New Intercepts Embrace 90.5 g/t Au Over 9.7 Metres in Triple Lynx
TORONTO, Jan. 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Osisko Mining Inc. (OSK:TSX. “Osisko” or the “Company”) is happy to offer new analytical outcomes from the continued enlargement and definition drill program at its 100% owned Windfall gold venture situated within the Abitibi greenstone belt, City Township, Eeyou Istchee James Bay, Québec.
Drilling is at the moment targeted on the Lynx deposit. Osisko Chief Government Officer John Burzynski commented: “Damaged report alert, infill drilling continues to point out each the continuity and high-grade nature of Lynx, persistently returning good outcomes on grade and widths as demonstrated by at this time’s headline gap. We’re advancing our work on the deposit at full velocity, with over 35 drills energetic on floor and underground.”
The desk beneath accommodates useful resource definition infill intercepts situated contained in the February 2020 mineral useful resource estimate wireframes (see Osisko information launch dated February 19, 2020). Important new analytical outcomes are introduced beneath and embody 46 intercepts in 17 drill holes and 14 wedges.
Chosen high-grade intercepts from the brand new outcomes embody: 90.5 g/t Au over 9.7 meters in OSK-W-20-2252-W7; 59.5 g/t Au over 2.0 metres in OSK-W-20-2292-W5; 38.4 g/t Au over 5.5 meters in OSK-W-20-2252-W8; 37.1 g/t Au over 2.0 metres in WST-20-0542A; 32.2 g/t Au over 3.7 metres in OSK-W-20-2243-W6.

Mineralization happens as gray to translucent quartz-carbonate-pyrite-tourmaline veins and pyrite substitute zones and stockworks. The vein-type is related to haloes of pervasive sericite-pyrite ± silica alteration and comprise sulphides (predominantly pyrite with minor quantities of chalcopyrite, sphalerite, galena, arsenopyrite, and pyrrhotite) and native seen gold. Alternative mineralization is related to robust pervasive silica-sericite-ankerite ± tourmaline alteration and accommodates disseminated pyrite from hint to 80% with native seen gold. Pyrite stockworks can kind envelopes that attain a number of tens of metres thick. Fuchsite alteration is frequent and is spatially constrained to close the gabbros. Mineralization happens at or close to geological contacts between felsic porphyritic or fragmental intrusions and the host rhyolites or gabbros and domestically could be hosted alongside the gabbro-rhyolite contact.
Mineralization within the Triple Lynx zone is vein-type, quartz-carbonate-pyrite-tourmaline veins, related to pervasive sericite-pyrite ± silica alteration and comprise sulphides much like the principle Lynx Zone, pyrite dominated with minor different sulphides, starting from hint to as much as 70% domestically, and native seen gold. Domestically fuchsite is current when proximal to the gabbros. Mineralization is hosted in or on the contacts of felsic porphyritic dikes with rhyolites (domestically bleached) or gabbros.
Certified Particular person
The scientific and technical content material of this information launch has been reviewed, ready and authorized by Mr. Louis Grenier, M.Sc.A., P.Geo.

High quality Management and Reporting Protocols
True width willpower is estimated at 55-80% of the reported core size interval for the zone. Assays are uncut besides the place indicated. Intercepts happen inside geological confines of main zones however haven’t been correlated to particular person vein domains at the moment. Reported intervals embody minimal weighted averages of three.0 g/t Au diluted over core lengths of no less than 2.0 metres. All NQ core assays reported have been obtained by both 1-kilogram display fireplace assay or normal 50-gram fire-assaying-AA end or gravimetric end at (i) ALS Laboratories in Val d’Or, Québec, Thunder Bay, Ontario, Sudbury, Ontario or Vancouver, British Colombia, or (ii) Bureau Veritas in Timmins, Ontario. The 1-kilogram display assay methodology is chosen by the geologist when samples comprise coarse gold or current the next share of pyrite than surrounding intervals. Chosen samples are additionally analyzed for multi-elements, together with silver, utilizing a 4 acids digestion -MS61 methodology at ALS Laboratories. Drill program design, High quality Assurance/High quality Management (“QA/QC”) and interpretation of outcomes is carried out by certified individuals using a QA/QC program per NI 43-101 and business finest practices. Requirements and blanks are included with each 20 samples for QA/QC functions by the Company in addition to the lab. Roughly 5% of pattern pulps are despatched to secondary laboratories for examine assay.
In regards to the Windfall Gold Deposit
The Windfall gold deposit is situated between Val-d’Or and Chibougamau in Eeyou Istchee James Bay, Québec, Canada. The mineral useful resource outlined by Osisko, as disclosed within the information launch dated February 19, 2020 and supported by the technical report entitled “An up to date mineral useful resource estimate for the Windfall Lake Mission, Positioned within the Abitibi Greenstone Belt, City Township, Eeyou Istchee James Bay, Québec, Canada” and dated April 3, 2020 (with an efficient date of January 3, 2020), and assuming a cut-off grade of three.5 g/t, contains 4,127,000 tonnes at 9.1 g/t Au (1,206,000 ounces) within the indicated mineral useful resource class and 14,532,000 tonnes at 8.40 g/t Au (3,938,000 ounces) within the inferred mineral useful resource class. The important thing assumptions, parameters and strategies used to estimate the mineral useful resource estimate disclosed within the February 19,2020 information launch are additional described within the full technical report ready by Micon Worldwide Restricted (“Micon”) and BBA Inc (“BBA”), in accordance with NI 43-101 out there on SEDAR (www.sedar.com) underneath the Company’s issuer profile. The Windfall gold deposit is at the moment one of many highest-grade resource-stage gold initiatives in Canada and has world-class scale. Mineralization happens in three principal zones: Lynx, Essential Zone, and Underdog. Mineralization is usually comprised of deformed sub-vertical zones plunging to the northeast. Vein-type or pyrite replacement-type types of mineralization crosscut syn-volcanic host rocks and syn-deformation felsic porphyry intrusions and are spatially related to the contacts of the intrusions. The deposit is nicely outlined from floor to a depth of 1,200 metres and stays open alongside strike and at depth. Mineralization has been recognized 30 metres from floor in some areas and as deep as 2,000 metres in others, with vital potential to increase mineralization down-plunge and at depth.
