Osisko Intersects 40.8 g/t Au Over 4.1 Metres at Windfall

 

 

 

 

 

 

Osisko Mining Inc. (TSX:OSK) is pleased to provide new results from the ongoing drill program at its 100% owned Windfall Lake gold project located in the Abitibi greenstone belt, Urban Township, Eeyou Istchee James Bay, Québec. The 800,000 metre drill program combines definition, expansion and exploration drilling in and around the main Windfall gold deposit and the adjacent Lynx deposit (located immediately NE of Windfall).

 

 

Significant new analytical results from 31 intercepts in 14 drill holes and 6 wedges focused on infill and expansion drilling in the Main Windfall lake deposit are presented below.

 

 

Highlights from the new results include: 40.8 g/t Au over 4.1 metres in OSK-W-18-823-W2; 53.9 g/t Au over 2.9 metres in OSK-W-18-1402-W2; 36.1 g/t Au over 3.2 metres in OSK-W-18-1431 and 32.8 g/t Au over 2.3 metres in OSK-W-18-1435. Maps showing hole locations and full analytical results are available at www.osiskomining.com.

President and CEO John Burzynski commented: “Good results again from our drilling at Windfall as we look forward to our initial mineral resource estimate on schedule for delivery in May. Although today’s results are outside the cut-off date and won’t be included in the mineral resource calculation in mid-March, they will add to the upside potential of Windfall as we head towards the feasibility study in early 2019. Particularly encouraging is that we are still seeing expansion potential in all of the main zones at Windfall-Lynx underscored in today’s results with the extension of the Underdog FW4 Zone by 70 metres up plunge from the previous mineralized intercept.”

Qualified Person

 

 

The scientific and technical content of this news release has been reviewed, prepared and approved by Mr. Louis Grenier, M.Sc.A., P.Geo. (OGQ 800), Project Manager of the Windfall Lake gold project, who is a “Qualified Person” as defined by National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects.

 

 

Quality Control and Reporting Protocols

 

 

True widths determinations are estimated at 65-80% of the reported core length intervals for most of the zones. Assays are uncut except where indicated. Intercepts occur within geological confines of major zones but have not been correlated to individual vein domains at this time. Reported intervals include minimum weighted averages of 3.0 g/t Au diluted over core lengths of at least 2.0 metres. All NQ core assays reported were obtained by either 1-kilogram screen fire assay or standard 50-gram fire-assaying-AA finish or gravimetric finish at ALS Laboratories in Val d’Or, Québec, Thunder Bay and Sudbury, Ontario or Vancouver, British Colombia or Bureau Veritas in Timmins, Ontario. The 1-kilogram screen assay method is selected by the geologist when samples contain coarse gold or present a higher percentage of pyrite than surrounding intervals. Selected samples are also analyzed for multi-elements, including silver, using an Aqua Regia-ICP-AES method at ALS Laboratories. Drill program design, Quality Assurance/Quality Control and interpretation of results is performed by qualified persons employing a QA/QC program consistent with NI 43-101 and industry best practices. Standards and blanks are included with every 20 samples for QA/QC purposes by the Corporation as well as the lab. Approximately 5% of sample pulps are sent to secondary laboratories for check assay.

 

 

About the Windfall Lake Gold Deposit

 

 

The Windfall Lake gold deposit is located between Val-d’Or and Chibougamau in the Abitibi region of Québec, Canada. The mineral resource defined by the previous operator comprises 2,762,000 tonnes at 8.42 g/t Au (748.000 ounces) in the indicated category and 3,512,000 tonnes at 7.62 g/t Au (860,000 ounces) in the inferred category (sourced from a technical report dated June 10, 2015 entitled “Preliminary Economic Assessment of the Windfall Lake Gold Property, Québec, Canada” with an effective date of April 28, 2015, prepared in accordance with NI 43-101). The Windfall Lake gold deposit is currently one of the highest grade resource-stage gold projects in Canada. The bulk of the mineralization occurs in the Main Zone, a southwest/northeast trending zone of stacked mineralized lenses, measuring approximately 600 metres wide and at least 1,400 metres long. The deposit is well defined from surface to a depth of 500 metres and remains open along strike and at depth. Mineralization has been identified only 30 metres from surface in some areas and as deep as 870 metres in others, with significant potential to extend mineralization up and down-plunge and at depth.
