Philippe Cloutier, CEO of Cartier Resources (V.ECR), understands that investors want a company to do what it says it is going to do. At the Chimo Mine project in Quebec, Cartier developed a plan which Cloutier was confident would position the past-producing mine for a new life as a gold producer.
The junior mining industry lives and dies by the press release. The problem is that press releases often fail to communicate the importance of particular information. So we were delighted to receive a note from Renforth Resources which added some analysis to today’s press release.
Renforth Resources Inc. (CSE:RFR)(OTC Pink:RFHRF) (“Renforth” or the “Company”) is pleased to share with our shareholders recent results from additional sampling of a Discovery Vein drill hole from November 2019. This resampling results in new assay information, including 8.5m of 0.87 g/t Au at a depth of only 49.5m down the hole, which was not previously known to be mineralized. This shallow mineralization was included in a total of 9.8m of mineralization the new data adds to the drill hole. The additional sampling was undertaken in order to obtain quarter cuts of certain samples which were taken in November 2019 but not processed due to equipment issues. In taking the quarter cut samples Renforth’s geologist decided to take “contingency” samples of greywacke in order close off mineralized intercepts. These contingency samples unexpectedly gave gold values in assay, including 2.3 g/t Au over 2m between 49.5 and 51.5m as measured in the core box. The core box in question is pictured below. The assumption in the field was that the sample would come back with a zero value, based on visual inspection of the core as compared to other core drilled in other areas. Renforth has discovered that this assumption is incorrect in the Discovery Veins.
