Aurizon Mines Ltd. (TSX:ARZ) reported the completion of the phase two exploration program on NioGold’s Marban Block property, in Abitibi, Quebec. Results from the 31 holes drilled discovered a new high grade zone north of the Marban deposit and south og the Norlartic deposit.
As quoted in the press release:
The best results from the new zone are:
- 19.40 g/t Au over 1.2 metres on section 3600 at a vertical depth of 92 metres (MB-12-323)
- 19.21 g/t Au over 5.6 metres on section 3600 at a vertical depth of 215 metres (MB-12-324)
George Paspalas, Aurizon’s President and CEO commented:
The remaining results from the Phase Two program on the Marban Block are encouraging indicating that other structures surrounding Marban may have the potential to deliver high grade results combined with strong metal factors. An important milestone will be achieved in the near future with the completion of a first resource estimate focusing on the Marban surface deposit.
