Enforcer Gold Corp. [VEIN-TSXV; N071-FSE] reported results from channel sampling on the Galena, No. 2 and No. 3 veins at the Montalembert Gold Project. The 7,300-hectare property is located 125 km west of Chibougamau in Quebec’s prolific Abitibi greenstone belt. The property lies 5 km from a paved highway and hydro-electric power.
Highlights from the No.2 North vein include 105.00 g/t gold over 1.0 metre, 3,310.00 g/t gold over 1.0 metre and 104.68 g/t gold over 2.0 metres. Refer to company press release for complete assays.
The Galena and No.2 veins are parallel, north-south striking and steeply east-dipping shear zones separated by ~80 m. The No.3 Vein is located ~175 m south and along strike of the No.2 Vein. The shear zones vary in width and cut variably chloritized, carbonatized and silicified basalt. They host quartz veins/stringers and trace to 5% pyrite, pyrrhotite, trace chalcopyrite and galena and fine to coarse free gold. Enforcer has been systematically exposing and channel sampling along the strike extensions of the veins and peripheral to the veins.
Of a total 116 sawn channels in the Galena-No.2-No.3 vein area, 27 were infill samples along the Galena Vein, 4 were cut over the trace of the vein in the Galena North extension, 27 were cut over the No. 2 North extension, 8 were cut over the No. 2 South extension and 13 were cut over multiple veins at the No.3 Vein exposure. On the Galena North exposure, the trace of the vein was lost into deep overburden, hence channel sampling in this area was largely peripheral to the trace of the structure.
As announced on August 30, 2017, Enforcer resumed diamond drilling despite a continued backlog of assays at the lab. The situation has yet to change as the Company awaits complete results for the first 10 holes drilled.
Steve Roebuck, President & CEO, said, “We continue to be encouraged by the continuity of the shear zones outside of the historical exposure limits and to find high-grade zones of gold mineralization along the length of both veins. We expect that the SRK study will greatly enhance our understanding of the vein systems and focus our exploration moving forward.”
Enforcer has committed over $2.2M to fund its 2017 exploration program that is expected to run uninterrupted through late fall 2017.
