Radisson Mining Resources Inc. recently has informed that after the conclusion of the 2018 drilling program, of which assays are pending for 3,850 m, the company has finished a litho-structural modeling and appraised the present geological model for the O’Brien property. The O’Brien gold project is made up of two contiguous properties signifying 4.5 km of strike in the Bousquet-Cadillac mining camp along the Larder-Lake-Cadillac Break halfway between Rouyn-Noranda and Val-d’Or in Quebec, Canada.

O’Brien gold project litho-structural modeling presentation
A brief about the ore zones network interpretation and the reviewed litho-structural model can currently be viewed on the company’s website.
Radisson’s management is taking part in the PDAC convention and invites interested parties to visit Booth #2908 in the Investors Exchange in the Metro Toronto Convention Center to gain more insight about the reinterpretation in progress at the O’Brien gold project.
New interpretation highlights
The new structural interpretation is based on present and historic drill holes and emphasizes robust compatibility with the historic data and geometry of the Old O’Brien mine, where 90% of gold production resulted from the crossing of a conjugated veins system (Sauvé et Trudel, 1990)
Three preferential mineralized orientations are detected; East-South-East (ESE), EAST-North-East (ENE), and East-West (EW)
ENE mineralized corridors seem to be spatially related with the interpreted ENE faults
Steep eastward plunging gold enrichment vectors (“ore shoots”) are recognized on F, 36E and Vintage zones. These vectors appear at the intersection of the conjugated ENE and ESE quartz veins and in the vicinity, along the axes of asymmetrically folded quartz veins.
The structural interpretation considerably increases the company’s understanding of the O’Brien gold project. This will enable Radisson to produce high potential drill targets.
In the present resources area, the vertical extension of the identified ore shoots was established by drilling to a depth of 550 m. In comparison, the Old O’Brien mine production reached a depth of 1,100 m and stays untested below
