Callinex Intersects 18.7 Meters of 5.8% Zn Eq. at the Nash Creek Zinc Project
Highlights: Drill hole NC17-245 intersected 18.7m of 5.8% Zn Eq. including a higher grade interval of 5.0m grading 8.9% Zn Eq.; and
NC17-245 was completed to test the theory that historic drilling intersected unreported mineralization due to inadequate sampling based on visual observations.
VANCOUVER, Sept. 12, 2017 - Callinex Mines Inc. (the "Company" or "Callinex") (TSX-V: CNX; OTCQX: CLLXF) is pleased to announce results from four drill holes completed at the Company's 100% owned Nash Creek Project located within the Bathurst Mining District of New Brunswick (See Figures 1 and 2). Hole NC17-245 was drilled approximately 20m from historic drill hole NC79-06 that had only one 1.3m sample taken which assayed 2.2% Zn and 0.4% Pb (See Figure 3). The drill hole was completed to test the theory that historic drilling may have intersected unidentified mineralization due to inadequate sampling based on visual observations (See Figure 4). Drill hole NC17-245 was collared into mineralization and the first 19 samples all intersected above 2.5% zinc equivalent mineralization ("Zn Eq.") resulting in an 18.7m intersection grading 5.8% Zn Eq. (4.6% Zn, 0.7% Pb and 23.1 g/t Ag) beginning at 10m depth including a higher grade interval of 5.0m of 8.9% Zn Eq. (7.2% Zn, 1.2% Pb and 31.4 g/t Ag) (See Table 1).
