Abcourt intersects 91.8 g/t Au over 0.5m at the Sleeping Giant Mine






Abcourt Mines Inc. (TSX-V: ABI) (OTCQB: ABMBF) is pleased to announce results from the underground diamond drilling campaign at the Sleeping Giant mine.


From December 2023 until April 30, 2024, Abcourt has carried out, from levels 235 and 295, 17 drilling holes totaling 2,005 meters in the DAC 5 area. The first diamond drill holes realized are used to optimize the mining plan of the DAC 5 sector accessible in 2024 for the extraction start.


Abcourt presents the results of 5 drill holes totaling 493m drilled underground from level 295.


The highlights of the analysis results, included in this press release, are as follows:


91.8 g/t Au over 0.5 meter in hole 29-269.


30.8 g/t Au over 0.5 meter in hole 29-273.


The main results of holes drilled from level 295 are displayed in Table 1.

The main results of the holes drilled from the 295 level are shown in a longitudinal section and plan view (Figure 1).

Drilling data from holes 29-270 and 29-273 show that the main vein (vein 1) continues westward and that we can advance the development of the sill and sublevel 1.


The drilling data also show the presence of another mineralized vein (vein 4) oriented N-S to NNW-SSE and with a slight dip visible in the sub-levels and intercepted by drilling 29-269.


In light of these results, we added drill holes to evaluate the western and upward extension of vein 1 as well as the northward extension of vein 4.


Mohamed Haithem Bennia, Chief Geologist at the Sleeping Giant mine, comments: “We are very excited about the initial results obtained in the DAC 5 sector, which confirms the extensions of our veins and indicate the presence of other veins that need to be tested. This data justifies additional drilling work in order to provide engineers with an accurate and complete model for optimizing the mining plan.”


Quality Control Measures


The drilling, core description and analysis preparation work was carried out under the supervision of Mohamed Haithem Bennia, geo, chief geologist, qualified person according to Regulation 43-101.


Following an analytical quality assurance and control program, blank samples and certified reference materials as well as duplicates were added among the AQTK caliber core samples before being crushed at the Sleeping Giant mine’s in-house assay laboratory and analyzed by Techni-Lab S.G.B. Abitibi inc. division of ActLabs which is an accredited external laboratory, registered to ISO 9001 and ISO/IEC 17025 certified CCN (lab707), MELCC (lab375) located in Sainte-Germaine-Boulé, Quebec


The analyses were carried out by pyroanalysis (A.A.) with finishing by atomic absorption. Samples with a grade greater than 10g/t Au were reanalyzed with a gravimetric finish.
