Amex Exploration Inc. (TSXV: AMX) has obtained promising assay results from a number of drill holes focused on expansion drilling of the High Grade Zone (HGZ), part of the Eastern Gold Zone (EGZ) in the Perron Project in Quebec.
The results demonstrate that the HGZ is expanding along strike, outside of the main high grade central ore shoot.
- 15.52 g/t Au over 15.85 m, including 198.36 g/t Au over 1.20 m, in hole PE-22-511W3 at a vertical depth of 750 m; and
- 11.27 g/t Au over 11.00 m, including 203.72 g/t Au over 0.50 m, in hole PE-22-511W2 at a vertical depth of 785 m
As part of its resource definition programme, Amex has been focused on expansion of known zones of mineralisation through much of the 2022 drilling programme. This drilling targeted the margins of the known gold mineralisation outside of the main “core” of the HGZ that regularly delivers multi-ounce assay results.
These results from the HGZ expansion are definitively adding significant tonnage and potential ounces to the overall ore zone. Of particular interest are the results from holes PE-22-511W2 and PE-22-511W3, which returned very high assay values in an area that low grade mineralisation was expected. This is highly encouraging for exploration as it shows that high grade lenses exist outside of the main mineralised zone.
“The expansion drilling programme on the HGZ is going very well. I was very excited seeing the strongly mineralized core especially in the two highlight holes,” Executive Chairman, Jacques “Trottier, said.
In addition to the high-grade holes, the lower grade mineralisation that we have been intercepting on the fringes of the system is adding significant strike and tonnage to the system which should enhance the future resource on the HGZ.”
