DIOS DISCOVERS A MAJOR GOLD TARGET IN VOLCANICS HOSTING A LARGE AIRBORNE IP ON K2, WSW OF AZIMUT’S DISCOVERY
Montreal, Quebec, Canada –Dios Exploration Inc. is very pleased to have uncovered a major 3 km long gold glacial train (B-horizon and boulders) targeting a significant source in a large volcanic hosted airborne IP on wholly-owned K2 property, west-southwest of Azimut’s Elmer gold property, James Bay Eeyou Istchee, QC.
The Sesame gold Target is a 2 km long by 200-400 m wide NE striking airborne IP anomaly, north of Kali pluton, 3.2 km up-ice of crumbly sericite enriched and carbonated felsic floats with 1-3% pyrite & quartz stringers that yielded up to 6.72 g/t Au, 29 g/t Ag, 0.2 %Cu, in perfect line up-ice of Wi-target goldbearing glacial drumlins (10-283 ppb Au in B-horizon). The gold train is made up of 3 such gold-in-soil clusters. See map.
An independent geophysicist interpreted the Sesame anomaly as a possible hydrothermal alteration zone with minor disseminated sulfides.
M.J. Girard, president of Dios, stated: “We are very excited with Sesame airborne IP in volcanics, targeted by a 3 km long gold glacial train (boulders and B horizon). Recent drilling at WI target had not explain the source of nearby soft crumbly mineralized and sericite enriched felsic volcanics up to 6.72 g/t Au. Good gold intercepts were hit (8.92 g/t gold over 1 m and 3.78 g/t on 1 m) at diorite contacts, but no volcanics were found. With our systematic sampling data of available B-horizon material, we pursued our research work and found the gold train leading to Sesame anomaly. We are looking for a major gold deposit, such as Doyon or Bousquet.”.
Sesame occurs within same favourable rhyodacite package hosting most of Elmer Lake sulfidic volcanogenic mineralization (1-5% pyrite, locally up to 10-50%), strongly associated with moderate to high sericitization & moderate chloritization-carbonatization.
Effectively, previous rock geochemistry by Barrick outlined a 10 km long calcalkaline felsic sequence of folded dacites and 3 rhyolite cycles. Their most westward sampling, 4 km NE of Dios’ Sesame IP target, suggests Sesame is associated with the younger cycle 3 rhyolite, laterally hosting the Silver and West zones on Elmer property (up to 3.1 g/t Au, 18 g/t Ag and up to 4.65g/t Au, 7% Cu, 160 g/t Ag) and the Lac Boulder showing (3.57 g/t Au, 6.9 g/t Ag). The swampy Sesame target-area, directly north of synvolcanic Kali tonalite and SE of Sesame QFP, is not outcropping. Drilling is planned in the short term.
