Westmount Minerals Corp. (CSE:WMC) has completed a soil sampling program at its Douay East property in the Abitibi region of Western Quebec.
In total, 1,016 samples were taken and have now been sent to Activation Laboratories for soil gas hydrocarbon (SGH) analyses.
According to the company, the SGH geochemical exploration program is the first of a two phase exploration program planned for this year and contains three target areas made up of three separate sampling grids.
“Once we have received the sample results and interpretation of the SGH analyses we will be able to evaluate next exploration steps, which we believe should include an initial drilling program,” Westmount Minerals CEO David Tafel said in the press release.
It is assumed that the targets are structures and structural complexities are assumed to be gold-bearing based on historical drilling from the property and regional geological compilation. Westmount Minerals expects to receive results and an interpretation report in early August with a drill program to follow shortly behind.
Westmount Minerals acquired the Douay East Property in 2021 and spans 4,868 hectares in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt of Western Quebec.
Additionally, the property sits within the Casa Berardi Deformation Zone that hosts the currently producing Casa Beradi Gold Mine, past-producing gold mines and a range of exploration gold projects.
Shares of Westmount Minerals remain unchanged at C$0.08.
