More positive results from DIOS 2016 Heberto Gold drilling


MONTRÉAL, QUEBEC, CANADA –Management of DIOS EXPLORATION is very pleased to report additional positive results from 2016 recent drilling on wholly-owned (no royalties) HEBERTO.  Hole 13 hit 2.05 grams gold per tonne over 7.25 m in a 20.25 m true thickness intercept of 1 g/t gold (or 0.63 g/t gold over 41 m)  and hole 14 hit 1.85 grams gold per tonne over 7.10 m. Both holes intersected potassic shear zones hosting 1-2% disseminated pyrite (magnetite) with adjacent 2-3% cm pyrite-magnetite-quartz stringers. See 2016 drilling results:

(1) June 2016 new assays, fire assay with gravimetric finish over 3 g

Further drilling is planned.  Reassays are pending.  Also, further core sections will be sampled in extents of gold zones at least in holes 5, 6, 9, 10, 11 and 12.

Recent 2016 drilling (1532 m) targeted vicinities of HEBERTO gold showing (5.2 g/t gold over 5 m) and a gold-bearing corridor over a 700 meter strike length.  Along central section, a shallower-dipping pyrite-magnetite-hematite-quartz stringers richer system appears developed.   HEBERTO major gold system is located within a 5 X 8 km high potential gold-in-outcrop area, with several km scale gold targets like HEBERTO to be drilled, 50 km south of Goldcorp's Eleonore world class gold mine and 20 km west of Clearwater gold deposit, James Bay Eeyou Istchee, QC. 

Due to field conditions, hole 20 began directly in the diorite and missed the targeted tonalite/diorite contact.  A good potential to the southwest and at depth will be tested with further drilling, among others.  One-meter core samples were assayed at ALS-Global laboratory in Val D’Or, Quebec, for gold (Au-AA23 and fire assay with gravimetric finish over 3 g) with industry standards  quality control. Technical data was reviewed by Harold Desbiens, M.Sc. Geo 43-101 QP.
