Gold occurs in many samples (up to 8.17 g/t Au) as does silver (up to 144.6 g/t Ag). One assay of 1.42% Pb was also reported. We are still awaiting results from sampling on the Berrigan South Zone and Berrigan Main Zone. It is hoped that once we receive all the assay results and combine them with our detailed geological and structural mapping, we will be able to better correlate numerous mineralized drill intersection on the Berrigan Property and guide future exploration on the Nepton asset.

Grab samples are selective by nature and are unlikely to be representative of average grades.

Chibougamau Independent Mines’ grab sampling including the quality assurance/quality control program is performed internally by Chibougamau Independent Mines personnel under the immediate supervision of Chibougamau Independent Mines project geologist. Grab samples are tagged and sealed in plastic bags and are delivered directly by Chibougamau Independent Mines personnel to Expert Laboratories Inc, located at 127 Boulevard Industriel, Rouyn-Noranda. The laboratory conducts all aspects of the sample preparation including drying and crushing to a minus 100 mesh screen size and the processing of a 300 gram sub sample for pulverization to a nominal minus 200 mesh size with the remaining crushed reject material being retained for storage. For gold assaying, a 29.16 gram sub-sample of the pulp (1 assay-ton) is taken, fused following the standard procedures used in a fire assay method. The gold content of all samples is determined using atomic Absorption Spectroscopy. Samples containing greater than 1gpt gold are subjected to a re-assay whereby the gold content is determined using a gravimetric fire assay method. For base metal assaying (copper, zinc, lead including silver) a 0.5g sample is initially treated by aqua regia digestion with nitric and hydrochloric acid and subsequently analyzed by a spectrometer of atomic absorption finish. The limit of detection is 0.01% for all metals except for silver which is 3 ppm.

Analytical accuracy and precision are monitored by the routine insertion of blanks, duplicates and reference accredited low/high grade standards at 20 sample intervals in Chibougamau Independent Mines’ sample stream. This is in addition to the routine blanks, duplicates (gold, silver, copper and zinc) and accredited standards insertion by Expert Laboratories during the course of the assaying process.

This press release was written by Jack Stoch, P. Geo., President and CEO of Chibougamau Independent Mines Inc. in his capacity as a Qualified Person (Q.P.) under NI 43-101.

Enforcer Gold resumes drilling at the Montalembert Gold Project

Enforcer Gold Corp (“Enforcer” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: VEIN – FSE: N071) is pleased to report that it has resumed its 2017 diamond drilling program at the Montalembert Gold Project.

The Company announced on August 15, 2017 that drilling had been suspended to allow for the analytical lab to catch up on a large backlog of samples. At that time, the exploration team was waiting for assay results for 18 of the 20 holes drilled to date. As of today, final results have been received for 4 of the 20 holes and partial results have been received for 5 additional holes. Final results for these 5 holes, including the metallic sieve assays for the mineralized zones, are still pending. No results have been received for holes 10 through 20. The Company plans to release the results of the first 10 drill holes once final assays are received and compiled.

The exploration team has weighed the advantages of waiting for additional results versus missing the opportunity to drill under ideal seasonal conditions. The team has elected to resume drilling to ensure that the testing of selected targets gets completed during this phase of the drill program. This next stage of drilling will focus on infilling gaps on the Galena and No. 2 veins, testing their projected north and south extensions and testing of several chargeability anomalies interpreted from the ground IP survey.

Reconnaissance prospecting continues over the Company’s 7300-hectare project area and has already identified several prospects for detailed follow-up mapping and sampling.
