Osisko Intersects 202 g/t Au Over 9.0 Metres at Windfall
TORONTO, Aug. 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Osisko Mining Inc. (OSK:TSX. “Osisko” or the “Corporation”) is pleased to provide new analytical results from the ongoing definition and expansion drill program at its 100% owned Windfall gold project located in the Abitibi greenstone belt, Urban Township, Eeyou Istchee James Bay, Québec.
Drill hole OSK-W-20-2059-W4 returned an outstanding intercept averaging 202 g/t Au over 28 metres core length in Lynx 4 (202 g/t Au over 9.0 metres estimated true width). This drill hole intercepted the mineralized zone at a lower than usual core angle (20 degrees), resulting in an estimated true width of approximately 30% of the core length. The interval expands the Lynx 348 Wireframe by 25 metres to the southwest.Osisko President and Chief Executive Officer John Burzynski commented: “Lynx has once again delivered very impressive results, giving us one of the highest-grade intercepts in our drilling to date. Our infill drill program continues to highlight the high-grade continuity within the resource area, which remains open down plunge and importantly, towards surface.”Significant new analytical results from 64 intercepts in 20 new drill holes and 12 wedges are presented below, including: 171 g/t Au over 2.5 metres in WST-20-0463; 173 g/t Au over 2.0 metres in OSK-W-20-2139-W8; 21.0 g/t Au over 13.0 metres in OSK-W-2256-W1; and 52.7 g/t Au over 2.2 metres in WST-20-0447.
