600 meters Gold Vector Confirmed by Drilling on Anik
Highlights of this news release:
- 15 meters grading 1 g/t Au under Bobby showing
- 1 meter grading 2.83 g/t Au and 3 meters grading 1.24 g/t Au under Orbi showing
- 1 meter grading 4.30 g/t Au between the Orbi and Bobby showings
Montreal, January 20, 2015 – Geomega Resources Inc. (“GéoMégA” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: GMA) announces the first results of its initial drilling campaign (“Phase 1”) which is currently ongoing on the Anik project. To date, 17 drill holes have been completed for 3,837 meters. Of the fourteen (14) first drill holes that have been compiled, six (6) investigated the showings (Bobby, Orbi and Mirador) and eight (8) investigated regional targets having combined geophysical and/or geochemical anomalies (soils).

Phase 1: Significant intersections
|Drill holes||Target||Azimuth/Dip||From (m)||To (m)||Length 1 (m)||Au (g/t)|
|ANK-02||ORBI / Trench 35-S||N345°/-45°||110.0||115.0||5.0||0.72|
|1. True width is estimated between 70 and 90% of core length.|
All gold mineralized intersections of drill holes ANK-14-02 to ANK-14-06 presented very silicified metric intervals with veins and veinlets of quartz mineralized in pyrite within shear corridors with alterations in sericite, ankerite and locally fuchiste. The shear corridors can crosscut sedimentary units, mafic and felsic volcanics, gabbros and diorites. The width ranges from a few meters to several tens of meters. The regional targets have returned no significant value (greater than 0.50 g/t Au).
“The intersection of gold mineralization under all the showings discovered 5 months ago confirms a gold vector of 600 meters minimum. The final Phase 1 drill holes are focused on defining the extensions and characteristics of the various showings. The investigation of extensions is promising, especially in the sector of the Bobby showing where the ANK-14-06 drill hole intersected an anomalous gold halo for several tens of meters starting at the beginning of the hole.” comments Alain Cayer, Vice-President Exploration of GéoMégA.
