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.
