Lasalle starts Radisson Drilling Program

Jul 26, 2021

LaSalle Exploration Corp. has announced that a drilling program has commenced on its 100% owned Radisson Property located in the Eeyou Istchee - James Bay Territory. The maiden diamond drill program on the Radisson Project will consist of 3,000 metres and will test a series of high priority targets including the Goldhawk, Goldfang, MM5 and Wisht mineralized zones defined by a combination of surface showings, geochemical and geophysical anomalies and favourable structures and associated shear zones (Figure 1).

The drilling program will begin on the Goldhawk and Goldfang zones, both of which occur within an extensive kilometric scale gold in bedrock structural corridor. The Goldhawk and Goldfang Zones were discovered by prospecting late in the 2020 field season. At Goldhawk, grab samples of quartz veins hosted in diorite, ranged from 1.55 grams per tonne (g/t) gold to higher grades of 36.71 g/t and 64.50 g/t gold. Grab samples of altered diorite host rock with no quartz veins and 1% to 4% fine-grained disseminated pyrite and pyrrhotite also returned high grade assays of 6.72 g/t and 9.30 g/t gold

At Goldhawk, follow-up work defined the shear zone within strongly sheared diorite over a strike length of 500 metres and remains open. This trend corresponds to a geophysical chargeability anomaly on the north edge of a magnetic high consistent with the overall structural corridor. The shear zone hosts 5 to 15%, 0.10 to 0.60 metre wide quartz veins with 1-3% disseminated pyrite and locally up to 10% pyrite and up to 5 metres in width within the sheared diorite wallrock. 

Goldfang, located 2.5 km northeast of the Goldhawk Zone on a parallel structure, returned anomalous to high-grade copper and gold from grab samples with values ranging from 1.01 g/t to 5.93 g/t gold, up to 48 g/t silver and up to 2.34% copper. The Goldfang shear zone has been extended for an additional 750 metres of strike to the west where it is overburden covered. The Goldfang trend corresponds to a moderate geophysical chargeability anomaly on the northern edge of a magnetic high.
