MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Aug. 18, 2016) - DIOS EXPLORATION (TSX VENTURE:DOS) starts with anticipation field campaign on its Clarkie high gold potential project south-east of Sirios' Cheechoo gold discovery and Goldcorp Eleonore world-class gold mine. DIOS' claims cover the folded part of the Clarkie sediments with a lot of structures crossing the fold nose, which by the way happens to be located just up-ice of a significant gold-bearing glacial train discovered by DIOS. Recent public data on Cheechoo also indicates sheared folded structural control for gold.

The Clarkie sediments are interpreted as equivalent (same age sediments) to those hosting Eleonore gold mine. (source RP 2007-05): The Low Formation that hosts world-class Goldcorp Eleonore gold is the stratigraphic equivalent of the Clarkie Formation.

The Clarkie Gold sediments fold nose on DIOS' claims hosts small dioritic plugs and is located in a similar environment as Eleonore gold deposit, near the contact zone between LaGrande and Opinaca Sub-provinces with host rocks consisting in aluminous meta-sediments and conglomerates of the Low Formation, along a large dioritic intrusion edge and near a steep metamorphic gradient.

Diorite intrusions, porous sediments, fold closures and northwest sheared structures are among good physical traps for gold noted on DIOS' Clarkie. This press release was prepared by M.J. Girard, M.Sc. Geo 43-101 QP.
