Amex Exploration (TSXV:AMX) has reported new results from ongoing drilling at the Team Zone on the Perron project in the Abitibi region of Quebec. Team Zone occurs approximately 600m to the northeast of the High Grae Zone and roughly 300m northeast of the E2 Gold Zone, encompassing an approximate area of 300m by 250m from surface to a depth of approximately 400m. The Team Zone is currently open at depth and along strike and is the newest target generated from the company’s regional exploration campaign from the last year.
Jacques Trottier, Executive Chairman of Amex, commented in a press release: “The Team Zone is shaping up to be a significant component of the overall mineralized system at Perron. It has now delivered gold mineralization in each drill hole, with a mix of both high-grade vein-hosted gold and lower grade stockwork and disseminated mineralization. Today’s results, particularly in hole PE-22-580 with high grades up to 72.06 gram of gold over 1.00 metre, confirm the potential at depth in this system, and the balance of the drillholes affirm our earlier expectations of a widespread near surface orebody. In addition to the known mineralization, the Team Zone adds significantly to our regional targeting as it is a different style of mineralization than encountered elsewhere.”
Highlights from the results are as follows:
PE-22-568: 4.73 g/t Au over 8.20 m at a vertical depth of ~115 m
Including: 27.07 g/t Au over 1.00 m
PE-22-570: 2.71 g/t over 10.50 m at a vertical depth of ~100 m
Including: 38.97 g/t Au over 0.50 m
PE-22-571: 2.69 g/t Au over 5.00 m at a vertical depth of ~50 m
PE-22-580: 9.21 g/t Au over 3.90 m at a vertical depth of ~210 m
And: 0.84 g/t Au over 14.40 m at a vertical depth of ~240 m
And: 72.06 g/t Au over 1.00 m at a vertical depth of ~305 m
PE-22-583: 1.04 g/t Au over 26.00 m at a vertical depth of ~394 m
Today’s results represent continued testing of the extents, grade, and dimensions of the new Team Zone. Drilling was conducted in several orientations (as shown in Table 2) in order to identify controls on mineralization. The Team Zone is shaping up to be a shallowly eastward-plunging body which begins at surface and is open to depth and to the east. The large overall mineralized trend is driven by several higher-grade areas as can be seen in Figure 2. Further work is required to fully define the higher-grade sub-structures. The Zone is also parallel and adjacent to the E2 Gold Zone to the southwest, and to the 210 & Upper 210 to the northwest. Structural interpretation indicates that the Upper 210 may occur on a similar structure to that of the Team Zone, and further drilling is required to test if they are connected. See Table 1 for a list of the today’s drill results, Table 2 for drill hole coordinates, Figure 1 for a map of the Perron project geology showing the location of the Team Zone, Figure 2 for a map showing the distribution of assayed gold identified to date throughout the Team Zone, and Figure 3 for photos of visible gold in several holes in the Team Zone.
