Pistol Bay Commences Drilling in Confederation Lake

 

 

 

 

 

Pistol Bay Mining Inc. (TSX-V:PST) (Frankfurt:OQS2) (OTC Pink:SLTFF) is pleased to announce that it has commenced its planned 3,500-metre diamond drilling program on its 51,000-acre Confederation Lake property in northwestern Ontario.

 

 

The first three drill holes, of approximately 500 metres each, will test the Arrow Zone, and the core will be used for preliminary metallurgical testing.  The Arrow Zone is a volcanogenic massive sulphide deposit, which was the subject of a 43-101 report in 2017 that presented an inferred mineral resource of 2,100,000 tonnes grading 5.78% zinc, 0.72% copper, 0.60 grams per tonne (g/t) gold and 19.5 g/t silver. (8.42 Zn.Eq.)

 

 

Following is a selection of drill intersections from previous diamond drill holes on the Arrow Zone by Noranda Exploration in 1997-1998 and Tribute Minerals Inc. in 2004-2007.

Following drilling on the Arrow Zone, the drill will move to the Fredart Zone, which was drilled in the 1960s and contained copper mineralization of VMS type with associated silver values.  Only the first four holes were assayed for gold.
