Eastmain Resources (TSE:ER) Inc has updated the market with encouraging results from trenching carried out on the Eastmain Mine in Quebec.

Channel samples from one particular trench weighed in at almost 26 grams per tonne of gold over a 2.2-metre interval with a 70-centimetre interval grading 55.7 grams.

Beyond that the grades were in single digits, ranging from 2.35 grams to 6.79 grams, with higher-grade intervals within the same trenches of up to 13.3 grams.

The latest data came from the Suzanna and Hillhouse zones.  Hillhouse trenches EM16-H2 and EM16-H3 returned samples that had a lot in common with the area around the historic mine.

Meanwhile, six grab samples collected from the massive sulfide lens found in the EM16-H2 trench returned gold values ranging between 8.49 grams to 77.50 grams of the yellow metal.

Chief executive Claude Lemasson said: “We are encouraged with the trenching results to date. Based on the Eastmain Mine historical high grade production of over 10 grams per ton of gold, we are pleased to see these trenching results within a few km of the historic mine, and on the mine trend.

“Our 7,500-metre drill program is well-underway, testing a number of near-surface targets, including the recently identified mineralization, as well as near the historic resource.”
