Focal level Graphite Inc. [FMS-TSXV; FCSMF-OTCQB] reported outcomes for the first 5 drill holes from the company’s fall 2020 infill and extension core drilling program at its 100%-owned Lac Tetepisca graphite challenge located southwest of the Manicouagan reservoir in the Cote-Nord administrative bother of Quebec.
The fall 2020 drilling program comprised 30 HQ-diameter holes (full: 5.437 metres) designed to full the systematic attempting out of the Manicouagan-Ouest graphitic hall (MOCG). Results for the closing 25 drill holes will seemingly be launched over the arrival weeks.
Within the autumn of 2020, 30 HQ-diameter holes had been drilled to check the continuity of the graphitic mineralization within the MOCG with respect to the vary of graphitic carbon thicknesses and grades. Analytical outcomes for the first 5 holes had been bought.
The finest intersection was once in Hole LT-20-80, drilled at minus 45 degrees to a depth of 201 metres on Line 1+00 North, which intersected 92.6 metres grading 12.7% graphitic carbon (Cg) (44.2-136.8 metres), at the side of 49.4 metres grading 16.2% Cg (81.3-130.7 metres); and 11.45 metres grading 16.1% Cg (59.45-70.9 metres).
The MOCG is defined by a linear kilometre-long flooring geophysical magnetic (MAG) — electromagnetic (EM) anomaly that trends north 35 degrees. Since 2014, Focal level has tested the MOCG with 106 holes drilled over a 1.4-km strike length for a full of 16,468 metres. The predominant graphite-bearing zone is 85 metres vast on average, with drilling real down to roughly 150 metres vertical.
“The outcomes from the first 5 holes of our fall 2020 drilling program at Lac Tetepisca pork up our belief that the lateral and strike-length continuity of the graphite mineralization within the Manicouagan-Ouest graphitic hall extends to a vertical depth of about 150 metres,” acknowledged Marc Roy, president and CEO. “These outcomes continue to repeat stunning continuity in graphite mineralization grades and thicknesses within the MOCG, and we behold forward to seeing the outcomes from the relaxation of the holes that had been drilled.”
As soon as the complete outcomes from the autumn 2020 drilling program are compiled, they’re going to produce the root of Focal level’s maiden mineral resource estimate for the Lac Tetepisca Mission, which is being intriguing by DRA Americas Inc. and is anticipated to be carried out in the arrival months.
