Chibougamau Independent Encounters High Grade Gold, Zinc and Lead on Surface at its Berrigan Property
TSX VENTURE: CBG
ROUYN-NORANDA, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Nov. 22, 2016) - Chibougamau Independent Mines Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CBG)(STUT:CLL)(OTC PINK:CMAUF) is pleased to report the results of recent surface grab and channel sampling on several areas of our 100% owned Berrigan property located immediately northwest of the town of Chibougamau in McKenzie Township, Quebec. Globex Mining Enterprises Inc. (GMX - Toronto Stock Exchange, G1M - Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Berlin, Munich, Tradegate, Lang & Schwarz Stock Exchanges and GLBXF - OTCQX International) retains a 3% Gross Metal Royalty (GMR) on the property and surrounding claims. The sampling was initiated following the work of Globex's in-house structural geologist who identified several new geological structures and environments on the property. Following upon his interpretation, in combination with our previous geophysical work and historical drilling, we test sampled several surface rock exposures which displayed mineralization and alteration often found with the newly identified geological model. The 26 samples returned assays as listed below. Chibougamau is currently drilling on the Berrigan property and will release assay results once they are available.

All samples were delivered to Accurassay Laboratories located at 165 Jacques Bibeau Street, Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec. The samples are dried and crushed to 70 % passing 2mm. A 1025 g sub-sample is pulverized to 85% passing <200 mesh. The sub-samples are then transferred to Accurassay Laboratories located at 1046 Gorham St., Thunder Bay, Ontario for analytical procedures.
Gold was measured by metallic pulp method. A 1000g pulverized sub-sample is screen to separate the -150 mesh pulp portion to the +150 metallic portion. Two 30 g samples are taken from the -150 mesh portion and the whole +150 mesh is used in the calculation of the final gold calculation done by ICP-OES (AA) finish.
Zinc and lead were measured using multi-digestion (4 acid) on a 2.5 g of the 25 g pulverized sub-sample. The final Zn and Pb determination was done by ICP-OES (AA) finish.
Accurassay Laboratories employs an internal quality control system that tracks Certified Reference Materials. Standard Quality Control practices include Certified Reference Material, Silica Blank and duplicate pulp analyses.
