Mazorro Resources and Adventure Gold Release Second Set of Drill Results from Lapaska Gold Property

Mazorro Resources and Adventure Gold have reported the next set of drill results from the Phase 2 surface diamond drilling program conducted on the Lapaska Gold Property in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt, which is located 20 km towards the east of Val-d'Or, Quebec. Adventure Gold owns the Lapaska Gold Property, which is under option to Mazorro Resources.

The second set of results of the Phase 2 surface diamond drilling was obtained from eight holes drilled in the West zone, the Lapaska Central zone, and two exploration targets.

In the Lapaska Central zone, the hole LP-11-35 intercepted 1.3 g/t gold over 124.7 m, including sections grading 5.2 g/t gold over 8.6 m and 7.2 g/t gold over 9.0 m at 70.0 m and 30.9 m depths, respectively; the hole LP-11-34 intercepted 0.8 g/t gold over 215.1 m, including a section grading 4.9 g/t gold over 13.1 m at 234.9 m depth; the hole LP-11-30 intercepted 0.5 g/t gold over 100.3 m, including a section grading 3.2 g/t gold over 5.0 m at 75.8 m depth; and the hole LP-11-28 intercepted 0.6 g/t gold over 15.6 m at 191.4 m depth.

In the West Zone, the hole LP-11-33 encountered 0.5 g/t gold over 25.6 m at 277.5 m depth, and the hole LP-11-32 intercepted 0.7 g/t gold over 10.9 m at 67.1 m depth.

In Phase 2 drill holes, the gold mineralization intersected is a characteristic of the Lapaska geological setting. Visible gold was identified in the drill core, but the mineralization includes disseminated pyrite in quartz-tourmaline veins and in modified dacite, which is a characteristic of the Lapaska Central zone. The gold intercepts at the west zone are linked with disseminated pyrite in diorite and feldspar porphyry dykes and in calcite veinlets and quartz-sericite.

Assay results for four holes, LP-11-36 to 39, from Phase 2 surface drilling are still pending, and final results will be released shortly.
