Yorbeau Announces Beginning of Drilling Program at KB Project in Chibougamau Camp, Quebec
The KB project is highly prospective for zinc and copper due to the presence of a historic high–grade prospect associated with a massive sulphide stratigraphic horizon hosted within mafic and felsic volcanics. The property appears to have a geological setting similar to that found at the past producing Lemoine mine and at Yorbeau's Scott project, including high grade VMS-style mineralization, presence of felsic tuffs and potential for high synvolcanic heat flow resulting from the proximity of the Lac Doré Complex (Figure 1).
The current drilling program is a follow-up on a 2019 drilling data compilation that to led to a better understanding of stratigraphy and particularly the location of the KB prospective horizon (see news release dated
In 2019, hole KB-02 was drilled 25 metres below the Icon showing to better understand the geometry, stratigraphy and confirms historical grades obtained by Icon Sullivan in 1967. KB-02 intersected 1.4 meters of massive sulfides grading 0.9% copper, 10.5% zinc, 0.1 g/t gold and 34 g/t silver. Borehole geophysics modeling shows a 150 metre by 300 metre strongly conductive plate located along the KB horizon at a 200 metre depth east of the Icon showing (Figure 3).
Hole KB-05 intercepted another prospective horizon located 100 metres south of KB horizon, returning 2.8% copper, 1.3% zinc, 0.3 g/t gold and 30 g/t silver over 0.2 metres. This new horizon, called KB south, corresponds to a semi-massive sulfides zone hosted by an intermediate bedded tuff. Mineralization is open to the east where a borehole geophysical plate has been modelized.
This target corresponds to the eastern part of the KB horizon that has been shifted by a NNE trending fault and where several untested VTEM anomalies are located.
