Step-out drilling intersects 45.86 g/t Au over 2.10 m, 21.29 g/t over 2.00 m and 17.90 g/t over 2.15 m in potential high grade trend east of old O’Brien Mine

Radisson Mining Resources Inc. is pleased to announce 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 in Quebec.

“Drill results from the O’Brien Project continue to validate our litho-structural model and demonstrate the potential for resource growth at depth and laterally along strike. Prior drilling demonstrated the potential for two high grade mineralized trends, located approximately 300 m and 600 m respectively to the east of and bearing similarities to structures historically mined at the O’Brien Mine. Our efforts to step-out further to the east have been rewarded with multiple high-grade intercepts including 45.86 g/t over 2.10 m, 21.29 g/t over 2.00 m and 17.90 g/t over 2.15 m that appear to highlight a third high-grade mineralised trend in a relatively untested area approximately 900 m to the east of the old mine. Drilling so far has traced mineralization down to 500 m vertical depth, with the zone remaining open at depth and laterally. 

Our exploration efforts to date have been limited to a strike length of approximately 1 km, a relatively small part of the 6 km prospective strike length along the prolific Cadillac Break. While we are impressed by results so far, we are even more excited at the prospect of leveraging our litho-structural model to target a repeat of our success over a much larger area that extends approximately 3.0 km to the east and now, post the New Alger acquisition, 3 km to the west of the old O’Brien Mine, historically the highest grade gold mine in Quebec.

Results released so far represent approximately half of our planned 60,000 m program. We are well funded to expand our program to up to 75,000 m, permitting additional drilling into 2021. With three rigs in operation, we eagerly look forward to additional results as we systematically step out to grow resources laterally and at depth,” commented Mario Bouchard, Chief Executive Officer.
