Probe Gold intersects 23.1 g/t Au over 3.1 metres in infill drilling at the Monique deposit, Novador Project, Quebec

23.04.2024  |  GlobeNewswire


  • New multiple high-grade gold intercepts in both expansion and infill drilling.
  • Expansion drilling within and around the Monique conceptual pit intersected significant intervals of mineralization grading up to 4.3 g/t Au over 16.0 metres; 4.2 g/t Au over 14.7 metres and 1.8 g/t Au over 34.0 metres.
  • Infill drilling continues to confirm gold zones inside and just under the conceptual pit, yielding up to 23.1 g/t Au over 3.1 metres; 8.3 g/t Au over 4.0 metres; and 1.5 g/t Au over 20.0 metres.
  • Successfully completed 28,000 metres of winter drilling at Novador in Q1 2024.
  • A 10,000-metre exploration drill program will begin in May at Novador.

TORONTO, April 23, 2024 -- Probe Gold Inc. (TSX: PRB) (OTCQB: PROBF) ("Probe" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the final set of results from the 2023 Monique drill program on its 100%-owned Novador property (the "Property") near Val-d'Or, Quebec. The results from twenty-eight (28) drill holes, totaling 10,239 metres, revealed significant high-grade mineralized intersections under and inside the modeled Monique gold zones from surface to a depth of 450 metres (refer to Figure 1 and the table of selected drill results below). The new results show impressive gold grades and thicknesses, continuing to demonstrate strong continuity and growth of gold mineralization at the Monique deposit. A new resource drill program comprised a total of 28,000 metres within and surrounding the conceptual pits of the Monique and Courvan deposits was completed in Q1 2024. Further results from this program will be released as they are received and interpreted.

David Palmer, President and CEO of Probe, states "Our 2023 Monique expansion program continues to demonstrate impressive results, and improvement, with the majority of the intersections at or above the current resource grade. With the completion of the winter resource expansion program, we will now focus on two things, the updated resource, expected later in the year, and the commencement of the 2024 exploration drilling programs. We have consolidated an exceptional land package in Val-d'Or, all of which is vastly underexplored, and all of which has tremendous exploration upside. The most recent PEA has solidified Novador as a robust development project and with our newly acquired exploration projects, Beaufour, McKenzie Break, and Croinor, all within trucking distance of the conceptual mill, we plan to initiate exploration programs to continue adding value while simultaneously de-risking the project by expediting the permitting timeline. We are also advancing our Detour project with follow-up work programs on the previously identified copper-mineralized systems at La Peltrie and larger-scale regional exploration work along our boundary with Agnico Eagle's Detour Lake Mine."

All twenty-eight (28) expansion and infill holes returned gold intercepts over 0.42 g/t Au, which is above the cut-off grade used in the current pit-constrained resource estimate. Eighteen (18) of these holes returned gold intercepts with a grade times thickness above 10.0 g/t-m Au. The Monique Gold Trend zones remain open along strike and at depth.

Gold mineralization intersected is mainly associated with deformation zones that cross the deposit at an orientation of 280° - 300° and a 75°- 80° dip to the north. This gold mineralization is defined by a network of quartz/carbonate/albite/±tourmaline veins and veinlets, along with disseminated pyrite in the altered wall rocks.

Selected drill results from hole MO-651 to 678 at the Monique deposit drilling program are, as follows:

About Probe's Novador Project

Since 2016, Probe Gold has been consolidating its land position in the highly prospective Val-d'Or East area in the province of Quebec with a district-scale land package of 685 square kilometres that represents one of the largest land holdings in the Val-d'Or mining camp. The Novador project is a sub-set of properties totaling 175 square kilometres hosting three past producing mines (Beliveau Mine, Bussiere Mine and Monique Mine) and falls along three regional mine trends. Novador is situated in a politically stable and low-cost mining environment that hosts numerous active producers and mills.

Val-d'Or properties include gold resources totaling 3,793,900 ounces in the Measured and Indicated category and 1,418,700 ounces in the Inferred category along all trends and deposits (news release dated July 19, 2023).

Qualified Person

The scientific and technical content of this press release has been prepared, reviewed, and approved by Mr. Marco Gagnon, P.Geo, Executive Vice President, who is a "Qualified Person" as defined by National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101").

Quality Control

During the last drilling program, assay samples were taken from the NQ core by sawing the drill core in half, with one-half sent to a certified commercial laboratory and the other half retained for future reference. A strict QA/QC program was applied to all samples; which includes insertion of mineralized standards and blank samples for each batch of 20 samples. The gold analyses were completed by fire-assayed with an atomic absorption finish on 50 grams of materials. Repeats were carried out by fire-assay followed by gravimetric testing on each sample containing 3.0 g/t gold or more. Total gold analyses (Metallic Sieve) were carried out on the samples which presented a great variation of their gold contents or the presence of visible gold.
