Bowmore Exploration Starts Phase I Drilling at Standard Gold and Duverny Properties

Bowmore Exploration has begun a phase I diamond drilling campaign, totaling 5,000 m, at the Duverny and Standard Gold properties situated in Quebec’s Abitibi region.

The goal of the phase I drill program will be to examine the host granodiorite intrusion for the potential gold mineralization expansions along 700 m spaced segments and to validate several previous gold intersections near the Standard Gold mine, which was formerly producing. The length and breadth of the intrusion that was outlined through the former drilling and its aeromagnetic signature are 4.8 km and 150-250 m, respectively. This intrusion is present on the two properties and has the Standard Gold deposit, and regional, strong carbonate alteration alike the previous Larder lake gold camp, Ontario.

The company formerly conducted drilling around the underground and surface holes of the Standard Gold mine and has shown possibility for bulk tonnage of mineralized gold along the granodiorite intrusion and around the previously-producing mine. Most of the previously drilled holes are partly assayed, but a few holes were completely examined and yielded large intersections.

The quality and strength of the previous gold intersections were not verified by the company. Bowmore has considered that these results are significant for the planned future drilling campaign.

The company has taken steps to get all the essential permits and agreements to access the property and will drill at the targeted regions. It will expand the drill program to the winter period for permitting access to the damp areas of the properties.
