INTERSECTS 26.8 G/T AU OVER 6.8 M ON CHEECHOO
Sirios Resources Inc. (SOI.V) released assays results from the extension of two drill holes on the Cheechoo gold property. The extension of drill hole No. 125 (125E) intersected a zone of veining and quartz-feldspar breccias, which assayed 26.8 grams per tonne Au over 6.8 metres, including an interval of 69.8 g/t Au over 2.5 m. This intersection results in a 40-metre extension below the vein of drill hole No. 112, which assayed 41.0 g/t Au over 8.0 m (press release of Feb. 14, 2018). It is oriented north-northwest, subvertically dipping, which is consistent with the structural data obtained from the borehole logging survey in drill hole No. 112. The true width of the intersection is estimated at 3.6 metres. Drill hole No. 125E was completed to a depth of 451 m in auriferous tonalite material.

The extension of drill hole No. 20 (20E) intersected two decimetric veins (quartz-feldspar) up dip and similar to drill hole No. 112. Although, they did not yield significant gold grades, the mineralized zone remains open in all directions.
Results of 20 additional drill holes recently received are currently being interpreted and results will be released shortly. Assay results of the remaining 28 drill holes, out of 58 completed in 2018 for a total of 15,720 metres, are still pending. A table of collar co-ordinates is available on the Sirios website.
Sirios's 100-per-cent-owned Cheechoo property is located at Eeyou Istchee James Bay, Quebec, approximately 800 kilometres north of Montreal, 200 km east of Wemindji and less than 10 km from Goldcorp's Eleonore gold mine.
