ROUYN-NORANDA, Quebec, Feb. 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chibougamau Independent Mines Inc. (CBG-TSX-V in Canada, CLL1-Frankfurt, Stuttgart and Lang & Schwarz Stock Exchanges in Germany, CMAUF-OTC in the US) wishes to provide shareholders with an update regarding exploration on our C-3 copper/gold zone, located in Roy Township, east of the town of Chibougamau, Quebec.

Previously, in a series of press releases dated April 4, 2019, April 22, 2019, August 7, 2019 and August 8, 2019, significant intersections of copper, gold, silver and cobalt were reported. The deepest intersection was in Hole BJ-19-18 at a depth of 450 metres vertical which returned 7.7% Cu and 3.58 g/t Au over a core length of 9.20 m. The C-3 zone was exposed by stripping near the north shore of Lac aux Dorés and was followed by drilling down plunge to the southeast.

In December 2019, lines were cut on the land portion of the property and covered by an IP survey which demonstrated a potential extension of the C-3 zone along strike to the northwest.  Ice conditions on Lac aux Dorés were too dangerous to allow for extension of the grid and IP survey over the projected extension of the C-3 Zone beneath the lake to the southeast. Recently, the ice conditions have somewhat improved allowing the grid to be extended over Lac aux Dorés and the IP survey has just been completed in order to test for additional mineralized zones within 250 meters vertical of the ice.

Drilling is starting this week to test the down plunge of the C-3 copper/gold zone. The drilling will be land based due to the poor ice conditions. This will necessitate longer drill holes, and result in oblique intersections and potentially more difficulty in intersecting the target areas but we expect to succeed in controlling the holes projected paths.
