Primero Mining Corp. (TSX:P,NYSE:PPP) announced further extensions to the Deep Central zone at its Ontario-based Black Fox mine. The company also reported that the Froome zone has been expanded; it is located about 1 kilometer from the open pit at the Black Fox complex.
Highlights include:

  • Black Fox Continues to Grow at Depth: Wide intercepts demonstrate the continuation of high-grade mineralization at depth and include highlights of 16.0 grams per tonne (“g/t”) gold over 11.9 metres (520-EX482-76) and 15.4 g/t gold over 10.9 metres (520-EX482-64) located over 800 metres below surface.
  • Delineation Drilling Continues to Grow the High-Grade Deep Central Zone: Results from the Deep Central Zone including 10.9 g/t gold over 10.5 metres (580-F392-38A),8.7 g/t gold over 9.1 metres (580-F392-37) and 9.2 g/t gold over 8.4 metres (580-F392-41) have given Primero increased confidence in the wide, high-grade mineralization characteristics of this zone.
  • New Gold Zone Materializing at Black Fox: Recent drilling from the Froome zone, located 1 kilometre west of the Black Fox open-pit, include long mineralized intercepts of5.1 g/t gold over 56.7 metres (15PR-G015),4.8 g/t gold over 52.4 metres (15PR-G007) and 5.1 g/t gold over30.9 metres (15PR-G013), demonstrating considerable continuity over long mineralized intervals.
  • Gibson South Zone Shows Promise: Highlights include 5.2 g/t gold over 34.0 metres(GF15-1043), and 6.4 g/t gold over 7.0 metres (GF15-1045) at the Gibson South deposit, located 300 metres to the southwest of the Grey Fox Contact zone.

Joseph F. Conway, CEO of Primero, commented:

Our 2015 exploration program at Black Fox continues to exceed expectations, reaffirming our original investment thesis that the high-grade gold mineralization is much more extensive than previously identified. Exploration drilling is already expected to have replaced our estimated full-year underground production at Black Fox, encouraging us that with continued success we’ll be able to grow our resources beyond depletion this year. The extension of the Froome zone into a wide, continuous mineralized zone, located near the Black Fox mine confirms our belief that there remains significant exploration upside outside of the identified deposits at the Black Fox Complex.
