Sirios Resources (SOI) reported assay results from channel samples collected last summer, which included 2.65 g/t Au over 11.0 metres at the Cheechoo project.
The company noted that this confirms the extension of gold mineralization beyond the tonalite and into the meta-greywackes outside of the conceptual pit of the 2020 mineral resource estimate (MRE). These results highlight a new type of gold mineralization hosted in metasediments.
In August and September, Sirios carried out trenching and channel sampling in the metasediments to the east of the conceptual pit of the Cheechoo gold deposit. A total of 218 samples from 216 metres of channels were sent to the ALS laboratory in Val-d’Or for analysis.
The high-grade gold results obtained during this program are hosted in metasediments with 2 per cent to 3 per cent pyrrhotite and arsenopyrite, as well as millimetric quartz-feldspar veinlets, which represents a new geological context for gold mineralization for the Cheechoo deposit.

Intrusive rocks (tonalite and pegmatite) were previously thought to be the only host rocks for gold mineralization at the deposit. The discovery of these new high-grade gold zones in the metasediments now confirms the presence of gold mineralization more than 400 metres outside of the tonalite.
Sirios’ President and CEO, Dominique Doucet, P.Eng. sat down with Sabrina Cuthbert to discuss the news.
Sirios Resources Inc. is a pioneer in the discovery of significant gold deposits in Eeyou Istchee James Bay, Quebec, focusing primarily on its Cheechoo gold discovery while actively exploring the gold potential of its other properties.
Sirios Resources Inc. (SOI) is unchanged, trading at C$0.05 per share.
