Metanor Intersects 18.9 g/t Au Over 5.6 Meters Near Surface
November 11, 2015
VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Nov 11, 2015) - Metanor Resources Inc. ("Metanor") (TSX VENTURE:MTO) is pleased to provide this update on its exploration drilling program, from the surface, in the area south of the Bachelor Mine. A drill located on an island 50 meters north of the discovery hole (MO-15-14) intersected 18.9 g/t over 5.6 meters (hole MO-15-92). This hole MO-15-92 was drilled in the same direction and parallel of the hole MO-15-94. See section below. This island was built inside the tailing area, and the holes MO-15-94, 52, 53, 54 were drilled from that island. These holes allowed intersecting the South vein over 4 to 5 meters. See plan and section below to see the interpretation to date of this zone near surface. This zone is open in all directions.
The results are in the table below:
|Hole No||From (m)||To (m)||length (m)*||Au grade capped (g/t)||Remark|
|MO-15-54||43.8||45.5||1.7||23.9||60.7 g/t uncapped|
The drilling activities are continuing in this sector, located 1 km south of the Bachelor Mine. The analysis are continuing on many samples from various holes in order to determine the orientation of one or many veins in this sector, and to extend the South zone to the east and west first, and then at depth later. Two drills are presently active on this south zone. A third drill is planned when the zones are better understood. The previous results indicate that the sector can extend over a 1 km east-west corridor (see press release published March 12th 2015).
The true width is between 20 and 95% of the core length obtained in diamond drill holes. The cap-off grade used in the analysis is 31 g/t or 1 oz Au. The samples were assayed by fire-assay at the Metanor assay lab. The quality control program of the assay results (QA QC) adopted by Metanor includes a minimum of 10% of controlled assays being conducted as well as verification by an independent external assay lab.
