Cartier Cuts 6.5 g/t Au over 4.0 m, 165m below Zone 3 at Chimo Mine

Val-d’Or, March 6th, 2018 – Cartier Resources Inc. (TSX-V: ECR) (“Cartier”) is pleased to announce new results from its ongoing 34,000-m drill program on the Chimo Mine property, situated 45 km east of Val-d’Or.  These new results were intersected at a depth of 635 m along the extension of Zone 3 (FIGURE).

Intersections grading 24.8 g/t Au over 1.0 m included within 6.5 g/t Au over 4.0 m and included within 1.6 g/t Au over 25.0 m were cut 165 m below historic stopes of Zone 3 (Structure 3) (FIGURE).  Also, intersections grading 3.7 g/t Au over 2.2 m including 5.9 g/t Au over 1.1 m were intersected 130 m west of stopes of Zone 5M (Structure 5M) at a depth of 80 m.  The new gold-bearing intersections as well as additional gold-bearing intervals of interest are presented in the table below. All other assay results from the four drills active on the property are still pending.

« Zone 3 was the second most productive gold-bearing zone in terms of ounces produced at the Chimo Mine.  These results show that gold mineralization continues at depth below the stopes of the Zone » commented Philippe Cloutier, President and CEO of Cartier, adding « Drill hole CH17-29 first cut Zone 3, then 150 m further downhole, cut Zone 5M (February 14, 2018, Press Release : with 1.9 g/t Au over 13.0 m including 3.8 g/t Au over 3.0 m ».

3D VIDEO, also available on Cartier’s website, helps visualize the different gold-bearing structures on the Chimo Mine property as well as key components that are the mine infrastructures, the gold-bearing zones, the gold intersection areas left unmined as well as the 281 targets of the ongoing drill program.  The 3 Structure is presented in the video.

Quality Assurance / Quality Control


All lengths, mentioned in this press release, were measured along the drill core. The NQ core samples are crushed up to 80% passing 8 mesh sieves and then pulverized up to 90% passing a 200-mesh sieve. Cartier inserts 5% of the number of samples in the form of certified standards and another 5% in the form of sterile samples to ensure quality control. The samples are analyzed at the Techni-Lab laboratory (Actlabs), located in Ste-Germaine-Boulé, Quebec. The 50 g pulps are analyzed by fire assay and atomic absorption. For samples containing visible gold, 1000 g of rock are directly analyzed by the “Metallic Sieve” method.

The scientific and/or technical information presented in this press release has been reviewed and approved by Mr. Gaétan Lavallière, P. Geo., Ph. D. and Vice President for Cartier Resources.  Mr. Lavallière is a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
