Cartier Resources Inc.: Drilling Below the Benoist Deposit Follows Up
on 2012 Results
VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 01/17/13 -- Cartier Resources
Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ECR) ("Cartier") announces that a drill program is
currently underway on the Benoist property.
The drilling objective is to intersect, at a vertical depth between
400 m and 600 m, the extension of the Pusticamica gold deposit and
the extensions of the new gold zone discovered in 2012 (see figure).
The work, consisting of 6 drill holes totalling 4,200 m, will be
completed in late March 2013.
In 1993, Minnova calculated historical resources for the Pusticamica
gold deposit (Murgor Resources press release of January 17, 2012).
The set of sections for this deposit illustrate the potential for
increasing the volume of mineralization at depth. The new 2012 gold
zone is positioned 450 m below the Pusticamica deposit. It consists
of high gold grades up to 24.5 g/t Au over 3.0 m, enclosed within a
gold-bearing envelope with drilled grades on the order of one gram of
gold over intervals of more than 100 m.
"The discovery of the new 2012 gold zone below the Pusticamica gold
deposit suggests that the deposit's mineralization continues at
depth", commented Philippe Cloutier, President and CEO.
The Benoist property is 65 km northeast of the town of
Lebel-sur-Quevillon, 25 km from the Bachelor gold mine in
Desmaraisville, and 25 km from the Gonzague-Langlois zinc-copper mine
belonging to Nyrstar.
The company's objective is to develop and maintain a balanced
portfolio of mining projects ranging from exploration to resource
definition, development and production. Its VISION is to develop the
company's current and future assets into mineral production within a
timeframe that is consistent with its human and financial resources
while respecting sustainable development practices.
