MONTREAL, May 22, 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") through their Joint Venture with Midland Exploration Inc. ("Midland") has completed diamond drilling on its Laflamme property, which tested high-priority targets located along a gold trend identified during the 2013 work program.
During the winter of 2014, five (5) diamond drill holes were completed for a total of 881.0 metres. Drill hole LAF-14-30 targeted the Notting Hill showing, about 75 metres below drill hole LAF-13-21, which intersected a wide gold-bearing zone in 2013 grading 0.34 g/t Au over 25.56 metres, including 3.12 g/t Au over 1.50 metres. Drill hole LAF-14-30 intersected chloritized breccia at about 230 metres, followed by a 0.7-metre-wide mineralized shear zone with 5% pyrite at about 253 metres depth. These two zones are bordered by biotite alteration, which represents the extension of the gold-bearing zone intersected in drill hole LAF-13-21. Drill hole LAF-14-30 was drilled to a final depth of 296.0 metres and intersected a gold-bearing interval between 258.18 and 258.92 metres, grading 4.43 g/t Au over 0.74 metre, included within a wider zone grading 1.71 g/t Au over 2.66 metres from 258.18 to 260.84 metres.
This drill campaign confirms the gold-bearing structure at the Notting Hill showing extends to the Northeast. Midland is currently reviewing areas along this structure where structural complexities may occur and plans to test the latter with induced polarization surveys.
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 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 Laflamme project comprises 682 claims covering a surface area of about 359 square kilometres and is a joint venture between Midland and Aurbec. Midland is current operator of the LaFlamme joint venture.
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 edited the press release to fit Maudore's format, and approves its technical content.
