O3 Mining Inc has provide new drilling results from the Marban Project in Val-d’Or, Quebec, as part of its well-funded 150,000 metre drilling program. Current drilling on the Malartic property is focused on expanding mineralization outside of the proposed pit areas and identifying high-grade oreshoots. The 2020-2021 drilling program includes 45,000 metres for the Malartic property to test extensions along strike and down plunge of the deposits and zones outside of these areas. President and CEO Jose Vizquerra said "Gold Hawk is shaping up to be a very promising potential high-grade satellite deposit for the Marban mine development project, just 2 kilometres away. The high-grade intercepts confirm the exceptional high-grade characteristic of the gold deposits along the prolific Marbenite shear corridor giving us the confidence to continue the drill program to more quickly unlock its potential and build resources there."
383.4 g/t Au over 2.0 metres in hole O3MA-20-008, including 1,510 g/t Au over 0.5 metres
1.8 g/t Au over 5.0 metres in hole O3MA-20-002
16.8 g/t Au over 0.5 metres in hole O3MA-20-003
These drill holes targeted extensions down plunge of the Gold Hawk zone. The zone is emplaced along the Marbenite shear, one of the main structures in the district which hosts the Marban and Orion #8 deposits as well as Wesdome's Kiena deposit. The drill holes hit the Gold Hawk zone between 390 metres and 570 metres below surface at a 50 to 100 metre spacing. There are pending results from three follow-up drill holes around O3MA-20-008. The encouraging results received so far from Gold Hawk support a decision to continue the exploration program to further explore the mineralization extensions of hole O3MA-20-008, which remain open to the west and at depth.
