Canadian Metals Inc. is pleased to announce the completion of its diamond drilling program at Langis. A total of 528m has been drilled in 16 holes.
A preliminary highlight is the extension of the sandstone formation 250m northeast of the area already having been drilled. This opens the opportunity for a potential increase of mineral resources. The consultant has established an exploration target of 8 to 12 Million tonnes of sandstone at surface probably usable for various application like Ferrosilicon with similar grades as adjacent analyzed holes in the range of 97.5 to 99.5% SiO2, same geological sedimentary formation where mineral resources have been defined 250m away. This potential has been established by the area and the thicknesses of intersections in the typical sandstone previously intersected in 2013 & 2015 drill program.
The potential quantity and grade is conceptual in nature and there has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resource, it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the target being delineated as a mineral resource.
The consultant has also collected over 400 kg of different composites representative samples from the face of the existing quarry for additional testing and also to provide material to clients for their assessment of the raw product.
The drill program is on schedule and results will be provided as soon as received, interpreted and validated for public disclosure by the independent qualified person.
