ROUYN-NORANDA, QC, Feb. 14 /CNW Telbec/ - Visible Gold Mines Inc.
(VGD: TSX Venture Exchange) announces that it has intersected visible gold at
surface at its Hazeur gold property. Eleven drill holes totaling 2550 metres
have been completed. The drill holes are located on sections established at
approximatively 150 m intervals along a 750m portion of the known gold bearing
zone on the east side of the property. Drill holes have been drilled between
150m and 350m deep, perpendicular to the main East West mineralized zone.
Pictures of the core, the visible gold and location of the drill holes
will be available shortly at our website at www.visiblegoldmines.com
The Hazeur property is located approximately 25 kilometres south-west of
the city of Chibougamau. The property is easily accessible by the
Barrette-Chapais-South road and various other logging roads which are located
in this region.
The property is comprised of 147 mineral claims, covering a surface area
of 2,382 hectares. The property was acquired from Fieldex Exploration in July
2007 and all of the claims are in full force and effect.
Ten gold showings have been identified on the property. The gold
potential of the Coapatina metavolcanic-metasedimentary segment is evident by
the presence of the Joe Mann mine, operated by Campbell Resources, the
Philibert deposit and numerous gold showings that are dispersed along the
segment. The Joe Mann mine, located approximately 15 kilometres east of the
Hazeur property, has produced more than 1,000,000 ounces of gold and
22 million pounds of Copper since the 1950s. The Philibert deposit, located
less than one kilometre to the east of the Hazeur property, contains resources
from 1.4 Mt to 5.32 g/t. Au (MB-99-33: Government of Québec database).
Ongoing compilation, geophysical interpretation combined with 2006 and
recent field work have guided the drill hole target generation. The trenching
and stripping program, focused on the gold showings area, exposed widespread
quartz veining in a shear zone. Extensive detailed channel sampling has been
completed and returned value in gold up to 9.8 g/t (see gold value map on our
