Oct 6, 2020

QMX Gold Corporation is increasing its drilling plans to more than 45,000 metres, from 35,000m, by year end, and is pleased to provide an update on its current exploration activities. QMX continues to be extremely active with four drill rigs on three different projects located on its nearly 200 km2 Val d’Or Camp property located east of the city of Val d’Or in the prolific Abitibi Greenstone Belt in Québec.

Highlights include:

  • At least 45,000m will be drilled before the end of 2020, up from 35,000m.
  • New 9,000m exploration program west of New Louvre and to the south of the Bonnefond deposit.
  • A 4,000m deep exploration program on the Bonnefond intrusive to follow up on recently released deep target zone.
  • 8,500m to be drilled on the River Target – Expanding the initial 5,500mprogram. 
  • Commenced 3,000m reconnaissance drilling program on the Poulmaque area. 
  • Planning a 35,000m winter drilling program on the East Zone focusing on the Bevcon intrusive and the 5km trend between Bonnefond and Bevcon.

We are delighted to report our recent exploration successes,” says Dr. Andreas Rompel, Vice President Exploration of QMX, “and are looking forward to our increased exploration program for the rest of this anomalous year. We have identified the targets and designed the programs to both expand Bonnefond, our flagship project, and add more substance to our other target areas.’’

Following on very successful results throughout 2020, QMX is increasing its drilling plans for the year to over 45,000m, from 35,000m. Focus will remain on growing the Bonnefond deposit on the eastern side of the property and drilling the River and Poulmaque targets on the Bourlamaque Zone.
