Lac Lessard Project Drilling High-Priority VTEM Targets Completed

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 12, 2015) - Darnley Bay Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:DBL) and Eastmain Resources Inc. (TSX:ER) announced the completion of a phase-one drilling program to test highly-prospective VTEM geophysical targets at its Lac Lessard project. The program, funded by Darnley Bay Resources Ltd., as part of its first-year work commitment to an option agreement, whereby DBL can earn 50% of the project, consisted of 11 drill holes (1,995 metres) of heli-supported diamond drilling.


  • 10 VTEM targets drill-tested
  • 9 of 11 drill holes intersected the Crete-du-Coq ultramafic intrusion
  • Drill hole LL15-02 intersected disseminated sulphides over 13.8 metres with semi-massive sulphides over 1.8 metres in VTEM target Mx1b
  • Assay data is pending for 728 split-core samples

10 VTEM geophysical targets coincident with the Crete-du-Coq ultramafic intrusion were tested during the drill program. Field work completed during the summer of 2014 delineated a number of areas containing disseminated sulphides, with elevated nickel-copper-PGM values within this layered ultramafic intrusion. Nine of eleven holes drilled intersected layered pyroxenite and gabbro units comprising the Crete-du-Coq intrusion. Moderate to strong rock alteration, consisting of serpentine, talc and magnetite was observed in drill core. Associated disseminated sulphides include pyrrhotite, pyrite and chalcopyrite.

Drill hole LL15-02, which tested VTEM conductor Mx1b, intersected 13.8 metres of disseminated sulphide (1 to 5% pyrrhotite, pyrite, chalcopyrite) within the ultramafic intrusion. This unit includes a 1.8-metre-wide interval ranging from 5 to 20% sulphide at a depth of 101.7 metres. 728 split-core samples have been submitted for assay; results are pending.
