QMX Gold continues to expand Bonnefond Deposit near Val D'Or

Sep 17, 2020

QMX Gold Corporation has released assay results from seventeen drill holes on the Bonnefond Deposit. These results expand the Bonnefond footprint both to the East and West of the intrusive. The Bonnefond Deposit is located in the Val d’Or East Zone of QMX’s extensive land package in Val d’Or, Quebec.

Following on DDH 17315-20-121 (Press Release; August 18, 2020), which set out the depth potential at Bonnefond, these assay results indicate the Bonnefond footprint is also expanding to the west and to the east. The drilling campaign to the north of the intrusive was recently completed (assays pending) and QMX is currently drilling Bonnefond at depth in the intrusive and to the south of the deposit.

Highlights include (Grades are uncut; lengths are measured along the holes, Table 1):

In the Bonnefond intrusive:

  • DDH 17315-20-111 returned 1.70 g/t Au over 78.5 m, including 9.48 g/t Au over 6.0 m
  • DDH 17315-20-114 returned 1.18 g/t Au over 136.2 m 
  • DDH 17315-20-128A returned 1.28 g/t Au over 50.4 m; 2.31 g/t Au over 22.5m and 40.52 g/t Au over 2.0m

East of the Bonnefond intrusion: 

  • DDH 17315-20-100 returned 3.98 g/t Au over 15.0m, including 4.91 g/t Au over 4.5m in a shear zone.  

West of the Bonnefond intrusion: 

  • Extends the shear zone system on a 200m strike west of the intrusive (Figure 1)
  • DDH 17315-18-068-Ext returned 62.44 g/t Au over 1.0m in a shear zone
  • DDH 17315-20-123 returned 3.44 g/t Au over 6.0m in a shear zone
  • DDH 17315-20-124 returned 27.20 g/t Au over 1.5m in a shear zone

North of the Bonnefond intrusion: 

  • DDH 17315-19-084-Ext returned 6.43g/t Au over 3.0m in a shear zone. 

“We are very happy to report the western extension of mineralization in connection with the shear zones already encountered within the Bonnefond intrusion”, says Dr. Andreas Rompel, Vice President Exploration, “Bonnefond continues to expand in all directions including at depth. As we await assay results from our recently completed drill program to the north, we have started drilling the gap to the South, between Bonnefond and New Louvre.”
