Eastmain, JV partners start 8,000-meter drilling at Eleonore South project

The first phase of an 8,000-meter diamond drill program has started at the Eleonore South gold project in Quebec, which is a joint venture between Goldcorp Inc.'s Les Mines Opinaca Ltée unit, Azimut Exploration Inc. and Eastmain Resources Inc., Azimut and Eastmain said Aug. 9.

Drilling is part of a comprehensive C$3.9 million program designed to follow up on the 2016-2017 drill program completed at Eleonore South and guided by the additional surface geological and geophysical exploration underway at the property.

Phase one will comprise 4,400 meters of drilling in 20 holes from August to October. Nine holes totaling 2,250 meters will aim to assess the grade and extension of the significant drilling results intersected in the tonalite intrusion and extend drilled geological sections southwards to the tonalite contact with metasediments.

Five holes totaling 1,250 meters will continue drill testing the northeast-southwest striking gold-bearing corridor outlined at the property, and an additional 900 meters in six holes will be allocated to drill test new targets developed from surface exploration.

Meanwhile, the second phase of the drill program, to comprise the remaining 3,600 meters of drilling, is scheduled to begin in January 2018, following a full assessment of phase one's results.

Azimut serves as the operator of the current program.
