Sirios Resources (TSXV:SOI) announced high-grade gold intercepts at its Cheechoo project, encountered in its drilling campaign that was concluded last March.
As quoted in the press release:

Besides partial results already published, new results of the twenty-six holes undertaken include grades of 37.2 g/t Au over 4.1 metres including 102 g/t Au over 1.4 metres in drill hole #35; 31.8 g/t Au over 6 metres, including124.0 g/t Au over 1.5 metres in drill hole #41; 6.0 g/t Au over 7.4 metres in drill hole #54; and 13.0 g/t Au over 2.7 metres, 29,1 g/t Au over 1,2 metres and 29.3 g/t Au over 1 metre in drill hole #53. Gold grades were also confirmed in drill holes where visible gold was observed (press release March 7, 2016) in the new sector located at more than 1.5 km of the main drilled sector, yielding up to 5.5 g/t Au over 1 metre and 5.3 g/t Au over 1.1 metres in drill hole #47 and up to 10.7 g/t Au over 1 metre in #48.
Gold grades reaching respectively 16.1 g/t Au over 1 metre and 2.3 g/t Au over 6 metres were obtained in meta-sedimentary rocks in drill hole #52 in addition to the section, already announced at the end of march, of 12.1 g/t Au over 20.3 metres located at the contact between these same rocks and the tonalite. Other gold grades were also obtained in meta-sedimentary rocks such as 1.2 g/t Au over 16.3 metres in drill hole #54.

Dominique Doucet, President of Sirios, said:

Results of our drilling campaign are highly encouraging, they allowed us to demonstrate the continuities of gold zone along the north-eastern trending structures in the tonalite as well as to confirm significant gold presence in meta-sedimentary rocks. Future exploration efforts will therefore focus on more promising priority targets, such as: the zone or zones ”52” in the drill hole with the same name, the biotite schist intersected in drill hole #40, the new north-west sector around drill holes #47 and #48 located at more than 1.5 km from the main drilled sector; the whole sector neighboring the tonalite-meta-sediments contact and finally, north-east south-west structures. In addition, identified target by till sampling at more than 3 km north-west of main drilled sector, will be the sixth priority target for upcoming fieldworks.
