Stelmine initiates the first stage of its 2019 drilling campaign

QUEBEC CITY, July 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Stelmine (STH-TSXV) is pleased to announce, as of July 14, the first stage of its drilling campaign program on its Courcy flagship gold property located in the Superior Province near the Quebec-Labrador border.

In order to ensure the positioning of the drill collars on the most promising targets, a team of geologists will carry out additional exploration work. While confirming the selected drilling targets on the main zone, the work should enable the definition of new targets. The operation involves overburden stripping followed by detailed mapping and channel sampling of the extensions of the principal gold-mineralized antiform structure characterized by the folded Couteau fault.
