IAMGOLD (TSX:IMG) has released the initial results from its maiden drill program at the Nelligan joint venture project in Quebec.

The initial thee hole were sunk at the site’s Renard Zone, with the other three sunk into the Renard West Zone.

At the Renard Zone the company intersected 25 metres at 1.87 grams per tonne gold, which included 2.6 metres grading at 4.72 grams per tonne gold. Another drill hit 1.5 metres grading at 33.8 grams per tonne gold, which included 4.5 metres at 5.75 grams per tonne gold.

The final Renard result hit 27 at 2.86 grams per tonne including three metres at 13.3 grams per tonne.

Senior Vice President exploration for IAMGOLD, Craig MacDougall said he was pleased with the initial drilling results.

“The drilling program continued to intersect the expected alteration and associated mineralization within the resource area, and importantly has demonstrated that the alteration system remains open along strike to the west outside of the current modelled resource for potentially another 500 metres,” he said. 

IAMGOLD (IMG) is down 0.6 per cent and is trading at C$4.49 per share at 10:40 pm EDT.
