Baie-Comeau, Quebec / January 26, 2015 / St-Georges Platinum and Base Metals Ltd. (CSE: SX) (FSE: 85G1) (US OTC: SXOOF) is pleased to announce today that a new series of results increased the size and grades of the previously reported mineralized T1 Zone, as well as additional positive results from the T2 Zone from its wholly owned Julie Nickel-Copper project on the Quebec North Shore.
Results from T1 Zone
The initial discovery on the T1 Zone which yielded 1.71% Nickel over 8.49 meters was reported on December 29, 2014. New results from the Channel #1 on the T1 Zone extend the length of the intersection an additional 3.15 meters grading 2.14% Nickel, 0.33% Copper and 0.04% Cobalt. These compiled results are highlighted in the table below:
|T1 Channel 1Including new result
Including already reported*
* Reported channel sections are not true widths there is insufficient data with respect to the shape of the mineralization to calculate true orientations in space.
The starting point of the channel cut was located at N49? 57.463′ W69? 27.045′
Zone T1 is an area measuring 70 metres by 56 metres. The ultramafic intrusive suite that hosts the new discovery can be traced along a magnetic conductor identified in 2011, which runs for approximately 13 kilometres in a WSW to ENE trend.
Results from T2 Zone
The T2 Zone is a surface mineralized zone measuring 52 metres by 18 metres. This zone is located 116 metres away from the initial discovery of “T1″ on an East-North-East trend. It is categorized by a series of small gossans within a larger zone of mafic and ultramafic rocks at or near surface.
When added to the T1 Zone already identified it covers a total strike length of 238 meters of mineralisation and coincides with the ultramafic intrusive suite which hosts the new discovery.
The table below outlines the results from an 18.68 metre channel sample taken sub-parallel the mineralized body at surface and starts approximately 171 meters away from the end of the channel #1 on T1 zone:
|T2 Channel 3Including
* Reported channel sample sections are not true widths. An apparent surface width of 8 meters can be calculated but at this time there is insufficient data with respect to the shape of the mineralization to calculate true orientations in space.
The starting point of the channel sample was located at N49? 57.515′ W69? 26.910′
Mr. Joel Scodnick (P.Geo.), Vice-President Exploration of the Company, is the independent qualified person for the technical disclosure contained in this news release. Mr. Scodnick has supervised the work programs on the Julie Project, examined the samples summarized in this release, discussed, reviewed the results with the Company’s geological staff and reviewed the available analytical and quality control results.
Channel cuts samples and drill core samples were transported in sealed bags from Baie-Comeau to a warehouse facility in Montreal. There they have been opened, washed, photographed again, logged, resealed and transported to Agat Laboratories in Dorval, Quebec. Agat Laboratories transported the samples to their analytical facilities in Mississauga, Ontario. Base metal analyses were initially obtained via ICP-AES Aqua Regia and 4 Acid digestions. The two digestion methods show good correlation. Nickel values in excess of 10,000 ppm were reanalyzed using a sodium peroxide fusion followed by ICP-AES finish.
