Osisko drilling returns High Grade at Lynx

Apr 9, 2021

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.

Significant new analytical results presented below include 78 intercepts in 46 drill holes (12 from surface, 22 from underground) and 12 wedges. The infill intercepts are located inside defined February 2021 mineral resource estimate (“MRE”) blocks (see Osisko news release dated February 17, 2021). The expansion intercepts are located outside the February 2021 mineral resource estimate (“MRE”) and either expand resource wireframes or are located in a defined zone or corridor but do not yet correlate to a specific wireframe.

Osisko Chief Executive Officer John Burzynski commented: “Once again the drilling in the Lynx area delivers both inside and outside of the February 2021 MRE blocks. Further, expansion drilling in the Triple Lynx corridor continues to provide strong targets for growth as demonstrated by Hole OSK-W-20-2371-W1, one of our top results today. As we noted in our April 7, 2021 PEA update, ongoing drilling is showing great potential to see further increases in the already strong economic base case of the Windfall deposit.”

Selected high-grade intercepts include: 369 g/t Au over 3.5 metres in OSK-W-21-2369-W3; 155 g/t Au over 3.0 metres and 45.7 g/t Au over 2.1 metres in WST-21-0670; 129 g/t Au over 3.2 metres in OSK-W-20-2252-W11, 144 g/t Au over 2.5 metres in WST-21-0657; 123 g/t Au over 2.4 metres in OSK-W-20-2371-W1, 78.4 g/t Au over 3.1 metres in OSK-W-21-2480, 70.0 g/t Au over 2.6 metres in WST-20-0568, 76.4 g/t Au over 2.2 metres in WST-20-0578, and 52.6 g/t Au over 2.3 metres in OSK-W-20-2420.
