MONTREAL, June 18, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Management of SIRIOS (TSX-V: SOI) is pleased to announce that diamond drilling will resume in the coming days on its Aquilon gold property in Eeyou Istchee James Bay, Quebec.

The Aquilon project enters in a new exploration phase. Compilation of historic data and the new geological modelling have permitted us to identify new high-potential targets. Sirios will consequently test the depth extensions of the high-grade, near surface gold showings, that include:

  • 3,230.89 g/t Au over 0.8 m (Lingo 3 West, ref.: press release 06/26/2008);
  • 133.67 g/t Au over 0.82 m (Fleur de Lys, ref.: press release 01/19/2011).

The planned drill holes will also test for the potential stacking of additional gold zones around the currently known mineralization.

The Aquilon property, 100% owned by Sirios, is composed of 140 claims covering nearly 70 km2. It is located approximately 1,750 km north of Montreal and 490 km east of Radisson, the property is easily accessible year-round by a network of roads via the Trans-Taïga road crossing the Eeyou Istchee James Bay Area.
