TORONTO, July 30, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- QMX Gold Corporation (“QMX” or the “Company”) (TSX:V:QMX) is pleased to announce the release of a National Instrument 43-101: Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”) resource estimate (the “2019 MRE”) on its Bonnefond South property, located approximately 25 km to the east of Val d'Or, Quebec. The 2019 MRE was completed independently by BBA Inc. in accordance with the NI 43-101 guidelines. A summary of the resource by zone is presented in Table 1.
“We are very excited to report a resource with its largest part already being in the Indicated category”, says Dr. Andreas Rompel, VP Exploration. “The total ounces were inline with our expectations, however, we are thrilled that the grades were between 1.69 and 1.87 g/t, which compares favourably to our expectations and with other open pit operations in the Abitibi.”
“The QMX team is pleased to release our maiden resource for Bonnefond, which we just started drilling in early 2017”, stated Brad Humphrey, President and CEO. “I am proud of our exploration team and the fact that the majority of this initial resource already falls into the Indicated confidence category, a strong testament to the quality of their work. It is also important to note that this is just one of our many targets across our extensive land package in the Val d’Or East mining camp and that the Bonnefond deposit is located less than 25 km from our Aurbel mill, which we anticipate to commence custom milling in the coming months.”
The technical report related to the 2019 MRE will be filed on SEDAR at www.SEDAR.com within 45 days.

Notes to the MRE Table:
Bonnefond South Deposit
The Bonnefond South deposit is located on the Eastern portion of QMX Gold’s land package East of Val d’Or (Figure 1). Originally discovered by Aur Resources at the end of the 90's, QMX started drilling the Bonnefond intrusive in 2017 and has since completed 60 drill holes for a total of 25,570m. All holes are used for the 2019 MRE.
Indicated Resources are hosted by the Bonnefond Intrusive which is a tonalitic intrusion. The intrusion dips to the north-east and has a strike-length of 300 metres, averaging 60 to 70 metres in width. Gold is associated with sheared and tensional quartz-tourmaline veins and strong sericite-albite-fuchsite alteration. Figure 2 shows a typical cross section of the deposit.
Inferred Resources are located both within the Bonnefond intrusive and in a series of shear zones to the south in the surrounding volcanic rocks. The current interpretation suggests the shear zones are oriented east-west and dip at approximately 45 degrees. The mineralized shear zones are part of a larger deformation corridor which extends through the New Louvre and Bevcon deposits, two of QMX's other exploration targets in the area.
QMX is currently planning its next drilling campaign on the Bonnefond property. The program will focus on bringing inferred resources in the Intrusion up to the indicated resource confidence level and on further evaluation of the potential in the shear zones surrounding the intrusion.
