AuRico Metals drills 338m of 0.64 g/t Au at Kemess East
AURICO METALS Inc. has provided the full assay results from the company’s 2017 exploration program on the Kemess property. Drilling this season focused on converting inferred resource blocks to indicated and testing the northern and southern limits of the Kemess East deposit (eight holes, 11,917 metres). The 2017 exploration also tested the northern extension of mineralization within the Kemess offset zone (KOZ) (two holes, 2,006 metres) located between Kemess Underground and Kemess East.
Highlights from this year’s drilling at Kemess East include:
• KH-17-05 intersected 338 metres of 0.64 gram per tonne Au and 0.45 per cent Cu, including 120 metres of 1.05 g/t Au and 0.60 per cent Cu;
• KH-17-08B intersected 846.5 metres of 0.25 g/t Au and 0.28 per cent Cu, including 208 metres of 0.37 g/t Au and 0.41 per cent Cu;
• KH-17-09 intersected 853.8 metres of 0.24 g/t Au and 0.25 per cent Cu, including 147.5 metres of 0.40 g/t Au and 0.42 per cent Cu.
Highlights from this year’s drilling in the Kemess offset zone include:
• KH-17-10 intersected 461.9 metres of 0.27 g/t Au and 0.22 per cent Cu;
• Including 75 metres of 0.61 g/t Au and 0.41 per cent Cu.

Commenting on today’s exploration results, Chris Richter, president and chief executive officer of AuRico Metals, stated: “We’re pleased to report the outcome of this year’s drilling on the Kemess property and believe we’ve successfully achieved our objectives. At Kemess East we expect to convert a significant amount of inferred resources to indicated resources and a number of the holes point to good potential to grow the resource to the south. At the Kemess offset zone, we intersected long intervals of gold and copper mineralization and this target remains open in every direction. The results from the Kemess East drill program will be incorporated into an updated Kemess East resource expected in the first quarter of 2018.”
The company expects that the 2017 drill program will contribute to converting inferred resource blocks to indicated resource blocks and increase the grade of the Kemess East resource. An updated resource for Kemess East is expected in Q1 2018. Following this year’s drilling, the Kemess East deposit remains open to the west toward the KOZ, to the north and to the south.
We seek Safe Harbor.
