Radisson appoints Catherine Jalbert as exploration manager
Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec: Radisson Mining Resources Inc. (“Radisson” or the“Company”) is pleased to announce the appointment of Catherine Jalbert as exploration manager (“EM”) of the Company. Ms. Jalbert is a professional geologist (“P. Geo”) and Board member of the “Ordre des géologues du Québec” (“OGQ”) since 2017. She brings close to 10 years of experience to the Company, ranging from Greenfield exploration, 3D modelling to NI43-101 reporting.
Ms. Jalbert, P. Geo, studied Geology at Laval University and completed a bachelor degree in 2009 before beginning her career at InnovExplo, a Val-d’Or based Mining engineering and Geology consulting firm. She holds a strong expertise in 3D modelling and her experience ranges from exploration (Drilling, Prospection, geophysical surveying, geochemical soil survey etc.) to resource estimate mandates and environmental studies. Over the years, Ms. Jalbert worked with more than twenty junior and major mining companies in the Gold, Zinc, Uranium, Apatite and REE sectors.
Ms. Jalbert will be planning, coordinating and controlling all exploration activities of the Company. She will work in tight collaboration with Tony Brisson, P. Geo, independent consultant who will continue to supervise the advancement of the O’Brien project from a high-level perspective. Tony Brisson joined Radisson in 2016, since then more than 25,000 m of drilling have been completed with main objective of increasing resources of the O’Brien deposit. The exploration potential of the O’Brien project was highlighted through these campaigns, especially with the discovery of the Vintage Zone a few meters north of the O’Brien deposit. The Vintage Zone is located in the Cadillac sediments (North of the Cadillac Break), in a context comparable to the Lapa mine, located 8km east and owned by Agnico-Eagle.
“Having worked on multiple projects in the gold sector, Catherine possesses a vast experience in exploration. Her skillset and strong expertise in 3D modelling will enable Radisson to further investigate the exploration potential remaining at depth and along strike of the O’Brien deposit. Tony Brisson will continue to play a key role by supervising the big picture, mentoring the exploration team, sharing his expertise and knowledge of the project. Catherine’s appointment will create an enviable workplace that will benefit both the growth of the O’Brien project and the Company, commented Radisson President & CEO Mario Bouchard.
The company also announces it has granted 100,000 stock options to its Exploration Manager in accordance with its stock option plan. The options are priced at $ 0.19 and expire on February 26, 2023.
Vintage Zone Drilling program
In December 2017, the company started a second phase 6,000 meters drilling program focused on the Vintage Zone of the O’Brien gold project (See Press release). Up to date, 3 wedge holes and 10 drill holes were completed for approximately 3,663 meters. The drilling program was designed to drill test the lateral continuity of the Vintage Zone between section of DDH OB-17-56 (See 27.5 g/t Au over 1.4 m) and OB-17-49 (See 6.9 g/t Au over 4 m). In 2017, the Vintage Zone has been traced over an 825 meters strike length from surface to 550 meters depth (See plan view). Assays are currently pending and should be made available in the coming weeks.
