Simon Marcotte, president and CEO, commented: “We are pleased to report these strong results from the Grey Fox zone, located at the southeastern extent of the almost-three-kilometre mineralized trend on the Philibert property. We see a clear opportunity to expand the mineralized envelope along strike and at depth. Additionally, very limited drilling has been done north and south of the trend to test for other parallel zones associated with the mineralized corridor, which the company plans to test in future programs. With 39 holes pending at Philibert and the 6,000-metre drill programs at both Lac Surprise and Croteau Est currently in progress, a high level of news flow is to be expected in the months ahead.”
Northern Superior has released results for 20 drill holes, including the entire 2022 results for the Grey Fox zone, located along the southeastern extent of the current mineralized corridor, which has been defined over 500 metres along strike and up to 250 metres vertical depth.
The remaining 39 holes are from the Red Fox, Arctic Fox and Corsac Fox zones and are expected to be released in the weeks ahead. The 2022 drill program focused on definition and extension of the mineralized zone along strike.
