Cartier Drills Massive Sulphides Grading up to 10.4% Cu, 1.4% Zn, 109 g/t Ag, 3.6 g/t Au on the Fringes Of IPower3DTM Anomaly on Langlade Deposit / Cadillac Extension Property
Cartier Resources Inc. (TSX-V: ECR) (“Cartier”)
announce the first results from the second phase drill programme conducted on
its Langlade deposit on the Cadillac Extension property. One interval of massive
sulphide returned up to 10.4% Cu,
1.4% Zn, 109 g/t Ag and 3.6 g/t Au over 0.6 meters
within a wider 50-meter zone of low
grade disseminated sulphides.
The company also announces positive
results of an IPower3DTM
survey completed over an area of 4
square-kilometers covering the current Langlade drilling area. The survey highlighted ten priority targets
that may host disseminated or massive sulphides in an
area that remains untested.
“This large conductive anomaly is
situated immediately next to the recently intersected massive sulphides and is
an important target area for Cartier” commented Philippe Cloutier, President
and CEO. “The drill rig will rapidly be mobilized on these high quality targets
adjacent to the Langlade deposit”.
to the IPower3DTM
survey (An Abitibi Geophysics Inc. registered
configuration was conceived in order to maximize the sensitivity of the induced
polarization method at two levels:
Readings are taken in
multiple directions in order to obtain maximal sensitivity regardless of the
orientation of the mineralized zones. Approximately 10 times more data is
collected in the field with the IPower3DTM
configuration compared to
the traditional 2D array.
The values of the
apparent chargeability readings from IPower3DTM
enable the detection
of anomalies which would otherwise be too weak with respect to background
values. The depth of investigation and
the capacity to traverse conductive overburden is therefore greatly enhanced.
On the Langlade survey the product of the data
inversion from 27 040 readings of apparent resistivity and chargeability is
a 3D database of the bedrock resistivity and chargeability.

remainder of the assays are pending:
Quality Assurance /
The exploration program and the technical information presented in this
press release have been reviewed and approved by Mr. Philippe Berthelot, P.
Geo., and Vice President Exploration for Cartier. Mr. Berthelot is a qualified
person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. The Cadillac Extension
exploration program is conducted under the supervision of Mr. Berthelot.
Cartier has implemented and adheres to a strict Quality Assurance / Quality
Control program which includes mineralized standards and blanks for each batch
of samples. Assay samples are taken from drill core sawed in half with one half
sent to a commercial laboratory and the other half retained for future
reference. Analyses are either performed by Techni-lab S.G.B. Abitibi Inc.
(ACTLABS) in Sainte-Germaine. Quebec, an accredited laboratory.
The Company’s objective is to set up a dynamic process which will allow
it to develop and maintain a balanced portfolio of mining projects ranging from
exploration to resource definition, development and production. Its VISION is
to develop the company’s current and future assets into mineral production with
a schedule consistent with its human and financial resources and respecting
sustainable development practices.
