Gold Targets on Wilson Project
Val-d’Or, September 27, 2016 – Cartier Resources Inc. (TSX-V: ECR) (“Cartier”) is pleased to announce an update of work on its Wilson Property, situated 15 km east of Lebel-sur-Quévillon. The compilation work and validation of all historical exploration data have confirmed the high grade gold values of the project. Interpretation of the data also led to targeting, in the center of the property, of a high gold potential area on which to focus the first phases of work.
This area, host of the Toussaint Deposit and Midrim showing (Table below), is outlined over a distance of 1,000 m by geophysical anomalies as well as drilling on a 50m grid and on average to a depth of 75m.
BEST GOLD RESULTS
21.3 g/t Au over 5.0 m including 90.6 g/t Au over 1.0 m
15.3 g/t Au over 4.0 m including 47.3 g/t Au over 1.0 m
13.4 g/t Au over 3.0 m including 24.2 g/t Au over 1.0 m
1.5 g/t Au over 67.0 m including 30.1 g/t Au over 1.0 m
33.2 g/t Au over 3.0 m including 164.5 g/t Au over 0.6 m
2.0 g/t Au over 41.4 m including 11.7 g/t Au over 5.2 m
20.2 g/t Au over 2.6 m including 32.2 g/t Au over 1.1 m
10.5 g/t Au over 4.8 m including 34.3 g/t Au over 0.8 m
6.3 g/t Au over 7.0 m including 32.3 g/t Au over 1.0 m
64.6 g/t Au over 0.4 m
5.8 g/t Au over 4.1 m
6.3 g/t Au over 2.0 m
The length of the samples is expressed as the lengths of the channel and core. True thickness is not yet estimated.
Within this area of high gold potential, line cutting was recently completed and a 35 km OreVision (Deep IP) survey will commence late October in order to locate anomalies and continuity of the mineralization below the current limit of 75 m depth. The survey will test the Toussaint-Midrim gold bearing area to a depth of 450 m. A diamond drill programme will follow in order to explore the anomalous zones below the deposit and showings as well as any anomalies identified outside the current sector of interest.
« Our recent work suggest that the Toussaint Deposit and Midrim Showing gold mineralization is still open laterally and at depth. To date, of all the know gold mineralization on the project, the Toussaint-Midrim area offers the most obvious potential and exploration upside for discovering additional mineralized zones» commented Philippe Cloutier, President and CEO.
