Osisko Metals drills 13 metres of 19% zinc+lead at Pine Point
Osisko Metals of Montreal has released additional assays from 145 drill holes completed in the L-36 and L-35 areas in the East Mill zone at the Pine Point zinc-lead camp. The intersections are within flat, tabular deposits and are located between nine to 51 metres below surface.
Excellent results came from hole EM-18-PP-331 that intersected 10.23% zinc and 9.19% lead over 13.1 metres and hole EM-18-PP-209 intersected 9.60% zinc and 1.53% lead over 13.5 metres.
Notable assays were also received from hole EM-18-PP-211 that cut 20.28% zinc and 5.92% lead over 6.0 metres and hole EM-18-PP-351 WITH11.62% zinc and 2.50% lead over 10.0 metres.
Osisko gave an initial 2018 inferred resource of 38.4 million tonnes grading 4.58% zinc and 1.855 lead. The current drill program will convert unclassified, near surface historical mineralization into the current resources and to locally extend known zones of mineralization.
