Hemlo Intersects Multiple Anomalous Gold Horizons at the North Limb Project

 

 

 

 

 

Hemlo Explorers Inc. (TSX-V: HMLO) announced the final drill results from it’s 18-hole 7,891 m program (Table 1) at the North Limb project, located 15 km north of Barrick Gold Corporation’s Hemlo Mine near Marathon, Ontario.

 

Highlights:

 

  • Armand Lake Volcanic Complex Lunny East Showing: Drillholes NL21-12 (Section L+900), NL21-13 (Section L+350), NL21-14, -15 (Section L-1140), NL21-16 (Section L+1100), NL21-17 (Section L+800) and NL21-18 (Section L+1350) totalling 2,396.15 m were drilled on five sections over a strike length of 1,000 m (Figure 1). These holes were designed to test the North and Southern contacts of the ALVC, areas of possible folding and elevated gold, antimony and molybdenum in surface rock and soil sampling.
  • Drilling intercepted anomalous gold horizons on all sections (Figures 2-7, Table 2) and can be correlated to surface sampling in holes NL21-13, -16 and -17 over vertical distances of approximately 275 metres, 175 metres and 150 metres, respectively.
  • All available historical drillhole data has been now successfully digitally captured and 3D© Leapfrog drillhole and geochemical modelling is ongoing and additional drillhole planning is being evaluated for future exploration.

 

As has been reported with previous drill results from the Musher, Armand and Lunny West showings, multi-element ICP data using ioGAS© geochemical software has identified widespread pathfinder elements such as Ag, Sb, Mo, As, V, Te, +/- Hg Cu and Zn at the Lunny East showing. Some of these elements have been positively correlated with Au mineralization at the nearby Hemlo Mine, while others define broader horizons indicating a more extensive corridor of hydrothermal activity.

 

Brian Howlett, CEO of Hemlo Explorers, commented “We are satisfied that our initial drill program at the North Limb project demonstrated widespread anomalous gold horizons that can be in some instances correlated over considerable vertical depth. Additionally, extensive elevated pathfinder elements, as seen at the Hemlo Mine, defined a broad hydrothermal system over a strike length of in excess of 5 kilometres covering a large portion of the ALVC trend.”

The North Limb geological setting resembles that of the Hemlo Mine with felsic to intermediate volcanic and sedimentary assemblages, quartz-feldspar intrusives in a district scale, high strain arcuate structural regime. Much of the mineralization at the Hemlo Mine is confined to high strain zones and spatially associated with the contact between felsic volcanic rocks and sedimentary rocks. Similar alteration of silica, sericite, feldspar and vanadium to that of the Hemlo Deposit is found with anomalous gold along the Armand and Musher Horizons which have strike lengths of 7 and 8 kilometres, respectively.

 

Quality Assurance – Quality Control

 

Once received from the drill and processed, all drill core samples are sawn in half, labelled and bagged. The remaining drill core is securely stored on site. Numbered security tags are applied to lab shipments for chain of custody requirements. The Company inserts quality control (QC) samples at regular intervals in the sample stream, including blanks and reference materials with all sample shipments to monitor and evaluate laboratory performance. The QA/QC program was designed by Dan McCormack, PGO and is overseen by Dr. Lesley Rose, PGO.

 

Drill core samples are submitted to Activation Laboratories’ analytical facility in Thunder Bay, Ontario for preparation and analysis is completed at the Thunder Bay and Ancaster facilities. Both labs are accredited to the ISO/IEC 17025 standard for gold and multi-element assays and all analytical methods include quality control materials at set frequencies with established data acceptance criteria. The entire sample is crushed and 500 g is pulverized. Analysis for gold is by 30 g fire assay fusion with atomic absorption (AAS) finish with a lower limit of 0.005 ppm (5 ppb) and upper limit of 5 ppm (5000 ppb). Samples with gold assays greater than 2 ppm are re-analyzed using a 50 g fire assay fusion with gravimetric finish. A selected number of samples are also analyzed using a 60 element geochemical package by aqua regia digestion, followed by a combination of Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-OES) and Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) for analysis.
