Yorbeau Resources Inc. (TSX:YRB.A) announced diamond drill results for its wholly owned Quebec-based Scott Lake project. Highlights include 5 meters of 12.1 percent zinc and 0.7 percent copper.
As quoted in the press release:
The high grade massive sulphides (5.0 metres of 12.1% zinc and 0.7% copper) discovered at a depth of 588.6 metres are associated with a distinct mineralized horizon located about 100 metres to the north of the one hosting the newly discovered Gap Lens. These sulphides are associated with a rhyolite unit known as “Tony Rhyolite” and this interval is therefore interpreted as being located along the up-dip extension of the CFO Lens but at much shallower depth than indicated by previous work (see attached Figure 1).
Hole SC-82W did not intersect mineralization along the Gap Lens. Indeed, at the targeted depth volcanic host rocks are cut by barren intrusive rocks associated with the Chibougamau Pluton. This situation is analogous to what happened in hole SC-53W5 (see Figure 1 and press release of October 13, 2015) and reinforces the concept of a steep plunge to the west for the Gap Lens and possibly the West Lens. Hole SC-31W2 is a wedge cut drilled from hole SC-31W (press release of November 30, 2015). The stringer sulphides in SC-31W2 are all hosted by altered rhyolite, as is the case in the West Lens and in previous intersections from the Gap Lens.
Gerald Riverin, president of Yorbeau, commented:
We are very encouraged with the high grade results of SC-82W along the CFO horizon. Now with a second cut on this target horizon, we are confident that this shallower high grade zone has some extent and may develop into a significant zone. We are looking forward to pursuing drilling in this sector.
