MONTREAL , May 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Osisko Metals Incorporated (the “Company” or “Osisko Metals”) (TSX-V: OM; FRANKFURT: OB51, OTCQX: OMZNF) is pleased to announce additional assay results from 100 drill holes completed in the X-65 area within the North Zone of the Pine Point Mining Camp (“PPMC”). Highlights include drill hole X65-19-PP-025 that intersected 18.25% zinc and 1.31% lead over 32.24 metres and hole X65-19-PP-062 that intersected 9.62% zinc and 1.15% lead over 14.48 metres.


All intersections are hosted within a flat lying tabular-style deposit known as X-65. All intercepts, except for X65-19-PP010 described below, are located between 17 to 73 metre vertical depths. Highlights are listed below in Table 1 and all composite assays and collar information details are provided in Tables 2 & 3. (See 2018 Summer Drill Campaign North Zone - X-65 Pit Area).


A significant mineralized intersection was also cut in hole X65-19-PP-010 that encountered 2.41% zinc + lead over 1.00 meter at a stratigraphic interval 93 metres below mineralization in the X-65 Tabular deposit. This intercept confirms the potential of this lower horizon (in the Pine Point Formation below X-65) since this deeper stratigraphy hosts the historical X-15 deposit (past production 17.5Mt at 8.2% zinc + lead) that is located 22 kilometers to the northeast.

Jeff Hussey, President & CEO of Osisko Metals, commented: “The exploration potential at Pine Point is enormous and the deeper intercept in X65-19-PP-10 reaffirms this potential. Cominco Ltd. largely focused their drilling on the upper third of the stratigraphic units which host mineralization at Pine Point. Some of the larger deposits, such as X-15 and N-204, are found in these lower units which remain poorly tested along the 65km of strike length. We are encouraged by this drilling and strongly believe that new discoveries can be made at Pine Point.”


The newly modelled pit covering the X-65 deposit measures 1,760 by 180 metres and it is located in the North Zone (as described in the SEDAR-filed Amended NI43-101Technical Report). It is situated 11 kilometres northwest of the electrical sub-station adjacent to a main haul road. A portion of the X-65 deposit was mined underground by Cominco Ltd. and produced 149,770 tonnes of 12.9% zinc and 7.0% lead. Six of the reported drill holes in this press release were drilled over the area mined underground by Cominco and are flagged in Table 2 and 3 as X-65m. Reported NI43-101 Inferred Mineral Resources for the North Zone total 5.5 million tonnes grading 3.76% zinc and 1.30% lead.


The objective of the 2018 – 2019 drill program was to convert the Cominco Ltd. unclassified, near-surface historical resources into modern standardized mineral resources. An initial Inferred Mineral Resource of 38.4 Mt grading 4.58% zinc and 1.85% lead was calculated on historical drilling and 317 holes of a total of 1031 holes drilled to date. These latest X-65 drill holes were not included in the Mineral Resource Estimate.


About Osisko Metals
Osisko Metals is a Canadian exploration and development company creating value in the base metal space with a focus on zinc mineral assets. The Company controls Canada’s two premier historical zinc mining camps: The Pine Point Mining Camp (“PPMC”), located on the south shore of Great Slave Lake in the Northwest Territories, near established infrastructure, paved highway access and with 100 kilometres of mine haulage roads and power substation already in place. The PPMC currently hosts a NI43-101 Inferred Mineral Resource of 38.4 Mt grading 4.58% zinc and 1.85% lead, making it the largest near-surface, pit-constrained zinc deposit in Canada (please refer to the SEDAR-filed Amended Technical Report for further information). The 2018-2019 drill holes, once fully assayed, will be incorporated into the database with the objective of issuing a new resource estimate in H2 2019. The Bathurst Mining Camp (“BMC”), located in northern New Brunswick, with NI43-101 Indicated Mineral Resources of 1.96 Mt grading 5.77% zinc, 2.38% lead, 0.22% copper and 68.9g/t silver (9.00% ZnEq) and Inferred Mineral Resources of 3.85 Mt grading 5.34% zinc, 1.49% lead, 0.32% copper and 47.7 g/t silver (7.96% ZnEq) in the Key Anacon and Gilmour South deposits. In Québec, the Company owns 42,000 hectares that cover 12 grass-root Zinc targets that will be selectively advanced through exploration in 2019.

Quality Assurance / Quality Control


Osisko Metals adheres to a strict Quality Assurance and Quality Control program with regard to core handling, sampling, transportation of samples and lab analyses. Drill core samples from the Pine Point project area were securely transported to its core facility in Hay River, Northwest Territories where they were logged and sampled. Samples selected for assay were shipped via secure transportation to the ALS Canada Ltd.’s preparation facility in Yellowknife. Pulps were analyzed at the ALS Canada Ltd. facility in North Vancouver, British Columbia. All samples are analyzed by four acid digestion followed by both ICP-AES and ICP-MS for ultra-trace level detection for a multi-element suite with a 1% upper detection limit for base metals. Samples reporting over 1% for Zn and 1% for Pb are analyzed by assay grade four acid digestion and ICP-AES analysis with an upper detection limit of 30% and 20% respectively. Samples reporting Zn >30% and or Pb >20% are analyzed by traditional titration.
