of the gold bearing Triangle shear zones. Although not always mineralized these shear extensions indicate the potential for additional discoveries in the area,” said Integra president and CEO Stephen de Jong.
The drilling program at South Triangle was aimed at testing a highly magnetic anomaly 400 metres south of the Triangle zone.
