For immediate release

Cartier Highlights 50 Potential Gold Intersections Over 15 Favorable Kilometers on Chimo Mine Project

 

Highlights of press release:

 

  • 15 km favorable Gold Strike situated within Larder Lake – Cadillac Fault Zone (FIGURE 1)

 

  • 75% of this favorable Gold Strike, acquired in 2022, is not yet explored by Cartier

 

  • 50 anomalous drill intersections within 14 gold-bearing structures comprise exploration targets

 

Val-d’Or, November 21st, 2023 – Cartier Resources Inc. (TSX-V: ECR, FSE: 6CA) (“Cartier”) presents the potential of gold-bearing intersections for future discoveries over 15 km favorable Gold Strike on Chimo Mine Project.  The Project is comprised of the Chimo Mine and East Cadillac properties (FIGURE 2) of which this latter was acquired April 7th, 2022.  The Project, 100% owned by Cartier, is located at 45 km east of the Val-d’Or mining camp (FIGURE 3).

 

“The exploration targets of this new area and not yet explored by Cartier were generated using the knowledge acquired during the drilling that led to the resource**, applied to a robust 780 drill hole database; maximizing the prioritization of the anomalies and chances of success,” commented Philippe Cloutier, President and CEO.

 

The 15 km favorable Gold Strike, situated within the Larder Lake – Cadillac Fault Zone, hosts the resources** (FIGURE 1).  The current resources**(MRE4), representing only 25% of the favorable strike length, are hosted within 19 gold-bearing structures.  To date, the favorable Gold Strike hosts 50 anomalous drill hole intersections (Table 1) within 14 gold-bearing structures of which 8 have not yet been explored by Cartier.  The majority of the drilling targets is located between the surface and a depth of 200 m.

 

Planning of work programs, to be carried out at the appropriate time, is ready for the exploration of the discovery potential of the entire Project (FIGURE 1), to continue increasing the resources (‘’PEA P.304’’) as well as to carry out sorting tests and metallurgical tests from large volumes of mineralized rocks (‘’PEA P.304’’).

 

This preparation phase allows the Cartier team to adequately evaluate all the opportunities that arise and to enhance the shareholders’ equity based on the growth potential of the Chimo Mine Project.
