Bullion Gold to acquire up to 100% of Bousquet Property, Abitibi

Mar 8, 2021

Bullion Gold Resources Corp. has entered into an Option Agreement with Vantex Resources Ltd.  to acquire up to 100% of the Bousquet Property  located on the historic Cadillac Break.

The property consists of two claim blocks totalling 70 claims covering 1515.55 ha. The Bousquet property is in the Abitibi Region of the Province of Québec, about 30 kilometers west of Rouyn-Noranda.

The Bousquet Property is underlain by meta-sedimentary rocks of the Cadillac, Timiskaming and Pontiac Groups and from volcanic flows and intrusives of the Piche Group. The Cadillac-Larder Lake Break crosses the property for 2.5 km in the northern part of the Normar Block. There are several gold mines found along or adjacent to the Cadillac-Larder Lake Break that cuts across the Bousquet Lake Property. Between 1926 and 2020, in excess of twenty (20) mines have produced over 25 million ounces of gold along the Cadillac Break within the Bousquet-Cadillac district. The Cadillac mining camp is characterized by three types of mineralization related to distinct gold-bearing geological settings: gold-bearing massive sulphide lenses (Bousquet 2 and La Ronde mines), gold-rich polymetallic veins (Doyon and Mouska mines) and auriferous veins associated with regional E-W trending faults (Lapa deposit).

A strong gold mineralized system was discovered in the southern portion of the Bousquet Lake Property. Three gold showings, Decoeur, Paquin East and Paquin West and Calder-Bousquet, were discovered in the early exploration work (1932-1945) on the property. These showings have probably been formed in the same mineralizing episode within regional E-W trending faults. On the Decoeur showing, grades of 8.40 g/t Au over 1.77 m, 4.35 g/t Au over 4.83 and 4.04 g/t Au over 1.52 m were intersected in historical drill holes. On the Paquin showings, 3.73 g/t Au over 5.49 m, 5.91 g/t Au over 3.02 m and 6.84 and 6.53 g/t Au over 2.44 m were intersected in historical drilling. An intercept of 8.09 g/t Au over 2.0 m was also intersected on the Calder-Bousquet gold occurrence.

The gold mineralization is located in a fold zone above the 250m level. Strong possibilities exist that other folds from the same deformation exist laterally or at depth. The Blackfly group of claims has been little explored in the past due to the paucity of outcrops but the use of new geophysical methods can generate good and valid targets from the deposit models of this high quality location within one of the most prolific world class gold belt.

Gold mineralization was also found in a 2003 drill program in the felsic intrusion (called tonalite) within the Cadillac fault zone. The intrusive is found between two talc-chlorite schist units of the Piche Group. Hole TMN-03-31 intersected 4.75 g/t Au over 1.5 m in quartz veins, veinlets, and zones of silicification and hole TMN-03-08 intersected 1.42 g/t Au over 1.5 m and 0.71 g/t Au over 5.7 m gold also in the tonalite.

“We are incredibly pleased with this option agreement, which positions us strategically on the Cadillac Fault, a globally recognized gold producing environment. We were attracted by the Property due to the interesting historical showings (Paquin Est, Paquin Ouest and Decoeur) and by the fact that these showings remain open both laterally and at depth. To our knowledge, no depth survey (more than 250 meters) has been carried out on the property.” Said Jonathan Hamel, President and CEO of Bullion Gold Resources Corp.
