TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / February 3, 2021 / Vanadium One Iron Corp. ("Vanadium One" or the "Company") (TSXV:VONE), is pleased to provide the initial head assay results from its 2020 drill program which targets the expansion of its current resource at its Mont Sorcier iron and vanadium project, located just outside of Chibougamau, Quebec. The program was designed to extend the current resource at Mont Sorcier by drilling the east end of the North Zone. The goal is to produce an updated Mineral Resource Estimate, which is currently planned for late Q1 2021.
Cliff Sale-Sanders, President and CEO commented "Our results continue to support our expectations in terms of grade and location of the mineralization and provides strong support for a significant expansion of the Mont Sorcier iron ore mineral resources. We believe the expanded resource will further validate the robust potential we see in the ongoing development of Mont Sorcier"
As previously stated in our November 2, 2020 press release, the program consisted of 10 holes (total 3,414 metres) to define the eastern extension of the North Zone. The summary assay results from 374 samples for iron and vanadium are presented in the table below.
The grades are in line with previous drilling results completed from 2013 and 2018 that are used in the current Mineral Resource Estimate. The Davis Tube analysis to determine magnetite content and the vanadium and iron grades of magnetite concentrates are in progress. These results are expected in mid to late February. These results will be used as the basis for an Updated Mineral Resource Estimate, which is expected around the end of the first quarter of 2021. See drill holes location map below.
