With a nine-hole, 1,000-metre program now underway, Intact Gold TSXV:ITG plans to target promising areas of a western Quebec project with an historic resource.

Intact Gold begins drilling its Belleterre gold project in Quebec

Extensive previous work has left Belleterre
an historic resource and some intriguing targets.

Plans for the 1,700-hectare Belleterre property call for three holes testing previously undrilled gold-in-soil anomalies that coincide with conductors and magnetic anomalies. Four other holes will test the extension of a gold-bearing structure drilled between 2010 and 2011. Two more holes will step out from 1990s drilling which intersected gold-bearing quartz veins along a northeast-trending structure, the company stated.

Previous work consisted of 567 holes totalling 65,800 metres. A 2007 resource that Intact treats as historic and non-43-101 for the property’s Guillet area used a 1 g/t cutoff:

  • measured: 19,487 tonnes averaging 2.16 g/t for 1,356 ounces gold

  • indicated: 301,463 tonnes averaging 2.66 g/t for 25,754 ounces

  • inferred: 76,570 tonnes averaging 2.31 g/t for 5,687 ounces

Located 145 kilometres south of Val-d’Or and covering part of a greenstone belt, the road-accessible Belleterre project sits about two kilometres from a former mine of that name which produced 2.17 million tons averaging 10.73 g/t gold from 1936 to 1959.
