QMX Intersects Strong Initial Results From the River Target; 39.8 g/t Gold Over 2.0 Metres and 17.71 g/t Gold Over 4.0 Metres
TORONTO, Jan. 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — QMX Gold Corporation (“QMX” or the “Company”) (TSX:V:QMX) is pleased to release the first results from its reconnaissance drilling program on the River Target (Table 1). The River Target is located west of the Lac Herbin mine in the Bourlamaque batholith on the western side of QMX’s extensive land package in Val d’Or, Quebec (Figure 2).
The following results contain the first three (3) drill holes of the Fall 2019 reconnaissance drilling program on the River Target (Figure 1). This initial program consists of seven (7) drill holes for a total of 1,130 metres. The results of the remaining four (4) drill holes will be released once all the assays are back from the laboratory. “We are delighted that we immediately achieved high grade gold intersections in the first three drill holes on our new River target,” says Dr. Andreas Rompel, Vice President Exploration. “This gives us great optimism and encouragement to continue with our structural target delineation in general and for the River target in particular, where we anticipate establishing additional resources to our already substantial Bonnefond resource.”Highlights include (lengths are measured along the holes, Table 1):DDH 17421-19-045 returned 7.76 g/t Au over 2.9m.DDH 17421-19-046 returned 39.83 g/t Au over 2.0m.DDH 17421-19-047 returned 17.71 g/t Au over 4.0m.River TargetThe River Target is located in the Bourlamaque Zone, roughly 1 kilometer (km) west of the Lac Herbin-Dumont-Ferderber gold system that produced a total of 793,000 ounces of gold historically. The target was discovered in 2011 and had not been followed up since. The gold mineralization is hosted by Quartz-Tourmaline veins with pyrite in shear zones in the Bourlamaque batholith. The objective of the program is to evaluate the continuity of the grades and structures.Another round of drilling will be planned on this target once all the assays are back and the 3D modeling is completed.Table 1: Highlights from the River Target* Reported length measured along the hole.
** Au uncappedQuality ControlDuring the drilling program, assay samples were taken from the NQ core and sawed in half. One half is sent to Swaslab Ltd. Both are certified commercial laboratories. The other half of the core is retained for future reference. A strict quality assurance and quality control program was applied to all samples, which included insertion of mineralized standards, blank samples and duplicates inside each batch of 20 samples. The gold analyses were completed by fire-assay with an atomic absorption finish on 50 grams of material. Repeats were carried out by fire-assay with a gravimetric finish on each sample containing 5.0 g/t Au or more. The gold analyses were undertaken by fire-assay on 50 grams of pulp with an atomic absorption finish. Repeats were carried out by fire-assay with a gravimetric finish on each sample containing 5.0 g/t Au or more.
