Expansion Drilling Adds New High-Grade for Osisko's James Bay Project

Feb 24, 2021

“Today’s expansion drill results are a strong confirmation that many of the zones across the deposit remain open to growth," said Osisko Chief Executive Officer John Burzynski. 

"The results presented below fall outside the wireframes in the recently published mineral resource estimate (“MRE”), and OSK-W-20-2391 in particular extends Triple Lynx 150 metres from the closest MRE block.”

Osisko Mining Inc. is providing new analytical results from the ongoing drill program at its 100% owned Windfall gold project located in the Abitibi greenstone belt, Urban Township, Eeyou Istchee James Bay, Québec.

Approximately 200,000 metres remain in the drill program, focused on the Lynx portion of the deposit. Osisko expects to complete resource drilling by the fall of 2021.

Significant new analytical results presented below include 145 intercepts in 56 drill holes (31 from surface, 25 from underground) and 33 wedges.

Selected intercepts include: 141 g/t Au over 3.5 metres in WST-20-0524; 74.9 g/t Au over 2.3 metres in WST-20-0547; 57.8 g/t Au over 2.3 metres in OSK-W-20-2275-W4; 13.3 g/t Au over 6.4 metres in WST-20-0478; 26.0 g/t Au over 3.2 metres in OSK-W-20-2354-W1; 31.4 g/t Au over 2.4 metres in OSK-W-20-2391; 25.9 g/t Au over 2.9 metres in WST-20-0570; 15.9 g/t Au over 4.7 metresin WST-20-0346; 16.9 g/t Au over 4.2 metres in OSK-W-20-2354; and 24.4 g/t Au 2.9 metres in OSK-W-20-2369.
