Balmoral Intersects 6.43 Metres Grading 4.36 g/t Gold Within 48 Metre Wide Gold Zone in Deepest Hole to Date at Bug Lake

 

 

 

 

 

Balmoral Resources Ltd. (TSX:BAR)  (OTCQX:BALMF) announced that the first of three deep holes drilled this summer on its wholly owned Martiniere Property in Quebec has successfully extended the Bug North gold deposit to a vertical depth of approximately 550 vertical metres. This intercept, the deepest to date along the Bug Lake Gold Trend, increases the known vertical extent of the Bug North deposit by 140 metres (or 36%) and confirms that the deposit remains open down-plunge for further expansion.

 

 

Hole BLD-16-01 intersected the Bug North Footwall Zone over a down-hole width of 48.55 metres, returning an average grade of 1.07 g/t gold. Two higher grade sections are present within this interval which returned 1.57 metres grading 6.66 g/t gold and a deeper intercept of 6.43 metres grading 4.36 g/t gold, including 1.50 metres grading 10.75 g/t gold. Several other gold mineralized intervals were intersected at shallower depths (see Table below; Figure 1 and Figure 2).

 

 

The Company also reported results from hole MDE-16-232 which returned 13.55 metres grading 1.66 g/t gold from the Bug North Footwall Zone including two higher grade intervals of 1.71 metres grading 5.27 g/t gold and 1.15 metres grading 9.63 g/t gold. MDE-16-232 intersected the Bug North Footwall Zone approximately 300 metres shallower than BLD-16-01 indicating that the zone may be increasing in width to depth.

 

 

MDE-16-232 also intersected a shallow zone of gold mineralization to the east of the Bug North deposit in the Martiniere East area. This shallow intercept returned 32.39 metres grading 0.60 g/t gold, including a high grade core of 1.85 metres grading 7.05 g/t gold. This interval may correlate with the nearby ME-23 Zone (6.30 metres grading 6.40 g/t gold; see NR12-12, April 25, 2012) expanding the high-grade gold mineralization at shallow depths in the Martiniere East area.

 

 

“The first of the deep holes targeting the down-plunge extension of the Bug North deposit demonstrate the continuation of the gold mineralized system and high-grade gold mineralization to depths of at least 550 vertical metres, representing a significant expansion of the deposit and confirmation of our working model,” said Darin Wagner, President and CEO of Balmoral Resources. “With the successful expansion of the Bug North deposit to depth, the extension of the Trend to the southeast (see below) and the recent rapid growth of the Bug South deposit we have made significant strides forward in our evaluation and testing of this important new gold environment in the Detour region, and plan to continue with our expansion and delineation drill programs in early 2017.”

* Reported drill intercepts are not true widths. At this time there is insufficient data with respect to the shape of the mineralization to calculate true orientations in space although the reported intercepts are estimated to range between approximately 60 and 80% of true thickness. All values presented uncapped.

 

 

SOUTHEAST ZONE EXPANSION

 

 

Drill hole MDE-16-230, the southeastern-most hole reported to date from the Southeast Zone of the Bug Lake Trend (see Figure 1), intersected a broad zone of gold mineralization (13.49 metres grading 1.27 g/t gold) with a high grade core (0.86 metres grading 16.60 g/t gold). Gold mineralization has now been intersected for approximately 700 metres along the southeast segment of the Trend and remains open along strike and to depth on all sections.

 

 

Holes MDE-16-229 and MDE-16-230 were stratigraphic holes which did not specifically target the Bug Lake Trend gold system. MDE-16-229 was drilled to examine the geology in the vicinity of the mid-swamp fault system. It intersected a broad zone of low grade gold mineralization which had not previously been detected. MDE-16-230 tested the stratigraphy south of the Lac du Doigt (Finger Lake) Fault in order to better constrain this structural corridor.

 

 

Results from an additional 42 drill holes completed on the Martiniere Property during the summer/fall program, and six holes completed on the Detour East Property, remain pending. These including numerous follow-up holes to the intercept of 115.45 metres grading 1.40 g/t gold (see NR16-19; Sept 7, 2016) from the Bug South deposit.

 

 

Drilling has now been suspended until after freeze-up. Logging and sampling of holes from the summer/fall program is expected to be completed within the next two weeks.
