Osisko Metals to begin drilling gravity targets at Pine Point and provides corporate update
18 November 2019
Osisko Metals Incorporated is pleased to announce that drilling will begin to targeting sixty (60) initial prismatic-style targets have been chosen based on processing and analyses of the 2019 airborne gravity gradiometry (“AGG”) survey data in conjunction with LiDAR features and newly-interpreted structural controls on mineralization.
These targets are specifically identified on criteria that are indicative of prismatic mineralization based on responses over known, in-situ, high grade prismatic deposits as measured by ground-based gravity surveys used as a control for the AGG system. The targets are distributed both within, and between, mineralized trends with many occurring in very sparsely drilled areas within the East Mill, Central and North Zone.
Jeff Hussey, President & CEO of Osisko Metals, commented: “During the work leading up to the release of our 2019 MRE (see press release dated November 13, 2019) outlining 52.4Mt grading 6.47% ZnEq, we completed the first part of our interpretation of the airborne gravity gradiometry survey. The start of this phase of the exploration campaign marks an exciting time for Osisko Metals as we leverage tools never available to previous operators to potentially make new discoveries.”
