Yorbeau initiates diamond drilling program on the Scott Lake project
Montréal, May 6, 2015 - Yorbeau Resources Inc.(TSX: YRB.A) (the “Company” or “Yorbeau”) is pleased to announce that drilling at the Scott Lake Project in the Chibougamau mining camp of Quebec started today with one drill rig.
The Scott Lake property, 100% owned by Yorbeau, already hosts a number of polymetallic massive sulphide lenses. These represent combined inferred resources of 5.45 million tonnes grading 1.2% copper, 4.6% zinc, 0.2 g/t gold and 34 g/t silver, using an NSR cut-off of $80 per tonne (Technical Report prepared by Roscoe Postle Associates and filed by Cogitore Resources in 2011).
Recent interpretation work at Scott Lake led to the identification of a fault that seems to cut off the West Lens with an apparent left-handed displacement (to the south), and of a strong conductor located precisely where the West lens (764,000 tonnes grading 0.8% copper, 9.8% zinc, 0.2 g/t gold and 38 g/t silver) seems to have been displaced. This sector is centered between the West Lens and the deeper CFO Lens (377,000 tonnes grading 2.4% copper, 4.8 % zinc, 0.3 g/t gold and 43 g/t silver). In addition, this target area is significantly located where there is an important undrilled gap between the West and CFO lenses. The current drilling program will be specifically targeting the geophysical conductor in this sector. Considering that the best grades in the Scott deposit are located in the vicinity of the interpreted fault, Yorbeau management believes that this target could become a game changer for the project and for Yorbeau.
Work is carried out by the personnel of Yorbeau, under the supervision of Gérald Riverin, Ph D., P.Geo. He is a qualified person (as defined by National Instrument 43-101) and has more than 38 years of experience in mineral exploration.
