Metanor Resources Inc. is pleased to provide another update of its activities at the Bachelor Lake Project.
Based on the encouraging results obtained to date on the Hewfran/Bachelor Project, Metanor Resource has extended its drilling campaign in the Hewfran West. Since its last press release (ref. press release disclosed on October 13th 2011), an additional 1,300 meters of drilling was completed from surface in the Hewfran West sector. These additional holes were adjacent to those holes mentioned in the previous press release. Metanor obtained the results of three (3) additional completed drill holes, which are as follows:
Drill Hole From (m) To (m) Width (m) * Grade g/T Au Zone
11.99 Footwall. HA-West
Including : 131.88
(* All intercepts represent the true core length).
The drilling still targeted mainly the Hewfran A West zone between 100 and 330 meters below the surface which is located 850 meters west from the Bachelor Lake mine shaft. This structure already contains resources (indicated and inferred; ref.: Technical Report NI 43-101 Stantec, Feb. 2011) and is accessible from a drift located on level 6 at Bachelor Lake Mine. The holes all intersected their target and the alteration type and mineralization associated to the presence of gold were observed at different degrees in all the drill holes completed as of now, and over a lateral distance of 150 meters. The structure is open in all directions (at depth and laterally). The next focus of the campaign is to verify the extension going west of that zone. Based on the results to date, Metanor is very confident to increase the resources in this sector.
Metanor Resources is actively continuing its drilling program from surface and intend to extend its exploration program on the Hewfran East sector once the drilling is completed on the Hewfran-West sector. The Hewfran-East sector is located between Bachelor and the Hewfran-West sector. Moreover, in the coming days, Metanor will begin the underground drilling of the Main and B veins from level 15 at the Bachelor Lake Mine.
The true width is approximately 90% of the core length obtained in diamond drill holes. The samples were assayed by fire-assay at the Metanor assay lab. With the quality control program of the assay results (QA QC) adopted by Metanor, a minimum of 10% of controlled assays being conducted as well as verification by an independent external assay lab.
Metanor is a Canadian based gold mining company with a focus on adding value per share through efficient exploration, and development of it properties. Maintaining a low risk profile through a strong operating team, sound financial management, and operating in secure jurisdictions like Quebec are key priorities for Metanor’s management team.
