Margaux Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:MRL, OTCQB:MARFF) (“Margaux” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on the Company’s Bayonne property, part of Margaux’s Kootenay Arc project in southern British Columbia.
- High gold results including 51.6 g/t Au and 46.6 g/t Au from the Maggie Aikens vein.
- 6 holes totaling 475 metres completed at the Maggie Aikens target.
- Drilling currently targeting the Bayonne Main and A vein splays.
“These results continue Margaux’s exciting run of high grade gold samples on the Bayonne property” commented Tyler Rice, President and CEO of Margaux. “The potential of the Bayonne is being revealed and the upcoming drill results should provide a greater understanding of the extent of mineralization and the potential for new vein discoveries.”
Margaux is pleased to report high gold rock sample results from the Maggie Aikens vein including 51.6 g/t Au. Results, as seen in the table below, were returned from 6 rock samples collected from the dumps of several sloughed historic exploration pits, and from the dump of a short exploration adit.
The historic workings explore a zone of quartz veining within granodiorite, over a strike length of approximately 100 metres. The Maggie Aikens target is untested by any recent work and, prior to Margaux’s current drill program, had not been tested by drilling.
As part of Margaux’s current diamond drill program at Bayonne, 6 holes (totaling 475 m) have now been drilled to test the Maggie Aikens vein at depth below samples 8773-8778. Logging and core sampling is underway. The drill rig has now been mobilized to the western part of the Bayonne property, where drilling will test the at-depth continuation of the Bayonne Main and A vein splays.
Samples reported in this were grab samples collected from the dumps of historic workings. Samples were shipped to ActLabs’ Kamloops, B.C. laboratory (ISO 9001:2008, ISO 17025, CAN-P-1579 certification) for preparation and analysis. Samples were crushed at the lab to 80% passing a 10 mesh (2 mm) screen, then a 250 g split of the crushed sample was pulverized to 95% passing 105 microns. All samples were analysed for gold by FA/AA finish on a 30 g sample of pulverized material, and for a multi-element suite by ICP-MS following aqua regia digestion. For samples returning > 10 g/t Au by FA/AA methods, gold was assayed by FA/gravimetric methods on a 30 gm sample.
Linda Caron, M.Sc., P.Eng, Margaux’s Vice President of Exploration, is the Company’s Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101 who has reviewed and approved the technical information contained within this press release.
