Laurion Mineral Exploration Inc. (OTCQX: LMEFF & TSX-V: LME.V) announced results from the Company’s July 2011 drill program on the Tehya and Asha polymetallic base metal targets at its Sturgeon River Property, Beardmore, Ontario.
Two of the drill holes (179m) from this program examined the extent of the Tehya Zone, one drill hole at depth below the original showing (LME11-024), and one drill hole (LME11-025) was located 175m to the northeast of LME11-024 and on the projected 800 metre strike of the Tehya Zone between drill hole LME10-07 and drill hole LME11-017.
The Asha Zone was tested for the first time with six diamond drill holes totalling 1,360 metres (LME11-018 to LME11-023) targeting multiple strong chargeability anomalies identified in a ground geophysical survey completed in Q1-2011. Ninety-two samples were collected in September 2010 in a comprehensive prospecting program conducted over the Asha Zone , which resulted in gold values as high as 9.87 g/t Au, and 136 g/t Ag.
Highlight assay results from this most recent drill program include 7.59 g/t Au, 2.0 g/t Ag and 1.02% Zn over 1.26m and 9.91g/t Au and 2.8g/t Ag over 1.0m.
