OSISKO METALS INTERSECTS 9.40% ZINC+LEAD OVER 12.17 METRES AT PINE POINT
Osisko Metals Inc. has provided assay results from 127 drill holes completed in the M-40 area within the East Mill zone in the Pine Point mining camp (PPMC).
The objective of the 2018 to 2019 drill program was to convert the Cominco Ltd. unclassified near-surface historical resources into current mineral resources and locally extend known zones of mineralization. These holes were not included in the mineral resource estimate released in December, 2018, and they will help to convert inferred resources to the indicated category.
Highlights include drill hole M40-18-PP-072 that intersected 8.16 per cent zinc and 1.24 per cent lead over 12.17 metres from the definition drill program, while exploration drilling outside of mineralized pit-constrained resources returned 6.12 per cent zinc and 4.31 per cent lead over 6.00 metres in hole M40-18-PP-128.
