Integra Gold drills 5.5 metres of 80.32 g/t gold at Lamaque
Integra Gold Corp. [ICG-TSXV; ICGQF-OTCQX] has released the third round of assay results from its fall 2015/winter 2016 drill program on the Triangle deposit on the Lamaque South gold project located in Val d’Or, Quebec.
“The bulk of the Triangle mineralization is hosted within a series of subparallel, steeply dipping, stacked C structures which demonstrate a high degree of periodicity and continuity. We are encouraged by the discovery of additional C-type structures below the known limits of the Triangle deposit and are awaiting results from a number of deeper holes which were designed to test the extent of gold mineralization between 1,000 metres and 1,500 m vertical depth,” said President and CEO Stephen de Jong.
Triangle gold deposit drill results
Drilling conducted since September, 2015, at Triangle focused on widely spaced step-out and extensional drilling of the C4/C5/C6 structures, and on infill drilling within selected areas of the C1 and C2 structures. Characteristic geological host units and alteration assemblages associated with gold-bearing veins present within the structures were observed in most drill holes, similar to those reported in previous news releases. The company’s geological model continues to demonstrate the predictive nature of these high-grade gold-bearing vein structures.
Results from step-out drilling conducted on the recently identified C6 mineralized structure at Triangle (approximately 100 m structurally below the C5 structure) extend the known limits of that structure up to 100 m farther west of previous intercepts on C6, at a vertical depth of 750 m. This new uncut intercept in TM-15-066 assayed 80.32 grams per tonne gold over 5.5 m (including 437.06 g/t Au over one m; average of 7.1 g/t Au over 5.5 m when high-grade values are capped at 34.3 g/t Au); the reported thickness is a downhole width measurement.
In addition, significant high-grade gold mineralization was reported in infill drilling on the C1 and C2 structures at relatively shallow depths (above 350 metres vertical) extending and/or confirming the continuity of these zones along strike. Uncut intercepts include 77.83 g/t gold over 3.1 metres in hole TM-15-074 in the C1 structure (including 118.24 g/t gold over two metres; average of 22.79 g/t gold when capped at 34.3 g/t), 18.00 g/t gold over 6.5 metres in hole TM-15-075 (average 11.41 g/t gold over 6.5 metres when capped at 34.3 g/t gold) and 9.69 g/t gold over three metres in TM-15-078 in the C2 structure. All reported thicknesses are measurement of down-hole widths.
