Canadian Metals announce the results of its diamond drilling program at Langis. A total of 533m has been drilled in 16 holes, said company. The campaign shows the continuity of the high-SiO2 sandstone in the existing mineral resource area. The company has achieved the extension of mineralized sandstone 40m to the north where PL-17-04 intersected 15 meters at 98.31% SiO2. The three holes drilled in the northern part show poorly graded sandstone in the bottom, indicating the northern limit of the high-grade sandstone.
Company said that the fault systems can be observed and followed on several holes in the northeast, and thus can be modeled. All the holes have intersected high silica sandstone, with SiO2 intervals above 97.5% in each hole. It is important to mention that the drilling contractor has systematically drilled a 3 meters casing at each collar, the recovered core show high-quality sandstone but are not assayed, overburden is very thin to nil in many holes.
Disclosed length are core length, true thickness for vertical holes it about 95% while the true thickness for inclined holes represent 65 to 75% of intersection. The values disclosed are normalized results as total oxides from SGS Lakefield laboratory were above 100%. (i.e. Original %SiO2 values are higher)
“The Northeastern sector has delivered good results and present mineralization at surface. The intervals intersected shows that the Langis silica deposit delivers significant and constant results which gives us comfort we need to move this project forward to the next step” said Hubert Vallée, President & CEO of Canadian Metals.
Canadian Metals is focused on the development of its Langis project, a high-purity silica deposit located in the province of Quebec. The Company is rapidly positioning itself as a supplier of high purity silica and silicon alloy in North America. Silicon based materials can be formulated to provide a broad range of products from more durable, faster building materials with smarter electronic devices, solar panels and more efficient wind turbines.
