Osisko Intersects 64.3 g/t Au Over 2.3 Metres at Windfall

15.02.2017  |  Marketwired

Shallow High-Grade Mineralization Intersected on 400 Metre Step-Out in Lynx Zone


MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Feb. 15, 2017) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Osisko Mining Inc. (TSX:OSK) ("Osisko" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce new results from the ongoing drill program at its 100% owned Windfall Lake gold project located in Urban Township, Québec. The current 400,000 metre drill program combines definition drilling above the Red Dog intrusion ("Red Dog"), expansion drilling above and below Red Dog, expansion drilling to the NE of the main deposit, and exploration drilling on the greater deposit and Urban-Barry Project area. Twelve drills are currently active on the Windfall deposit, at the Black Dog discovery, and on the greater project area. Five additional drills will be added by the end of this month. New analytical results from one drill hole focused on expansion and infill drilling in the Lynx Corridor are reported in this release, with significant assay results presented in the table below.

Significant new results include: 64.3 g/t Au over 2.3 metres and 19.4 g/t Au over 2.0 metres in OSK-W-16-761. Maps showing hole location and full analytical results are available at www.osiskomining.com.

Lynx Corridor

OSK-W-16-761, located on the 400 metre step out drill fence from the main Windfall deposit, tested the up-dip extension of the Lynx Footwall Zone, 50 metres below surface. The hole intersected 64.3 g/t Au over 2.3 metres (71.3 g/t Au over 2.3 metres uncut) and 19.4 g/t Au over 2.0 metres in a strongly silicified magmatic breccia containing 1-3% pyrite stringers and disseminations. This intercept is located 87 metres above previously reported OSK-W-16-755 (which returned 8.12 g/t Au over 2.0 metres) and 180 metres west of previously reported OSK-W-16-760 (which intersected 42.7 g/t Au over 9 metres cut, 95.3 g/t Au uncut over 9.0 metres at approximately 200 metres vertical depth in main Lynx Zone). The main Lynx Zone is located to the SE of this drill hole collar and was not tested by OSK-W-16-761.

Qualified Person

The scientific and technical content of this news release has been reviewed, prepared and approved by Mr. Jean-Philippe Desrochers, Ph.D., P.Geo. Senior Project Manager of the Windfall Lake gold project, who is a "Qualified Person" as defined by National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101").

Quality Control and Reporting Protocols

True widths of the new exploration intercepts below Red Dog reported in this press release have yet to be determined. Additional drilling is planned for the immediate area which will enable the true width determination. True widths of intercepts in the zones above the Red Dog are estimated at 65-80% of the reported core length intervals. Assays are uncut except where indicated, and calculated intervals are reported over a minimum length of 2 metres using a lower cutoff of 3 g/t Au. All NQ core assays reported were obtained by either 1 kilogram whole rock metallic screen/fire assay or standard 50 gram fire-assaying with AA or gravimetric finish at ALS Laboratories in Val d'Or, Québec or Sudbury, Ontario. The 1 kilogram metallic screen assay method is selected by the geologist when samples contain coarse gold or present a higher percentage of pyrite than surrounding intervals. All samples are also analyzed for multi-elements, including silver, using an Aqua Regia-ICP-AES method at ALS laboratories. Drill program design, Quality Assurance/Quality Control and interpretation of results is performed by qualified persons employing a Quality Assurance/Quality Control program consistent with NI 43-101 and industry best practices. Standards and blanks are included with every 20 samples for Quality Assurance/Quality Control purposes by the Corporation as well as the lab. Approximately 5% of sample pulps are sent to secondary laboratories for check assays.

About the Windfall Lake Gold Deposit

The Windfall Lake gold deposit is located between Val-d'Or and Chibougamau in the Abitibi region of Québec, Canada. The current mineral resource comprises 2,762,000 tonnes at 8.42 g/t Au (748,000 ounces) in the indicated category and 3,512,000 tonnes at 7.62 g/t Au (860,000 ounces) in the inferred category (sourced from a technical report dated June 10, 2015 entitled "Preliminary Economic Assessment of the Windfall Lake Gold Property, Québec, Canada" with an effective date of April 28, 2015, prepared in accordance with NI 43-101). The Windfall Lake gold deposit is currently one of the highest grade resource-stage gold projects in Canada. The bulk of the mineralization occurs in the Main Zone, a southwest/northeast trending zone of stacked mineralized lenses, measuring approximately 600 metres wide and at least 1,400 metres long. The deposit is well defined from surface to a depth of 500 metres, and remains open along strike and at depth. Mineralization has been identified only 30 metres from surface in some areas and as deep as 870 metres in others, with significant potential to extend mineralization up and down-plunge and at depth.
