Toronto-based Wallbridge Mining Co. is no stranger to high grades as the company continues to drill its Fenelon gold property 75 km northwest of Matagami. It is all there – high grades, visible gold and broadly mineralized intervals.
The 2019 exploration goal is to expand the known footprint of the mineralization and demonstrate the growing size potential. Here are some highlights:
- Hole 19-0925-005A – 3.93 g/t gold over 20.7 metres, including 55.95 g/t over 1.24 metre in the Tabasco corridor;
- Hole FA-19-054 – 3.61 g/t gold over 19.0 metres including 9.31 g/t over 2.83 metres and 6.19 g/t over 2.6 metres also in the Tabasco corridor; and
- Hole FA-19-059 – 3.28 g/t gold over 17.6 metres (including 7.74 g/t over 1.83 metre and 72.35 g/t over 0.4 metre) included within a broad stockwork grading 1.02 g/t over 78.3 metres in the Area 51 corridor.
Wallbridge VP exploration Attila Penteck said the intersection of 3.61 g/t gold over 19.0 metres in hole FA-19-054 was a surprise. “Such significant mineralization has previously not been observed to be hosted by the sedimentary package at Fenelon, highlighting the fact that we now have multiple mineralization styles and host lithologies within the rapidly growing footprint of the Fenelon gold system.”
The company says underground drilling continues to intersect high grades at the Naga Viper zone. Highlights include:
- Hole 19-0970-001 – 64.69 g/t gold over 0.5 metre;
- Hole 19-1035-003 – 16.66 g/t gold over 2.3 metres; and
- Hole 19-0985-003 – 17.93 g/t gold over 0.65 metre.
