Osisko cuts 84 g/t over 5.3 metres at Windfall Lake

QUEBEC – They don’t call it “Windfall” Lake for nothing. The latest windfall from the property was made by Osisko Mining of Toronto. Drilling returned 83.9 g/t gold over 5.3 metres – an almost unheard of length for such a high grade.

And that’s not all. The same hole, OSK-W-18-1731 in the Lynx zone, also returned 89.3 g/t gold over 2.4 metres.

Other holes were almost as promising: OSK-W-18-1728-W1 returned 56.3 g/t gold over 3.3 metres; hole 1738 returned 29.3 g/t over 2.9 metres; hole 1508 returned 27.2 g/t over 2.6 meters; hole 1754 returned 23.7 g/t over 2.9 metres; and hole 1762 returned 13.5 g/t over 4.7 metres.

Osisko plans to release an updated Windfall Lake resource estimate next year. The company is also taking a bulk sample from zone 27, and the preliminary results are on schedule to be available before the end of December.

The property is 100 km east of Lebel-Sur-Quévillon. Maps showing hole locations and full analytical results are available at www.OsiskoMining.com.
