Tres-Or Resources has intersected significant mineralization from the primary two hole program conducted at the Fabre silver property, Northwest Quebec. The property is located at the Cobalt Silver Mining Camp’s southeast limits.

About 201 g/t silver over 9 m and 68.36 g/t silver over 30 m were intersected by the drill hole TRS F002-10, and 1510 g/t silver over 1 m was the high-grade individual sample. Tres-Or intersected 7.01 g/t silver over 5 m and 3.01 g/t silver over 35 m in the hole TRS F001-10. The company drilled TRS F002-10 and TRS F001-10 at the inclinations of 78.5° and 45°, respectively.

Tres-Or logged the core on site and then shipped to the field office in Haileybury, Ontario for comprehensive logging program. Multi-element ICP-MS along with fire assay was included in this core analysis. The company tested these samples in four phases. It has sent the first 8 samples to ACME Analytical Laboratories in British Columbia.

The company has previously encountered 1.1% bismuth, 2.7% cobalt and 714.2 g/t silver over 0.52 m and 0.4% bismuth, 8.0% cobalt and 600 g/t silver over 0.49 m from the Fabre Silver property. The company’s two-hole drilling program was specifically designed to validate and reproduce these drill intersections.

Tres-Or is confident that high-grade silver-rich mineralization has been found through the preliminary drilling conducted at the property. Successive drill program will prioritize the outlining of true width and orientation of the mineralized zone.
