Fury Gold (Ticker: FURY) recently provided results for the final three 2022 core drill holes at the Eau Claire project located in the Eeyou Istchee Territory in the James Bay region of Quebec. The 2022 drill program successfully expanded the high-grade gold mineralized footprint at the Hinge Target, Gap Zone, and eastern expansion target areas. To date, the eleven holes drilled into the Hinge Target have had a hit rate of nearly 55% above the Eau Claire underground measured and indicated resource grade of 6.3 g/t gold and over 80% above the underground cut-off grade of 2.5 g/t gold. Collectively, these results have provided a clear focus for deposit expansion moving forward into 2023.
Drill hole 22EC-059 was drilled oblique to all other drilling at the Hinge Target (at an angle of 150 degrees) and provides confirmation of the current geological interpretation. The hole intercepted eight zones of gold mineralization across 350 metres (m) drilled width including 1.50m of 22.77 g/t gold, 1.50m of 15.30 g/t gold and 1.50m of 6.46 g/t gold. The reported intercepts extend the gold mineralization and represent a 100m offset to the west and 150m vertical offset of the defined shallow 850 Zone within the Hinge Target. Notably, the reported intercept of 1.50m of 22.77 g/t gold at a downhole depth of 181.5m, approximately 155m below surface, is one of the shallowest high-grade intercepts to date within the Hinge Target zone.
“Fury is pleased to announce the final drill results from our 2022 drill program at Eau Claire, as these results further confirm our thesis that the Eau Claire resource is open for significant expansion. Importantly, we have extended the mineralized footprint of the resource at the Hinge Target, Gap Zone, and eastern expansion, and have intercepted substantial gold grades at the Percival Main zone, located 14 km from Eau Claire, which warrant follow-up work,” commented Tim Clark, CEO of Fury. “The results of our program at Eau Claire are extremely encouraging and our 2023 plans are being reviewed and will be announced in the coming weeks.”
