MONTREAL, QUEBEC–(Marketwired – Feb. 9, 2016) –
Management of SIRIOS (TSX VENTURE:SOI) announces a new geological gold unit has been intersected in the Cheechoo property, Eeyoun Istchee James Bay. This unit was intersected in hole #40 at a depth of 296 m (figure 1). It is an altered and mineralized biotite schist with 1 to 3% of pyrrhotite and arsenopyrite disseminated on total thickness of the 36 metres unit. (True thickness unknown). The schist is cross-cut here and there by small decimetric to metric pegmatite dykes. Five specks of visible gold were observed between 315.5 m and 327 m in the schist and pegmatite, confirming thus the auriferous nature of the unit (figure 2). Assays results for gold from this unit will be available in a few weeks and will determine its gold grade. Visible gold was also observed in tonalite, elsewhere in the same drill hole as well as in drill hole #41 which is currently underway (figure 3), and drill holes #32 and #34.
The diamond drilling program, which began in mid-January, is ongoing. As of today, 10 drill holes (#31 to 40) have been completed, for a total of 1,460 metres (figure 4).
