Wallbridge rolls out more encouraging drill numbers

May 20, 2020

The drills are turning and the results keep coming up positive for Wallbridge Mining as it continues to build an impressive set of drill results at its 100% owned Fenelon property in Quebec.  

Wallbridge announced another set of results this morning, the second set in two days, that continue to outline strong gold mineralization over a 600 by 500 metre area within the Area 51 vein network. That zone occurs in the hanging-wall to the Tabasco-Cayenne shear system.

"We continue to expand the Area 51 gold system, both east (now on section 10425) and West (now on section 9825) with strong intersection both near surface and also at depth in close proximity to the Tabasco zones. Geophysical information and initial drill results by Balmoral indicate that Area 51 mineralization may extend far into the surrounding Balmoralground and we are looking forward to discovering the extensions of this gold system on the soon-to-be consolidated land package with drilling planned to start up there this summer," stated Attila Péntek, Vice President, Exploration of Wallbridge. "The geologic interpretation and 3D modeling carried out by our geology team, working remotely during this temporary suspension due to COVID-19, has provided us with a much-improved understanding of the controls on gold mineralization in the Fenelon gold system. This will enable us to better target these zones and evaluate potential mining scenarios."

The results announced today continue to show the grade characteristics typical of the Jérémie Pluton-hosted Area 51 veins, allowing the future evaluation of various potential mining scenarios: 

1.  Potentially open pit bulk mineable intercepts in t he 1-2 g/t range, including 1.70 g/t Au over 58.50 metres in FA-20-116, 1.01 g/t Au over 82.40 metres in FA-20-113 and 2.06 g/t Au over 38.50 metres in FA-20-115; 

2.  Potentially underground bulk mineable intervals in the 2-10 g/t range, including 5.77 g/t Au over 14.85 metres in FA-20-116, 9.28 g/t Au over 6.50 metres in FA-20-115, and 7.18 g/t Au over 6.00 metres in 19-915-020;

3.  Potentially underground mineable intervals in the > 10 g/t range, including 19.55 g/t Au over 4.10 metres in FA-20-107, 307.74 g/t Au over 0.50 metre in FA-20-118, 121.00 g/t Au over 0.60 metre in FA-20-128 and 78.21 g/t Au over 0.70 metre in 19-0915-025;
