Zenyatta Ventures Ltd. (TSXV:ZEN) reported that in-fill drilling on the East and West pipes of the Albany Graphite Deposit in northern Ontario, Canada, continues to intersect wide zones of graphite mineralization.
As quoted in the press release:
To date, 13 holes have been drilled on the West pipe and 25 holes have been drilled on East pipe. The current drill campaign contemplates an additional 8-10 definition holes on both pipes and 3 large-diameter (HQ) holes on the East pipe to recover a 5 tonne bulk sample for metallurgical test work. As of the date of this news release, the first metallurgical hole (M01) drilled on the East pipe had intersected multiple zones of graphite breccia mineralization over 464 metres (“m”).
Zenyatta Ventures President and CEO Aubrey Eveleigh said:
We are very pleased to see initial drill holes on the West pipe confirming the existence of a second large graphite breccia body. The West pipe appears to be larger in diameter than the East pipe and closely reflects the circular conductivity anomaly defined by a ground EM (‘electromagnetic’) survey. Drilling to date on the West pipe has not yet identified the western limit of mineralization. Additional holes will be required before the overall dimension can be established.
