Yorbeau Resources Inc. (TSX:YRB.A) announced an update to the company’s current drilling program at the Gamble Lake Block of its Rouyn property, including assay results of 10.2 g/t of gold over 6.0 metres, and 10.3 g/t of gold over 9.0 metres.
As quoted in the press release:
The drilling campaign started on January 10, 2012 and continues at present with one drill rig in operation. To date 21 holes and two wedges between sections 7800 E and 8250 E have been completed for a total of 8,734.9m. The Company anticipates drilling an additional 4,500m of NQ core and expects to complete the program around December. The purpose of the program is to generate the data necessary to permit the preparation of a resource estimate on the Lake Gamble Block compliant with NI 43-101.
Yorbeau President and CEO David Crevier, commented:
In spite of the sampling challenges that we are experiencing at Lac Gamble, we are excited with the results obtained at shallow depth where we can see a significant 400 metre strike length of apparently continuous gold mineralization at a 100 metre depth. These results, combined with the wide intercept at depth in holes 12-GA-579 and 579-W1B, set the stage for future exciting developments at our Rouyn property.
