QMX Gold drills 83.8 m of 1.9 g/t Au at Bonnefond
QMX GOLD Corp. has released assay results from the second hole in a 4,500-metre drill program targeting the Bonnefond South tonalite plug on the east side of QMX Gold’s extensive land package in Val d’Or, Que.
• The second hole intersected the tonalite plug from the bedrock interface at 71.8 metres, down to a hole depth of 155.6 metres. The entire interval demonstrated alteration and veining typical of the mineralized zone and assayed 1.9 g/t gold over 83.8 metres (core length).
• Within this interval, a sheared mafic dike returned 4.9 grams per tonne gold over 10.2 metres from 95.8 metres to 106.0 metres.
• Four shear zones were also intersected within the footwall volcanic rocks below the Bonnefond South plug. The shears are similar to those encountered in the first hole of this program (press release: Sept. 13, 2017) with assay results of up to 7.0 g/t gold over 2.8 metres.
• Eight holes for 3,807 metres have been completed to date, assays for holes 3 through 8 are pending.

“Drilling on our Val d’Or mining camp property continues to yield strong results. Combining these initial results on Bonnefond South with the discoveries announced earlier in 2017, our team is proving its ability to successfully identify, evaluate and target prospective areas across our large land package in the heart of the Val d’Or mining district,” commented Brad Humphrey, president and chief executive officer. “The Bonnefond South drill program is successfully achieving its three primary goals: confirm AUR Resources’ results within the plug, allow us to use downhole core-orientation tools and test for the extension of mineralization outside of the plug. The results to date have exceeded our expectations.”
“The first two QMX drill holes confirm good continuity in widths and grades between the wider-spaced historical holes. Further drilling and the use of oriented drill core will allow us to better define the potential for extensions of both the tonalite plug and mineralization,” stated David Rigg, senior vice-president, exploration.
