Stelmine doubles Courcy’s size


Québec, January 19, 2017- Stelmine Canada Ltd. (« Stelmine ») (STH-TSXV) has increased the size of its Courcy property by 133 claims, bringing the overall number of claims to 309 and the total surface area to 161 km². Stelmine holds 100% of the rights on 207 claims and 90% on the remaining 102 which has a right of first refusal.

The Courcy property is located in the eastern part of the geological formation that gave rise to the world-class Éléonore mine, with proven and probable reserves of 4.3 million ounces of gold. The Courcy property is strategically located in a mining district that is largely unexplored but where drilling has shown gold content of 4.5 g/t over 42 m (including 12 g/t over 13.5 m). Maps are available on the web site.

“Our distinctive acquisition strategy involves taking an important stand on a new mining camp that could result in a major discovery”, says Stelmine President Isabelle Proulx.
