Cartier Publishes Maiden NI 43-101 Mineral Resource Estimate on the Benoist Property

Dec 18, 2020

Cartier Resources Inc. (TSX-V: ECR) ("Cartier") announces the results of the mineral resource estimate of the Pusticamica Gold Deposit of the Benoist Property, located 65 km northeast of Lebel-sur-Quévillon in the province of Québec. The estimate, completed and made available on December 16, 2020, was carried out by Ms. Christine Beausoleil P. Geo. and Claude Savard P. Geo. of InnovExplo Inc., independent qualified persons within the meaning of NI 43-101.

At this stage, it is reasonable to believe that a crown pillar, somewhere between 500,000 and 700,000 t at grades between 3.5 g/t AuEq and 4.5 g/t AuEq, may be added to the project conditional to the success of a geotechnical drilling program, a rock mechanic study and a resources estimation that follow NI 43-101 and CIM definitions and guidelines. This is based on drilling results and preliminary grade block model covering the crown pillar between 30 m to 100 m below surface. The reader should be cautioned that this potential crown pillar is not a mineral resource estimate and is conceptual in nature. There has been insufficient exploration and engineering works to define this as a mineral resource, and it is uncertain if further exploration and engineering will result in the exploration target being delineated as a mineral resource.
