MONTREAL, QUEBEC–(CCNMatthews – April 5, 2006) – SIRIOS RESOURCES INC. (TSX VENTURE:SOI) received the final bottom lake sediment survey report on its wholly-owned KUKAMES property. The major gold anomaly reported on November 10, 2005 has been confirmed and detailed by a second series of analysis by neutron activation as well as other checks. The property is located in the OPINACA area where Goldcorp recently completed the acquisition of the ELEONORE gold deposit from Virginia Gold Mines, James Bay, Quebec.
The latest results confirmed a major regional linear gold anomaly that can be divided in three several kilometres long anomalous zones in the western part of the KUKAMES property. Another distinct gold anomaly occurs in its eastern part. Bismuth, tellurium, silver and tin also occur locally in association with the gold anomalies. The project was sampled in 295 sampling areas, in the scope of a larger lake sediment sampling campaign.
The independent report concluded that the signature of the Kukames anomaly is of the same intensity and size, although different, as the one observed at the ELEONORE discovery.
The lake sediment geochemical report on the KUKAMES project was produced by Mr. Rejean Girard, Geo. and Qualified Person of IOS Services Geoscientifiques inc (IOS) from Chicoutimi. He also supervised the sampling processes. His report mentions that :
“The sediments of the KUKAMES property are highly and anomalously enriched in gold, with more than 40% of the samples above the detection limit. That enrichment was observed in the inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry and the neutron activation methods…”
“The gold distribution in the field is relatively well structured…”
“The southwestern limit of the property hosts a chain of anomalies. This distribution is parallel to the area tectonic grain, to a NW structure known to be gold bearing at the regional scale, as well as to the hydrographic pattern characterized by a series of parallel fractures. It is interesting to observe that this area is approximately coincidental with the proposed suture between the Opinaca and LaGrande geological Sub-provinces…”
“The different aspects of the present gold distribution suggest a local source. Considering the well-structured high values, the results fully warrant the planning of a systematic exploration campaign of the Kukames property…”
As follow-up, SIRIOS has planned a strong 2006 summer exploration programme with a $ 800,000 budget for its wholly-owned Opinaca region projects.
The recent staking of 160 claims should fully cover some new target areas; the KUKAMES property now hosts 1,133 claims for 600 square-km (148,000 acres).
