Amex drills 102.07 g/t gold over 6.10 metres at Perron near Rouyn-Noranda

Sep 7, 2021

Amex Exploration Inc. has announced the results from a multitude of drill holes focused on expansion and definition drilling of the High Grade Zone (HGZ). 

Today's results are focused on on-strike expansion as well as definition drilling of the High Grade Zone as the Company works towards its maiden resource on the Perron Project. A complete list of results is available in Table 1 and presented in Figures 2, 3, and 4. Photos of visible gold in selected drill holes are presented in Figure 5. In addition to the results detailed below, Amex is awaiting results on over 17,359 samples at three labs from holes targeting the HGZ and Denise, as well as regional exploration drilling. 

Jacques Trottier, PhD, Executive Chairman of Amex Exploration commented, "I am very excited with today's results for several reasons. Firstly, we have drilled the highest grade hole at depth to date with hole PE-21-386W1 returning 102.07 grams per tonne of gold over 6.10 metres. We can now trace the high grade core of the HGZ over 800 vertical metres which is a very significant development in the expansion of this important zone. Also, it clearly demonstrates the zone is richer at depth and wider along strike. In addition to this very high-grade drill hole, our shallower drilling on the Western portion of the HGZ has significantly expanded the 'bonanza' area of the HGZ proving the super high grade core is continuous."

Trottier adds, "The HGZ is becoming one of the richest single gold zones of all the Canadian Archean orogenic gold deposits ever discovered. Almost every hole we drill confirms expansion, both laterally and vertically and significantly increases its overall grade and gold content per vertical meter. In addition to this, we recently reported a new copper rich VMS zone. Follow us closely, we are delivering and awaiting results from 18 holes which contain visible gold."
