Geomega Resources Inc.: 250 Meters Gold-Bearing Corridor on Anik
September 4, 2014 (Source: Marketwired) — Highlights of this news release:
- New outcrop grading 3.16 g/t Au located 200 meters N-E of the discovery outcrop
- Two (2) blocks grading 2.63 g/t and 2.84 g/t Au located 50 meters S-W of the discovery outcrop
- One (1) meter channel sampling on the toppled block from the discovery outcrop grading 3.25 g/t Au
- Property 100% owned by GéoMégA (claimed in 2011 and 2013)
Futher to the news release of August 29, 2014, Geomega Resources Inc. (“GéoMégA” or the “Company“) (TSX VENTURE:GMA), is pleased to announce the discovery of new gold-bearing outcrops revealing a 250 meters mineralized corridor on its Anik property located 40 km south of Chapais, in Québec. Three (3) mineralized outcrops, more then 250 meters apart, confirm the extensions and gold potential of the corridor. A saw sample taken on the new, mechanically stripped outcrop graded 3.16 g/t Au. In addition, two (2) new angular to sub-angular blocks, located 50 meters S-W of the discovery outcrop, graded 2.63 and 2.84 g/t Au. The gold-bearing corridor is located within an important structural zone of the Guercheville/Opawica deformation corridor.
“Anik is sending us excellent signals with its various mineralized outcrops and angular blocks near the discovery. We are at the beginning of a new gold discovery. Currently, the best results (7.86 g/t, 8.03 g/t and 10.30 g/t Au) are in altered, highly friable schists. The presence of overburden throughout the gold-bearing corridor makes access to the schists difficult. The work resumes next week to identify the extensions of the mineralized outcrops and identify drilling targets.” comments Alain Cayer, Vice-President Exploration of GéoMégA.

The lithologies, alterations and mineralizations found in the sector are extensive and showcase significant hydrothermal activity in this portion of the Guercheville/Opawica deformation corridor. Ultramafics, mafics, sediment units and felsic dikes are among identified lithologies. Alterations found are sericite, ankerite, silica-quartz, talc, tourmaline, fuchsite and green and black chlorite. The mineralization consists of traces to 10% disseminated pyrite or locally in veinlets and traces of chalcopyrite. Generally, they are associated with silicification and ankeritisation within a wide zone of sericite schist.
