Cogitore Resources is conducting the diamond drilling programs at its two base metal projects. The company is operating at the Caribou project with a drilling rig. This project is situated in the Casa-Berardi region, the place wherein a 1,200 m of drilling is being conducted.
Earlier, in the 2009 drill program the company had discovered new high-grade sulphides located 3.4 km towards the Estrades mine’s western part. Around 300 x 400 m of thin vertical sheet has been formed by the deposit. The company encountered 1.7 g/t gold, 3.3% copper, 66.1 g/t silver and 6.5% zinc over 1.5 m core length from the six holes. The deposit stays exposed beneath 600 m in vertical direction.
The on-going drilling program focuses on an isolated conductor found towards the deposit’s eastern part and on strike during 2010. The program also focuses on the Caribou’s depth extension.
The company has mobilized a drill rig to the Scott Lake project, wherein a 7,600 m of drilling has been commenced. The program’s goal is to examine the structural interpretation, which was proposed by Roscoe Postle Associates, of the new resource assessment. The program will also test the definite areas for further resources, which contain the Central Lens segment’s expansion over 300 m gap, mineralized volcanics near the Gwillim Lake fault, SC-61 region along Tony Rhyolite, and western extension of CFO Lens.
Cogitore Resources focuses on exploring base metal in potential regions. Work is being targeted on the Abitibi Belt of Quebec and Ontario.
