Northern Superior Resources announced that drilling has extended the previously announced new gold discovery at Lac Surprise by 200 metres to the west with the announcement of a second discovery hole. Hole LCS19-005(ext) recorded an intersection of 1.55g/t gold equivalent over 44.9m, including 3.82g/t AuEq over 15m. This discovery hole appears to be on strike and only 1.6 kilometres from IAMGOLD/Vanstar's westernmost reported step-out drillhole
Newly discovered gold zone extended by 200m along strike to the west with hole LCS19-005(ext) recording 1.44 g/t gold and 1.08 g/t silver or 1.55g/t AuEq over 44.9m, including 3.60 g/t gold and 1.92 g/t silver or 3.82g/t AuEq over 15m (Tables 1, 2 and 3);
On November 5, 2020 (see Northern Superior press release), the new gold zone was discovered by hole LCS20-13 recording 1.02 g/t gold and 3.92 g/t silver or 1.07 g/t AuEq over 35.5m with a high-grade interval of 7.70 g/t gold and 38.96 g/t silver or 8.22 g/t AuEq over 2.6m;
In hole LCS19-005(ext) the host material and associated properties are very similar to that reported for Nelligan including:
i) Host material consists of coarser clastic materials (hole LCS19-005ext. consists mainly of greywacke);
ii) Moderate- strong Pyrite content varying between 3 to 6% mostly in thin dissemination, fracture, veinlets controlled and often in stringers; and
iii) With decametric moderate to strong silicification and sericitization spatially related.
Southern extension of the Épervier zone from hole LCS20-13 with hole LCS20-14 recording 0.870g/t AuEq over 6m. The Épervier zone was originally discovered from the Company's 2019 core drill program, highlighted by hole LCS19-008 which assayed 1.54g/t Au over 15.15m (see Northern Superior Resources press release, December 9, 2019).
Lac Surprise is 100% owned by Northern Superior, consists of a large 15,178.5 hectares land package and has numerous high priority drill targets identified. Northern Superior's fall drill program focused on several targets immediately west of the Vanstar/IAMGold JV Nelligan gold property which hosts the 3.2 million ounce at 1.02 g/t Au inferred Nelligan resource (see reference to technical report on next page).
