Laurion Mineral Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: LME and OTCQX: LMEFF announced today that Major Drilling of Salt Lake City, Utah have mobilized their drill onto the Bell Mountain property, and that drilling has commenced.
The drill program is composed of 1,219.2m (4,000ft.) of reverse circulation drilling (“RC”). Approximately 823m (2,700ft.) will be completed on the Sphinx Zone. Historic sampling indicates that the Sphinx Zone is approximately 300m (1,000ft.) along strike and up to 24m (75ft.) in maximum width. The Sphinx Zone dips approximately 60 degrees to the south-west and thus drilling could contribute significantly to the resource totals. The remaining RC drill holes will be on the west-facing slope of the Varga Zone.
