The continued discovery of alteration, mineralization and favourable geology, indicative of the footwall area to a massive sulphide deposit unrelated to the Louvicourt mine and within an environment that would support the potential for a deep base metal massive sulphide deposit, is very encouraging.
Vice President, Exploration, commented, "The drilling results continue to indicate wide zones of sulphide mineralization in the areas where we have delineated coincident IP anomalies that extend over 6 kilometres of strike length.
The first three anomalies are situated in the northwestern part of the property and are regionally-developed parallel sulphide zones that can be traced for a distance of over 8 km.
