Foran Mining (TSXV:FOM) announced that the final three of six infill holes drilled at the Bigstone deposit located west of the McIlvenna property in Saskatchewan.

Results from the final three drill holes include:

  • 2.5% Cu over 53.6m (including 4.0% Cu over 12.3m) in BS-15-242,
  • 2.5% Cu over 58.0m (including 3.8% Cu over 15.3m) and 11.2% Zn over 3.0m in BS-15-243, and
  • 15.1% Zn and 778 g/t Ag over 4.8m (including 32.4% Zn and 2,322 g/t Ag over 1.58m), followed further downhole by 1.2% Cu and 7.8% Zn over 29.0m in BS-15-244

Based on the results, Foran plans to prioritize this deposit – a detailed review and compilation of historic data at Bigstone is currently underway, which will be integrated with results from the program.

Foran CEO, Patrick Soares, said:

Our work at Bigstone has demonstrated that the deposit may be open to expansion and that it could be a source of early highgrade feed to a future McIlvenna Bay concentrator. We plan to continue to look at the synergies between McIlvenna Bay and the surrounding satellite deposits, as Foran Management believes that once the first deposit gets to production, the Hanson Lake Camp has the potential to be a long-lived source of copper and zinc concentrate.
