Majescor Resources, its associate SIMACT Alliance Copper-Gold (SACG) and SOMINE, based in Haiti, have reported on the drilling program at the Faille B gold prospect located in the SOMINE project, Haiti.
The drilling program was conducted in December 2009, but delayed the analysis and results owing to the earthquake in Port-Au-Prince during January 2011. So, from that time, these samples were stored, recovered and accounted properly prior to shipment to the Vancouver-based Acme analytical lab for analysis. The hole FB-09-09 intersected 77 g/t gold over 10.5 m.
The location of the Faille B orogenic gold vein prospect is 1.8 km to Douvray deposit’s south direction. During 1970s and 1980s, the United Nations team had drilled 16 holes and explored more than 15 trenches across the gold-quartz layers strike, which intersected volcanic rocks. The team disclosed that the system has shown up to 100 m across the strike and at around 300 m surface along the North-West strike. This system is open at the depth and along the strike. The geologists from UN and SOMINE conducted surface sampling and encountered several excellent values. The drilling program by UN intersects gold mineralization to 100 m depth and yielded 1.07 MT grading 2.36 g/t gold. The aim of the drilling program was to examine the expansions of the famous historical prospect.
Currently, Majescor is validating the latest information with the past UN data in order to find out if the Faille B indicates an individual project that could be extended before the Blondin and Douvray gold-copper porphyry prospects.
