QMX Gold Continues To Intersect Strong Mineralization At Bonnefond, Intersecting 39.5 g/t Au Over 2.4 Metres And 31.5 g/t Au Over 1.6 Metres

TORONTO, Jan. 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- QMX Gold Corporation (“QMX” or the “Company”) (TSX:V:QMX) is pleased to report the results from its on-going Bonnefond drilling program (Figure 1), on the Val d’Or East Zone of QMX’s extensive land package in Val d’Or, Quebec (Figure 2). These thirteen (13) holes cover results from the first half of the on-going definition drilling program on the Bonnefond project. This program's goal is to support an initial resource estimate schedule for late Spring 2019.

Highlights include:

In the Tonalitic Plug (lengths are measured along the holes):

  • Drill hole 17315-18-063 returned 1.97 g/t Au over 87.5m, including 3.31 g/t Au over 26.8m and 31.55 g/t Au over 1.6m.
  • Drill hole 17315-18-067 returned 1.94 g/t Au over 143.7m, including 12.34 g/t Au over 8.1m.
  • Drill hole 17315-18-072 returned 1.92 g/t Au over 147.6, including 5.11 g/t Au over 4.0m.

Shear Zone in Volcanics (lengths are measured along the holes):

  • Drill hole 17315-18-063 returned 9.01 g/t Au over 3.4m
  • Drill hole 17315-18-065 returned 11.95 g/t Au over 8.0m including 39.49 g/t over 2.4m, and 5.54 g/t Au over 1.4m.
  • Drill hole 17315-18-069 returned 12.23 g/t Au over 3.2m and 4.35 g/t over 3.9m.
  • Drill hole 17315-18-070 returned 7.20 g/t Au over 2.5m.
  • Drill hole 17315-18-072 returned 1.69 g/t Au over 40.9m including 3.90g/t Au over 6.2m and 3.14 g/t au over 7.9m.
  • Drill hole 17315-18-073 returned 6.06 g/t au over 5.0m.

These results are part of a 50m x 50m infill drilling program on the western side of the Tonalite intrusion between the surface and 400m depth. This program successfully confirm and support the grades and the continuity of the mineralisation in the Bonnefond intrusive with intercepts returning 1.97 g/t Au over 87.5m, including 3.31 g/t Au over 26.8m and 31.55 g/t Au over 1.6m in drill hole 17315-18-063; 1.94 g/t Au over 143.7m, including 12.34 g/t Au over 8.1m in drill hole 17315-18-067 and 1.92 g/t Au over 147.6m in drill hole 17315-18-072. The average true width of the mineralized envelope is 60m and extends 300m east-west.

This program also confirmed the continuity and grade in the shear zones south of the Bonnefond intrusive close to surface. Results from this environment include 9.01 g/t Au over 3.4m in drill hole 17315-18-063 and 11.95 g/t Au over 8.0m including 39.49 g/t over 2.4m and 5.54 g/t Au over 1.4m in drill hole 17315-18-065.

Drill hole 17315-18-072 intercepted 1.69 g/t Au over 40.9m including 3.90g/t Au over 6.2m and 3.14 g/t au over 7.9m in one of the shear zones to the north of the Bonnefond intrusion, increasing the potential in this area for the discovery of additional mineralized zones close to surface.

Dr. Andreas Rompel, Vice President Exploration, commented, “We are excited and impressed by these results as they confirm the high-grade nature of the mineralization in and around the Bonnefond target. These results will feature well when we initiate the resource estimation process in this highly prolific area.”

2019 Winter Drilling Program

QMX is currently drilling the last 2,500m of the definition drilling campaign to support an initial resource estimate scheduled for late Spring 2019.

Quality Control

During the drilling program, assay samples were taken from the NQ core and sawed in half. One half is sent to Swaslab Ltd. or Agat Laboratories. Both are certified commercial laboratories. The other half of the core is retained for future reference. A strict quality assurance and quality control program was applied to all samples; which included insertion of mineralized standards, blank samples and duplicates inside each batch of 20 samples. The gold analyses were completed by fire-assay with an atomic absorption finish on 50 grams of material. Repeats were carried out by fire-assay with a gravimetric finish on each sample containing 5.0 g/t Au or more. The gold analyses were undertaken by fire-assay on 50 grams of pulp with an atomic absorption finish. Repeats were carried out by fire-assay with a gravimetric finish on each sample containing 5.0 g/t Au or more.
