Three (3) boreholes intersected levels of semi-massive to massive sphalerite with thicknesses ranging from one centimeter to several centimeters spread over several meters. The results of the analyzes are expected towards the end of spring.
Green Palladium (palladium-copper project), which is 100% owned. – A drill program of ten (10) holes totaling 969 m has been completed. The geological continuity of the mineralized reef over a length of 800 m has been confirmed. The full results of the analyzes are expected early in the summer.
Chemin TroA�lus (gold), wholly owned. – By 2016 Sphinx has defined a 1.2 km prospective sector by 1.0 km upstream of the head of the mineralized block trail and till samples containing intact gold grains. A polarization survey on the prospective sector was conducted in April 2017. Interpretation of the survey results is underway to identify drill targets to be tested during the month of June.
Cheechoo-Eleonore Corridor (gold), partnership with Sirios Resources Inc. 50-50% – Results of analyzes of the till sampling program completed last October will be available shortly. Planning for field work is underway with our highly skilled and experienced team.
