Sirios Resources Inc.
Sirios Resources Inc.'s goal is to discover world-class gold deposits in the James Bay region of Quebec in eastern Canada. Sirios owns several high potential projects such as Cheechoo, Aquilon and Pontax. The Company's flagship project is the Cheechoo gold project which is adjacent to the property of the Eleonore gold mine of Goldcorp.
Sirios' team conceives its own exploration projects, works systematically and is aware of new technological development concerning mining exploration.
Sirios holds 100 % interest in:
Cheechoo Gold Project, Eeyou Istchee James Bay, Quebec, Canada
Sirios' Cheechoo gold property comprises 145 claims covering approximately 75 sq. km, is adjacent to the east of the Eleonore gold mine owned by Goldcorp, and 320 km north of Matagami, in Eeyou Istchee James Bay, Quebec.
Sirios' gold discovery began in 2010 with prospecting that generated numerous rock grab samples grading from 0.1 to 2.6 g/t Au. The property was drilled for the first time in 2012. The ensuing drilling programs have lead to the delineation of a large low grade (between 0.2 g/t and 0.8 g/t) gold mineralized envelope which extends now for more than a kilometer in strike length by 300 to 450 meters wide and down to more than 340 meters of vertical depth. Multiple intervals of 20 plus meters with grades between 1 and 3 g/t gold were found, including shorter high grade intervals. Examples of some good results are: 12.1g/t Au over 20.30 m; 13.4 g/t Au over 9.6 m; 6.2 g/t Au over 26.1 m; 15 g/t Au over 12.35 m; 1.2 g/t Au over 160 m; 37.2 g/t Au over 4.1 m.
In 2015, metallurgical tests were conducted on samples with different gold head grade. A high gold gravity recovery rate varying between 70% and 76% was obtained in each of the samples, increasing up to 93% when combined with cyanidation leaching.
The 2016 Summer-Autumn drilling campaign totalizes 9,359 metres and succeeded to locate new high-grade gold zones.
Sirios resumed diamond drilling on the Cheechoo property in February 2017. The drill program is currently in progress and 2,026 metres spread over 7 drill holes have been completed as of March 6.
Sirios won the Quebec Discovery of the Year Award in 2016 with this project and attracted equity investments from Osisko and Goldcorp – the latter owns 19.9% partially diluted of Sirios' shares.
Aquilon Gold Project, James Bay, Quebec, Canada
Sirios' Aquilon property comprises 104 claims covering approximately 50 sq. km and located south of the LA-1 hydro-electrical complex, in James Bay, Quebec. This property hosts numerous very high grades gold showings discovered originally by Sirios.
In 2010, Sirios completed a 1,926-metre surface drilling program of 35 very short vertical drill holes targeting the Lingo (10), Moman (14), Fleur De Lys (11) and Muscovite showings. In 2016, Sirios bought back the rest of interest from its partner and plan to restart the project.
Best results include:
Previous drill results which returned over 1.0 ounce per ton (34.29 g/t) on the Lingo vein, include:
