Renforth Resources hits visible nickel, copper and zinc sulphides with step-out drilling at Victoria West, Surimeau project

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Renforth Resources Inc (CSE:RFR) (OTCQB:RFHRF) (FSE:9RR) on Wednesday updated on its ongoing drill program on the Victoria West target area of its Surimeau District Property, located south of Malartic, Quebec, and contiguous to the Canadian Malartic Mine.

As of the end of day March 29, Renforth said it had completed four holes SUR-21-04, SUR-21-05 and SUR-21-06, SUR-21-07 in two fences and 813 meters (m) of drilling.

The company said the visual results obtained in SUR-21-04 through SUR-21-07 reveal the presence of nickel, copper, and zinc sulphide mineralization hosted primarily in bands of graphitic siltstones and quartzites within thick bands of ultramafics — as also observed in the holes drilled in fall 2020.

Pyrrhotite seems to be the most common sulphide at this point in the program, Renforth noted, with pentlandite, chalcopyrite, and sphalerite seen within or adjacent to the pyrrhotite. Chalcopyrite is also often seen within silica-rich veinlets and stringers, as the graphitic siltstones and quartzites are often silicified while being low in carbonate minerals. 

Overall, the company said the units appear to be lead deficient evidenced by a lack of galena and nil-to-low XRF values of lead indicating an Archean genesis of the system. 

Renforth said the first fence, SUR-21-04 and SUR-21-05, were a 1,350 meter step out to the west from SUR-20-103. The mineralized package of lithologies seen to date is approximately 200m in thickness with sediments to the north and south. The Victoria West system strikes approximately 5 kilometers (km) east to west, as evidenced by geophysics, historic work, Renforth’s surface work, and drilling.

“Drilling has revealed that the mineralized bodies are generally dipping north at an angle of about 50 degrees, indicating a potential relationship between the Victoria West target area and the LaLonde target area approximately 3 km to the north,” the company said. “The mineralized material intersected by the drill is visually identical to the material observed on surface at LaLonde. This observation will require follow-up work.”

Renforth said the Victoria West Target drill program continues. Planned is 16 holes for 3,500m. Samples have been selected from the four holes completed to date, split, and delivered to the lab for assaying.
