Kenorland intersects 19.50 g/t Au over 6.65m at Frotet Project, Quebec

Jul 11, 2022

Kenorland Minerals Ltd. (TSXV: KLD) (OTCQX: NWRCF) is pleased to announce final drill results from the 2022 winter drill program at the Frotet Project, located in northern Quebec and held under joint venture with Sumitomo Metal Mining Canada Ltd. Assays from the remaining 5 of 25 drill holes completed, including 2,840 meters of the 10,880 meter program are reported herein. The Company is also pleased to provide an update on its summer drill program and exploration activities currently underway at the Project.

Drill highlights include the following: 

  • 22RDD133:  6.65m at 19.50 g/t Au incl. 1.06m at 98.34 g/t Au at R6 (new vein discovery)
  • 22RDD135: 1.70m at 25.00 g/t Au incl. 0.45m at 87.00 g/t Au at R1
  • 22RDD135: 5.00m at 5.46 g/t Au incl. 0.90m at 21.39 g/t Au at R8 (new vein discovery)
  • Zach Flood, CEO of Kenorland Minerals states, "The drill program completed in the first quarter was a massive success. The first holes to intersect the newly discovered veins parallel to the R1 structure, including R5, R6, R7 and R8, are initially returning very impressive grades and widths such as today's announcement of 22RDD133, which reported 19.50 g/t Au over 6.65m. Results from these new vein discoveries are easily comparable to some of the best results from the R1 structure, which we've been drilling off since the initial discovery in 2020. This is great news for the Joint Venture and we look forward to further results from the recently completed summer drill campaign, which was largely focussed on following up these discoveries."

    Discussion of Results

    The reported 5 drill holes (2,840m) are the final results from the 2022 winter drill program at Regnault. Drilling was designed to expand the strike extent along the R2 and R4 trends, testing the down dip extents of the R1 mineralised structure, and explore for additional mineralised structures immediately to the south of R1.

    Along the R1 trend, highlights include hole 22RDD135 which stepped 135m east from 22RDD129 (4.00m at 5.72 g/t Au*) and intersected 1.70m at 25.00 g/t Au incl. 0.45m at 87.00 g/t Au. Hole 22RDD135 is the most eastern drill hole along the R1 trend, demonstrating the potential for continued extension of high-grade mineralisation. Drilling has successfully extended mineralisation at R1 by over 100m to the east for a known strike length of 950m and to depths of 400m below surface remaining open along strike and at depth.

    Directly to the south of the R1 drilling discovered multiple sub-parallel mineralised structures including R5, R6, R7 and R8, which have returned multiple high-grade intercepts. Hole 22RDD133 stepped 160m to the west of 22RDD121 (5.70m at 8.10 g/t Au*) and intersected 6.65m at 19.50 g/t Au incl. 1.06m at 98.34 g/t Au. Hole 22RDD135 returned 5.00m at 5.46 g/t Au incl. 0.90m at 21.39 g/t Au, a 130m step-out to the east from 22RDD129 (0.31m at 21.80 g/t Au*) and 170m step-out to the east up dip from 22RDD121 (5.70m at 8.10 g/t Au*)The discovery of these additional mineralised structures indicates the potential for further sub-parallel structures at depth in the Regnault system. These results extend the strike length of mineralisation along the newly discovered structures to 400m, and to 450m at depth remaining open along strike and at depth.
