GOLD: Recent drilling highlights "long and strong"

ONTARIO and QUEBEC – Anyone exploring for gold (and sometimes it seems 90% of explorationists are thus engaged) is likely to smile broadly when imaging long intersections of strong grades. It takes more than a few good holes to make a successful gold mine, but here are some recent results that will have gold bugs grinning.

Osisko Mining Corp. of Montreal has cut 54.0 metres of 5.5 g/t Au at its Upper Beaver project in Kirkland Lake, ON. That intersection included 11.0 metres of 18.7 g/t Au with 1.9% Cu. Upper Beaver is a former producer that turned out 140,000 oz of gold and 12 million lb of copper during intermittent operation from 1912 to 1971. (

Sirios Resources, also of Montreal, has one of the longest intersections that we have noted in quite a while – 191.4 metres grading 0.214 g/t Au. That's an respectable grade, and within that intersection there was 46.0-metre section that assayed 0.50 g/t. These assays came from the Cheechoo gold project in the Opinaca area of James Bay, QC, close to the Éléonore gold mine currently in development. (

Integra Gold Corp. of Vancouver continues to drill noteworthy mineralization at its Lamaque project in Val d'Or, QC. The latest results from the No.5 plug include 38.74 g/t Au over 1.8 metres, 10.90 g/t over 3.0 metres and 21.12 g/t over 1.0 metres. The zone is open at depth below 650 metres. Integra's property is adjacent to the former Sigma and Lamaque gold mines. (
