Eastmain Resources Inc. announced drill assay results from 14 holes (4,285 m) in the Fall 2018 Exploration Program at the Éléonore South Joint Venture Property located in James Bay, Quebec. Results are pending on 10 additional drill holes (approximately 3,000 m). Early drilling focused in the eastern section of the Contact Trend at Éléonore South, and successfully identified and extended the known gold mineralization. Several intercepts also identified high-grade gold mineralization in relation to lamprophyre dykes within the system. Drilling also intersected mineralization northwards from the Contact Trend into a more central portion of the Cheechoo tonalite, within the large gold bearing system which extends at least 2 km long, and 600-700 m wide.

Drilling Highlights:
ES18-133: 14.7 g/t Au over 6.2 m (vertical depth 129 m), incl. 80.4 g/t Au over 1.0 m (visible gold)
ES18-126: 2.08 g/t Au over 8.0 m (vertical depth 111 m), incl. 3.52 g/t Au over 4.5 m, also incl. 8.22 g/t Au over 1.5 m
ES18-121A: 1.85 g/t Au over 8.7 m (vertical depth 47 m), incl. 3.83 g/t Au over 3.9 m (visible gold)

Claude Lemasson, Eastmain President & CEO, stated “We are pleased with the progress made to date at the Moni/Contact Trend discovery. Since 2016, a total of 90 drill holes have identified significant shallow tonalite-hosted gold mineralization within this large gold-bearing system. These latest results indicate the extension of the system as predicted, with the potential to extend an additional 3 km to the JT Prospect along the semi-circular trend to the west.”
