Foran Mining Corporation has reported initial results from four holes of the ongoing summer resource definition drill program at their McIlvenna Bay zinc copper deposit 65 kilometers west of Flin Flon. Their President and CEO Patrick Soares says several high grade intersections were encountered in these first four holes confirming the consistency of the grade of the mineralization in this area of the McIlvenna Bay deposit. He says they currently have three drills on site and plan to complete over 12 thousand meters of drilling during this field season which is expected to last until the end of September.
These first four holes are a continuation of the drilling from the 2018 winter program and target the central part of the deposit. They report drilling continues to intersect significant high grade zones of mineralization including intersecting 9.4 percent zinc over 6.1 meters.
