Osisko Infill Drilling Returns More High Grade Values In Lynx
TORONTO, April 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Osisko Mining Inc. (OSK:TSX. “Osisko” or the “Corporation”) is pleased to provide new infill drilling results from the definition drill program at its 100% owned Windfall gold project located in the Abitibi greenstone belt, Urban Township, Eeyou Istchee James Bay, Québec.
Operations remain temporarily suspended in respect of the Government of Québec’s closure of all non-essential business in effort to contain COVID-19. Osisko is ready to resume drilling activities at Windfall once the temporary suspension is lifted. Drilling will remain focused on the Lynx deposit, exploration on the main mineralized zones, and deep exploration in the central areas of the mineralized system. Additional results from pre-shut down drilling will continue to be released as they become available in the coming weeks. These analytical results are from laboratories outside Québec that have continued sample processing operations.Significant new analytical results from Lynx and Triple Lynx are presented below, including 62 intercepts in 27 drill holes and 8 wedges.Selected high-grade intercepts include: 153 g/t Au over 3.4 metres in WST-19-0234; 108 g/t Au over 2.2 metres in WST-20-0372; 99.2 g/t Au over 2.0 metres in WST-20-0286; 91.3 g/t Au over 2.0 metres in OSK-W-20-2139-W6 and 51.6 g/t Au over 2.8 metres in OSK-W-20-2100-W6.
