Radisson intersects 110.97 g/t Au over 2.50 m at historic O’Brien Mine

Dec 1, 2020

Radisson Mining Resources Inc. is announcing significant high-grade gold intercepts from the ongoing 60,000 m exploration drill program at its O’Brien gold project located along the Larder-Lake-Cadillac Break, halfway between Rouyn-Noranda and Val-d’Or.

“We are very pleased with results from our ongoing drill program that continue to validate our litho-structural model and highlight the significant resource upside at O’Brien. Our work program so far has been focused within a 1 km along strike to the east of the historic O’Brien Mine. We believe there is significantly more upside to be unlocked as we systematically step out to drill test more than the 5 km of strike length that we control along the prolific Cadillac Break.” commented Mario Bouchard, Chief Executive Officer.

Drill results highlight the potential for resource growth to the east in the first mineralized trend (300 m east of the old O’Brien Mine) near the lower boundary of current resources 

  • Hole OB-20-167 returned 110.97 g/t Au over 2.50 m core length (vertical depth of 600 m) including separate intervals of 16.40 g/t over 1.00 m and 371.00 g/t over 0.70 m, and within a broader mineralized interval (see figure 1)

    • The drill hole intersected mineralized structures near the eastern and lower boundary of current resources in the first mineralized trend, including visible gold showings at 638.00 m and 639.30 m core length (See photo)
    • This intercept was obtained close to historical intercepts of 1920.00 g/t Au over 0.21 m and 101.31 g/t over 0.61 m
    • As previously indicated, assays are also pending for OB-20-164 and OB-20-170, which intersected mineralized structures with visible gold above the high-grade intercept in OB-20-167 
      • OB-20-164 intersected visible gold in the targeted structures, 50 m above and to the west of OB-20-167
      • OB-20-170 intersected visible gold in the targeted structures, approximately 40 m to the east of OB-20-167
    • Results demonstrate the potential to meaningfully expand resources in the first mineralized trend to the east and at depth.
