Richmond Minerals Inc. Intersects Broad Zones of Gold Mineralization Including 87 m of 0.39 Grams per Tonne Gold in Phase I Drilling at the Ridley Lake Property

TORONTO, Nov. 19, 2015 /CNW/ - Richmond Minerals Inc.  (TSX-V: RMD) ("Richmond" or the "Company") is pleased to announce Phase I diamond drilling results from the Company's Ridley Lake Project located within the Swayze Greenstone Belt, approximately 23 miles due east of  Goldcorp's Borden Lake gold deposit.

As previously announced in June of this year, a geophysical survey grid was cut on four of the Company's 100%-owned claims located immediately to the east of the Aguara gold showing, followed by the completion of Spectral Induced Polarization (IP)/Resistivity & Magnetic surveys. The surveys were successful in identifying a well-defined IP anomaly characterized by high chargeability and resistivity down to approximately 50 m and a prominent coincidental magnetic anomaly (the "Aguara East anomaly"), having a northeast orientation and a strike length in excess of 825 meters. To test these targets Richmond completed 900 m of diamond drilling in 6 holes. All holes for this phase of work were drilled at an azimuth of 180 degrees, and at an inclination of -45 degrees.

The local grid coordinates of the hole collars are provided in the table below:

Hole RS15-14 was collared near historic hole S89-08, in order to compare the geology and assay values with those reported in 1989. Assay results obtained are reported in the table below.

The drill intervals reported above represent core intersection length and true widths are not known at this time. 

The gold-bearing intervals are associated with mafic to intermediate metavolcanic units and with a porphyry unit that was encountered in all four holes for which results were reported. Preliminary review of the geological and assay data suggests that the gold-bearing zone plunges to the east. Hole RS15-19 was drilled below hole RS15-16 and clearly indicates an increase of the width of the gold-bearing zone and an increase of grade with depth (0.67 g/t in hole 19 versus 0.42 g/t in hole 16 for the same vertical section).

Holes RS15-17 and -18 were drilled to test an IP anomaly identified at the northeast corner of the property and returned no significant values. Richmond's technical team is currently of the opinion that holes RS15-17 and -18 were drilled above the gold-bearing zone due to the apparent eastern plunge.

Richmond is planning a second phase of diamond drilling to follow-up on these results, particularly with a view to test for higher-grade gold intervals at depth.
