Cartier Commences Drilling on Silver Zone at Cadillac Extension
Val-d’Or, Quebec, November 8th, 2011 – Cartier Resources Inc. (TSX-V: ECR) (“Cartier”) announces that it has commenced drilling on the Cadillac Extension project located 115 kilometers east of Val-d’Or in the province of Quebec. Drilling will focus on testing the continuity at depth of the mineralization outline at surface on the Langlade Deposit ( refer to October 6th, 2011 press release ). Ten holes are planned for a total of 1 200 meters.
The targeted silver enriched polymetalic zone (copper-zinc-silver-gold) was delineated at surface over 4000 square meters (refer to Figure 1) and consists of disseminated to locally massive sulphides. Drill targets were designed by factoring all the assay results, three dimensional modeling of the mineralized zone and recent geophysical results. The induced polarization (“IP”) geophysical survey over the zone outlined an anomaly (refer to Figure 2) that correlates with the mineralization and supports field observations that the potential for the extension of mineralization remains open at depth as well as to the north-west and south.
“We are pleased to be drilling this very robust target” commented Philippe Cloutier, President and CEO of Cartier, adding, “This program will rapidly help determine if there is potential for Langlade at depth and further orient drilling in 2012”.
