MONTREAL, Feb. 26, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Greg Struble, President and CEO of Maudore Minerals Ltd. ("Maudore" or the "Corporation") (MAO: TSX-Venture; MAOMF: US OTC; M6L: Frankfurt Exchange) reports that Maudore's subsidiary, Aurbec Mines Inc. ("Aurbec") has commenced a diamond drilling campaign on its Laflamme property, to test high-priority targets located along a gold trend identified during the 2013 work program. The Laflamme property is located about 25 kilometres northwest of the town of Lebel-sur-Quévillon and about 30 kilometres east of the Sleeping Giant mine and mill in Quebec. The exploration program is being conducted by Midland Exploration Inc. ("Midland"), who is current operator of the Laflamme joint venture.
This drilling program, totaling about 1,000 metres in five (5) drill holes, will test three helicopter-borne VTEM-type electromagnetic anomalies as well as the depth and northeast strike extensions of the Notting Hill showing, where a wide gold-bearing zone was intersected in 2013 grading 0.34 g/t Au over 25.56 metres, including an interval at 3.12 g/t Au over 1.5 metres.
The three VTEM targets to be tested during this campaign (EM-09, EM-17 and EM-18) are all located along the favourable gold trend. Anomaly EM-09 is located about 1.5 kilometres southwest of the Comtois NW showing discovered by Maudore, who reported grades of 71.7 g/t Au over 1.2 metres and 0.80 g/t Au over 40.80 metres about 12 kilometres northwest of the Comtois gold deposit (see Maudore press release dated June 6, 2012). Anomalies EM-17 and EM-18 are respectively located about 2 kilometres and 4 kilometres northeast of the Notting Hill showing, in a flexure zone bordering an intrusion.
The Laflamme property covers more than 50 kilometres of favourable stratigraphy and structures with potential for orogenic gold, volcanogenic massive sulphides (Cu-Zn), and magmatic Ni-Cu-PGE deposits associated with ultramafic rocks. This property was acquired in 2008 based on the presence of significant gold, copper, and zinc anomalies in till, identified under the Octave project jointly led by the Ministère des Ressources Naturelles et de la Faune (MRNF) and the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC).
The Laflamme project comprises 682 claims covering a surface area of about 359 square kilometres and is a joint venture between Midland and Aurbec.
This press release was prepared by Mario Masson, Vice-President of Midland. Kevin R. Kivi, P.Geo. of KIVI Geoscience Inc., who is Maudore's Chief Consulting Geologist and a Qualified Person under Regulation 43-101, has changed the press release to fit Maudore's format, and approves its technical content.
Maudore is a Quebec-based junior gold company in production, with mining and milling operations as well as more than 22 exploration projects. Five of these projects are at an advanced stage of development with reported current and historical resources and mining. Currently, gold production is ramping up at the Sleeping Giant mine. The Company's projects span some 120 km, east-west, of the underexplored Northern Volcanic Zone of the Abitibi Greenstone Belt and cover a total area of 1,570 km², with the Sleeping Giant Processing Facility within trucking distance of key development projects.
