Osisko Mining has announced results from the drilling programme at its Windfall Lake gold project in Urban Township of Québec, Canada.

The current 100,000m programme combines definition drilling above the Red Dog intrusion, and expansion drilling above and below this area. It also covers exploration drilling on the greater property area.

A total of 12 new drill holes were created.

Definition drilling near the Caribou Zone led to a new discovery 150m below the zone. The new mineralised area, called Wolf Zone is defined by drill hole OSK-W-16-710, which intersected 11.8g/t Au over 6.7m from 562m-568.9m.

"In the next month, further drilling will be directed to explore the dimensions of the Wolf Zone."

Further mineralisation was discovered in the hanging wall and footwall of the Wolf Zone, with assays returning 8.32g/t over 3m and 16.2g/t Au over 2.3m respectively.

In the next month, further drilling will be directed to explore the dimensions of the Wolf Zone.

The new intercepts indicate potential for new mineralisation near the Windfall mineral inventory through continued definition and exploratory drilling.

The company also revealed outcomes from new drill holes, which includes 8.89g/t Au over 6.9m in DDH OBM 16- 701, 18.4g/t Au over 2.3m in DDH OBM-16-703, and 16.2g/t Au over 2.3m in DDH OSK-W- 16-710.

These results demonstrate lateral and vertical continuity of high-grade gold mineralisation in Zone 27 and the Caribou Zone, as well as new zones developing between those two major mineralised corridors.
