Renforth Resources Inc. (CSE – RFR) (OTCQB– RFHRF) (FSE-9RR) (“Renforth” or the “Company”) is pleased to inform shareholders that drilling is underway under visual surface nickel, copper, cobalt and zinc mineralization previously stripped at our Victoria West target, within our 260 km2 property, contiguous to the Canadian Malartic Mine in Malartic, Quebec.
- 2 of 3 planned drill holes in the eastern end complete at dips of -45 and -60 degrees, extending visual nickel, copper, cobalt and zinc to 100 vertical metres below the stripped area, confirmed with an XRF
- 3 holes planned in the western end
- 1 or 2 holes planned in centre under large intrusive mound
“We took the opportunity to immediately follow up on our successful stripping program at Victoria West with a targeted drill program ahead of the holidays in the eastern and the western ends of the stripped area at Victoria West. We are drilling two areas which gave the strongest visual mineralization and XRF field results in our previously announced, recently completed channeling program. It is always a good day when the drill is turning, in this case on one of our battery metals (nickel and cobalt) and sulphide (copper and zinc) targets on our Surimeau District Property, advancing this project, endowed with critical and strategic minerals, as quickly as we can” states Nicole Brewster, President and CEO of Renforth.
Drilling is taking place in the eastern and the western ends of the ~275m stripped strike of the 2.2km mineralized strike which Renforth has drilled within the known 5km strike of the Victoria West target at Surimeau. At each set up three drill holes are being drilled to undercut the surface mineralization at -45, -60 and -80 degrees dip in order to test for continuity of mineralization down dip, which, if successful, may extend mineralization as deep as 120 vertical metres. Renforth also plans to test the centre of the stripped area, where a secondary intrusive separated the main shear zone, this will be done with one or two drill holes.
The best visual mineralization has so far been observed within strongly albitized calc-silicate altered zones within the ultramafics where frequent fine to coarse stringers, disseminations, and occasionally semi-massive sulfides, including pyrite, pyrrhotite, pentlandite, sphalerite, and chalcopyrite. Mineralization in the form of fine to coarse stringers and nodules of sulfide has also been observed in drill core in narrow graphitic bands at the ultramafic-sedimentary contacts.
