9 May 2019
Osisko Metals Incorporated is pleased to announce additional assay results from 161 drill holes completed within the Central Zone (M-67, L-65, M-6263, O-53, and M-48 areas) in the Pine Point Mining Camp (“PPMC”). Highlights include drill hole O53-18-PP-007 that intersected 20.08% zinc and 8.73% lead over 12.54 metres, hole O53-18-PP-020 that intersected 12.98% zinc and 2.71% lead over 27.00 metres, and hole M67-18-PP-030 that intersected 7.75% zinc and 1.79% lead over 21.68 metres. Other high-grade intersections are noted in Table 1 below. (See Central Zone Map 1 and Map 2).
All intersections are located between 20 to 94 metre vertical depths. Reported results occur within flat-lying tabular style mineralization with the exception of the O-53 area where prismatic style mineralization is present. Drillhole composites and location details are provided in Tables 2 & 3.
Jeff Hussey, President & CEO of Osisko Metals, commented: “Definition drill results continue to match or exceed what we were expecting in the known deposits. As we receive the remaining results, our team is updating the information used in the 2018 Mineral Resource Estimate. This will lead to an updated MRE in the second half of 2019. Currently we are focused on planning our 2019 exploration program in search of additional mineralization to add to the resource base, and particularly for higher-grade prismatic style deposits.”
