Eastmain Resources has declared that it has discovered visible gold (VG) in 18 veins intersected in five new holes drilled at the Clearwater project, which is situated in Québec.
Visible gold identified in intersections from holes 386, and 388 through 391 was mainly discovered in two veins, namely V19 and T10, situated at the Eau Claire gold deposit’s northern border. This year’s former drill program results include high-grade intercepts of gold, including 66.5 g/t gold over 0.5 m and 38.4 g/t gold over 2.0 m within Vein 14 in hole 374, and 150 g/t gold in hole 375. Two intercepts exist in the 850 West Zone.
Numerous vein intervals together with visible gold have been encountered in holes 386, 389 and 390, which were collared 25 m apart in order to examine depth and lateral expansions of the 450 West Zone.
Three veins, including many visible gold grains were encountered in hole 386, which also includes 14 VG grains in Vein T10 and 20 VG grains in Vein T4. Hole 389 encountered three veins including VG in Veins T, T8. Hole 390 intersected two VG-bearing veins, namely T10 and T16.
Both holes 388 and 391 encountered visible gold in Vein V19, wherein the first hole hit a 3.1 m broad tourmaline-quartz vein including 18 VG grains and 17 telluride grains. Hole 391 intersected a 4.6 m broad vein and alteration zone, including 40 telluride and 74 VG grains.
During 2012, the company has drilled 17,435 m, totaling 48 holes, to extend the indicated and measured open pitable resources in the 850 and 450 West zones, respectively. Both the 850 and 450 west zones are exposed to depth and also laterally. Eastmain will strive to conduct the present 40,000 m drilling in order to extend the two zones, laterally and vertically.
