Gitennes' JMW Gold Property Diamond Drilling Results, Chapais-Chibougamau area, Quebec

Gitennes Exploration Inc.

Vancouver, B.C. - TheNewswire - May 15, 2023 - Gitennes Exploration Inc. ("Gitennes" or the "Company") – (TSXV:GIT) announces results from the diamond drilling program completed on its 100% owned JMW gold property in the Chapais-Chibougamau area of Quebec (see Figure 2).  


The diamond drilling program totalled 984 metres in five holes (Figure 1). Four holes were drilled into sedimentary rocks and targeted Induced Polarization (“IP”) geophysical anomalies. One hole was drilled across the northern contact between the intrusives and volcanics.  


The sedimentary rocks and intrusive contacts are known to host gold deposits and occurrences in the Chapais-Chibougamau area.

Of the four drill holes that were targeting strong IP anomalies, all four intersected at least one of the following: ductile shearing, graphitic cataclastic faulting, stringer to semi-massive sulphide (pyrrhotite+/-pyrite), and/or magnetite-bearing sheared iron formation. Furthermore, graphitic lithologies and sheared/faulted equivalents often displayed increased disseminated sulphide. This suggests that the IP survey was successful at identifying these features which are known to be associated with gold mineralizing systems in sedimentary rocks in the Chapais-Chibougamau area.


Gold assays mainly showed less than 0.50 g/t over two to 20 metres, particularly in holes 22JMW-02 and 22JMW-05. These low-grade intervals were associated with deformed volcanogenic intervals with known sulfides (pyrite and pyrrhotite) occurrences.


Hole 22JMW-03 had an interval of 7.23 g/t gold over 0.7 metres (114m - 114.7m) characterized by notable quartz-carbonate veining and intense structural deformation and sericite alteration along the hanging wall of the mineralized interval.
