Voyageur Intersects An Average True Width 20.37m across 60m of Strike For The Barite Breccia Vein at Frances Creek

28.09.2017  |  GlobeNewswire
CALGARY, Sept. 28, 2017 - Voyageur Minerals Ltd. (TSXV:VM) (the “Company”), is pleased to announce that it has continued to intersect a large barite breccia vein in 100% of the drilling to date.

The latest lab results show an average width of 20.37m across 60m of strike with a weighted average of 30.57% BaSO4 along the explored portion of the breccia vein.

The highlights of the latest drill results:
- FC17-09 intersected 36.03m true width at 19.47% BaSO4.
- FC17-10 intersected 11.86m true width at 60.32% BaSO4.
- FC17-11 intersected 23.88m true width at 27.05% BaSO4.
- FC17-12 intersected 18.7m true width at 37.39% BaSO4.
- FC17-13 intersected 22.88m true width at 23.94% BaSO4.
- FC17-14 intersected 14m true width at 38.41% BaSO4.
- FC17-15 intersected 15.22m true width at 37.65% BaSO4.

The drill intercept from FC17-13, included an interval from 29.6 – 30.1m that assayed 99.09% BaSO4, which is exceptionally pure and is pharmaceutical grade.

To date Voyageur has completed 17 drill holes with further assays pending, drilling is on-going, with a second shift is being added to maximize drilling results.

The next phase of drilling will be to continue on strike, with goals of adding resources and connecting the A and B zone as one structure. An NI 43-101 report will be initiated at the completion of this next phase of drilling. Drill holes FC17-09, 10, 11 and 12 were drilled from the same drill station and were fanned across the strike of the zone. Drill hole’s FC17-13, 14 and 15 were drilled at a second location 25m down strike and 15m lower in elevation. Drilling is designed to fan across the strike to build the initial near surface resources from surface to 60m depths.

The crystalline barite is consistent throughout the breccia and a pure barite sample from drill hole FC17-15 29.6m-30.1m assayed at 99.09% BaSO4. This reflects the purity of the barite matrix within the breccia. Assays were performed at Loring Labs of Calgary, AB., an ISO – 9001 -2017 accredited commercial laboratory.

The barite breccia vein contains crystalline barite with grades up to 99.49% BaSO4 in the breccia matrix. Testing to date indicates that the crystalline barite is exceptionally pure and may qualify for the pharmaceutical market. Additional select samples will be taken from the core of other drill holes to test the purity of the crystalline barite throughout the vein.

Voyageur’s management believes that a high quality predominately crystalline barite product can be produced from the Frances Creek Vein by gravity separation milling. Future metallurgical testing will be conducted to test management’s theory.
