QUEBEC – Drilling at the Bachelor gold mine 90 km northeast of Lebel-sur-Quevillon continues to intersect auriferous mineralization. Owner Metanor Resources
of Val d’Or, QC, initially found a new zone in August during regional surface drilling. At that time, hole MO-15-14 returned 10.1 g/t Au over a core length of 26.2 metres near surface.
The company has confirmed the discovery of what it says is an “important” zone about 1 km south of the mine by drilling hole MO-15-81. That hole assayed 7.6 g/t Au over a core length of 14.88 metres between 6 and 22 metres below surface. Assays from additional holes are pending.
The Bachelor mine produced 130,341 oz of gold when it operated between 1982 and 1989. Metanor acquired it in 2005 and rebuilt the mill to include a carbon-in-pulp circuit. The first gold bar was poured in May 2012 and the mine reached commercial production in November 2013.
