TORONTO, Oct. 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Osisko Mining Inc. (OSK:TSX “Osisko” or the “Company”) is happy to supply new outcomes from the persevering with exploration program at its 100% owned Windfall gold challenge positioned within the Abitibi greenstone belt, City Township, Eeyou Istchee James Bay, Québec.
- Common grade of 65.5 g/t Au (2.11 ounces per Ton Au) for the majority pattern, 169% constructive reconciliation
- 4,809 tonnes bulk
- 93.1% Au restoration (together with 52.2%
concentrates) from floatation processing circuit
- Windfall bulk samples processed thus far (Zone 27, Lynx 311, and Lynx 600) utilizing floatation processing comprised an combination of 16,025 tonnes containing 14,914 ounces of gold and eight,004 ounces of silver, with the common gold restoration for the three samples of 94.1%
Outcomes from processing 4,809 tonnes mined from Triple Lynx (the “bulk pattern”) introduced in Desk 1 and Desk 2, have exceeded technical expectations. The pattern produced a constructive reconciliation of 169%, returning a mean grade of 65.5 g/t Au, properly above the expected capped grade based mostly on the 12.5-metres infill mannequin utilizing the identical block mannequin parameters as the present mineral useful resource estimate “MRE” (technical report filed on SEDAR beneath Osisko’s issuer profile on September 14, 2022). Vital visible gold mineralization was encountered alongside the size of the mined stope.

Bulk pattern outcomes have been reconciled by Soutex Inc., an exterior impartial marketing consultant utilizing Bilmat.
Osisko Chairman and Chief Govt Officer John Burzynski commented: “On the again of our strongly constructive MRE introduced in late August and the numerous new high-grade down plunge intercepts in September (Osisko information launch dated September 27, 2022), at the moment’s bulk pattern outcomes underscore the potential for Windfall to develop into one of many largest and highest-grade underground gold deposits in Canada. The grade has – for the third time in as many bulk samples – considerably exceeded expectations based mostly on capped drilling block fashions. The empirical outcomes from our bulk samples have constantly returned robust constructive reconciliations, and provides robust assist to the prevailing geological mannequin. They’ve proved invaluable in growing our confidence within the grade, continuity and predictability of the mineralized zones at Windfall.”
The Triple Lynx wireframe 3161 bulk pattern is characterised by a West-South-West oriented mineralization hall reasonably dipping to the north, with a mean width of three.3 metres. Banded gray quartz veins comprise 5 – 15% pyrite, hint chalcopyrite and native seen gold. The mineralization is hosted inside a granodiorite dyke and gabbro, each displaying robust sericite and silica alteration.
A complete of 4,809 tonnes of mineralized materials have been processed in September 2022 on the Northern Solar Redstone concentrator, producing gravity and flotation concentrates. The reconciled head grade obtained from the processed pattern is 65.5 g/t Au and 28.3 g/t Ag. The pattern contained 10,135 oz Au and 4,378 oz Ag, with a complete of 9,439 oz Au and three,864 oz Ag recovered. Reconciled recoveries are 93.1% for gold and 88.2% for silver. The Windfall MRE metallurgical take a look at work thought-about a communition, gravity and leaching circuit course of flowsheet, giving a mean restoration of 96.4% for the Lynx zone. Check mill availability dictated using a mill with a communition, gravity and flotation flowsheet. The reconciled outcomes from the processing of the majority pattern materials are introduced in Desk 1.
The majority pattern was taken from Triple Lynx mineralization wireframe 3161 of the Windfall MRE. The pattern space was infill drilled at 12.5-metres spacings and predicted to comprise 4,800 tonnes averaging 38.9 g/t Au, and 6,009 ounces of gold (Desk 2).

Each the gravity concentrates and flotation focus produced from the pattern are thought-about high- grade. The gravity focus averaged 14,339 g/t Au (461.0 oz/t Au), whereas the flotation focus averaged 408.2 g/t Au (13.1 oz/t Au).
The Triple Lynx bulk pattern was mined utilizing lengthy gap mining strategies. Two improvement drifts have been mined conventionally at 20 metres floor-to-floor vertical intervals between 580 and 600 metres under floor. Whereas mining the event drifts, sampling of the face was accomplished to check the width and grade of the mineralization. A V30 borehole was used within the slot increase and three-inch manufacturing holes have been drilled down and blasted. The blasted ore was retrieved utilizing a distant scoop tram, sampled, trucked to a floor stockpile, then trucked to the Northern Solar mill web site.
Earlier Bulk Samples
All three bulk samples accomplished by Osisko have reconciled positively. Desk 3 summarizes Windfall’s three bulk pattern outcomes, which have returned in combination 14,914 ounces gold and eight,004 ounces silver from a mixed 16,025 tonnes, or a mean of 0.93 ounces Au per tonne and 0.50 ounces Ag per tonne, with a mean gold restoration of 94.1 p.c, and common silver restoration of 90.8 p.c.
