ROUYN-NORANDA, QUEBEC–(Marketwired – Oct. 1, 2013) – GLOBEX MINING ENTERPRISES INC. (TSX:GMX)(FRANKFURT:G1M)(OTCQX:GLBXF) is pleased to provide results from the current drill campaign on the Wood-Pandora property located in Cadillac Township, Quebec in joint venture with Osisko Mining Corporation.
What’s interesting about this is the very different business models of the 2 companies involved. Osisko is a gold miner who is looking to increase their land position and resources along this prolific gold belt. Globex on the other hand, is a company focused on developing value in its portfolio of exploration properties. With more than 100 properties, Globex focuses on optioning, royalties, joint-ventures and the outright sale of properties. Its exploration budget is relatively small and appears to be focused on those properties where it can build the most value.
Option agreements can be a good income earner for property owners. Generally the transactions involve cash and shares with the optioning company absorbing the cost of the exploration program. The owner generally retains a net smelter royalty and if certain commitments are not met, the property reverts back to the owner. Properties may be optioned over and over again with the owners benefiting from the incremental value added by exploration work performed by others on their property.
At September 25, 2013, within an expanded drill program, eighteen (18) drill holes have been completed. The drill holes are widely spaced and designed to explore the stratigraphy at depth over the entire 3.5km strike length of the Cadillac Break across the Property in zones previously untested. One of the holes was drilled in the Amm Shaft area.
We’ve included a map of the project below.
Complete assay results are now available from an additional drill hole.
Hole W-13-17 returned two gold intersections, at close proximity, with a combined core length of 11.8 metres (38.7 ft) grading 15.1 g/t Au (0.44 oz/T Au).
|From -To (m)||Width (m||)||Au g/t|
|408.7 – 409.7||0.99||116.05|
|409.7 – 411.0||1.31||20.99|
|411.0 – 412.0||1.00||15.36|
|Average: 408.7 – 412.0||3.30||47.8|
|416.5 – 417.5||1.0||12.45|
|417.5 – 419.0||1.5||2.22|
|419.0 – 420.5||1.5||2.91|
|Average: 416.5 – 420.5||4.0||5.04|
|Total: 408.7 – 420.5||11.8 (38.7 ft||)||15.1 g/t (0.44 oz/T||)|
True widths are approximately 50 to 60 % of intersected core lengths.
Results from the remaining holes will be reported when the full assay data set are available.
