Osisko expansion drilling returns high grade at Lynx

Jul 19, 2020

More high-grade for Osisko Mining at Windfall project in Quebec. The company has published new drilling results from the ongoing definition and expansion drill program at its 100% owned Windfall gold project located in the Abitibi greenstone belt, Urban Township, Eeyou Istchee James Bay, Québec.

Twenty-two drills are active at Windfall (including 16 on surface and six underground), all currently focused on the Lynx deposit.

Osisko President and Chief Executive Officer John Burzynski commented: “The Lynx system remains open both towards surface and down plunge, and we expect to see additions to the Lynx resource by the end of the year.  Clearly the highest-grade portion of our Windfall deposit, Lynx continues to impress and provide good upside to the scale of our growing resource.  Lynx gave important additions to our February 2020 resource update (see Osisko news release dated February 19, 2020), and we expect to see that pattern continue.”

Significant new analytical results are presented below and include 59 intercepts in 15 drill holes, 22 wedges and 3 extensions of previously drilled holes.  All intercepts reported below are located outside the February 2020 mineral resource estimate wireframes and represent expansions of known mineralized zones.

Selected high-grade intercepts from the new results include: OSK-W-20-2266-W1, 30 metres up-plunge from wireframe Lynx_363, returned 34.8 g/t Au over 10.4 metresOSK-W-20-2268, 70 metres up-plunge from wireframe Lynx_361, returned 26.1 g/t Au over 5.3 metres; OSK-W-20-2100-W6, 15 metres vertically towards surface from wireframe Lynx_371returned 59.7 g/t Au over 2.2 metres; and OSK-W-20-2250-W1, 48 metres up-plunge from wireframe Lynx_372, returned 42.6 g/t Au over 2.2 metres.
