Osisko Windfall Infills With High-Grade in Multiple Zones

Mar 4, 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.

Today’s infill results are from the southwestern areas of the deposit including Zone 27, Underdog, Caribou, F11, Mallard, and Bobcat. Osisko Chief Executive Officer John Burzynski commented: “Infill drilling continues to deliver impressive grade and width results from the Windfall deposit.”

The table below contains resource definition infill intercepts located inside defined February 2021 mineral resource estimate blocks (see Osisko news release dated February 17, 2021). Significant new analytical results are presented below, including 73 intercepts in 33 drill holes (24 from surface, 9 from underground) and 10 wedges.

Selected intercepts include: 35.7 g/t Au over 9.8 metres70.7 g/t Au over 2.0 metres, and 50.4 g/t Au over 3.6 metres in OSK-W-20-2407; 65.6 g/t Au over 4.2 metres in OSK-W-20-2390; 60.8 g/t Au over 2.0 metres in OSK-W-20-2405; 39.0 g/t Au over 3.0 metres in OSK-W-20-2400; 55.2 g/t Au over 2.0 metres in OSK-W-20-2399 and 18.9 g/t Au over 5.5 metres in OSK-W-20-2354-W2.

Caribou Zone
Mineralization most commonly occurs in gold-bearing pyrite stockworks as well as semi-massive pyrite replacement zones associated with phyllic alteration (sericite-pyrite ± silica) with sulphides, pyrite dominated with minor chalcopyrite and sphalerite ranging from trace to up to 20%, and local visible gold. Mineralization is hosted in rhyolites or mafic-intermediate volcanics frequently at or near faults or the contact with felsic porphyritic intrusions.

Mineralization most commonly occurs in gold-bearing quartz-pyrite (± tourmaline) veins and as disseminated and stringer semi-massive to massive pyrite with minor sphalerite, chalcopyrite and molybdenite associated with strong sericite and silica alteration. Mineralization is hosted along the intrusive contacts of a three-phase composite felsic porphyritic unit which cross-cuts felsic and mafic volcanic sequences.

Mineralization is hosted in sheared andesites with carbonate replacement or quartz veining and occurs as quartz ± ankerite veinlets or in shear zones as replacement, characterised by trace to 10% pyrite with local visible gold. Alteration is dominated by sericite-fuchsite-tourmaline-pyrite.

Mineralization most commonly occurs in gold-bearing quartz-pyrite veins controlled by northeast trending faults and shears and to a lesser extent in minor crustiform quartz-tourmaline-ankerite-pyrite veins and pyrite replacement zones and stockwork. Mineralization is hosted in sheared mafic volcanics, rhyolites near faults, or at the contact with felsic porphyritic intrusions.

Mineralization is hosted in sheared mafic volcanics with felsic porphyritic intrusions and occurs as veins associated with sericite-pyrite ± silica ± chlorite alteration and contains pyrite ranging from trace to 30% and local visible gold.
