Cartier Awards NI 43-101 Resource Estimate for Nordeau West Deposit
Val-d’Or, June 2, 2022 – Cartier Resources Inc. (TSX-V: ECR) (“Cartier”) has awarded to InnovExplo Inc. (“InnovExplo”) the mandate to estimate the gold resources of the Nordeau West deposit located 450 m east of the Chimo Mine property and prepare a technical report in accordance with NI 43-101. The Chimo Mine property and contiguous East Cadillac property, containing the Nordeau West deposit, whose interests are 100% owned by Cartier, are located 45 km east of Val-d’Or situated along the Cadillac-Larder Lake Fault.
Over the past two years, three (3) NI 43-101 resource estimates have been completed on the Chimo Mine property with 684,000 oz of Au in the indicated category and 1,358,000 oz of Au in the inferred1 category. The recent acquisition of the Nordeau West deposit increases the NI 43-101 resource to 714,400 oz of Au in the indicated category and 1,527,400 oz of Au in the inferred1,2 category; strengthening the economic aspect of the Chimo Mine project.
“This new resource estimate will allow the NI 43-101 resources of the Nordeau West deposit to be integrated with the resource estimate parameters that take into account the lateral proximity of the existing and projected mining infrastructures of the Chimo Mine property,” commented Philippe Cloutier, President and CEO of Cartier Resources.
