Cartier Resources Inc., (TSX VENTURE:V.ECR) is pleased to announce that it will commence drilling on the eastern bloc of the Chimo Mine property, situated 45 km east of Val-d’Or. The programme’s objective is to explore, near surface, two target areas as defined by the eastern extension of the 5M zone.

The Chimo Mine produced 379,012 ounces of gold (Source: MRNF, DV 85-05 to 97-01) of which two thirds were extracted from the 5M zone. Drilling of the eastern extension of this zone, just before mine closure, discovered two new zones with characteristics similar to the 5M zone such as; smoky and white quartz veining with visible gold, hosted within disseminated gold mineralisation in sheared basaltic flows altered to chlorite, biotite and graphite zones.
