CMQ Announces Drilling Results on South Sleeper Project
CALGARY, Aug. 30, 2012 /CNW/ - CMQ Resources Inc. (TSXV:NV) ("CMQ") is pleased to report drill results for a six-hole core drilling program at the South Sleeper (RO claims) epithermal gold exploration project in Humboldt County, Nevada. The project is being explored under an "Exploration and Option to Enter Joint Venture Agreement" with Geologix (US) Inc.
Montezuma Mines Inc. ("Montezuma"), a wholly owned subsidiary of CMQ, completed a 5,294-foot (1,614-meter) drilling program designed to continue testing three of seven prospect areas defined by anomalous surface geochemical and geophysical characteristics.
All six holes were completed to target depth. The Sleeper rhyolite was drilled in two of the six holes. The underlying Intermediate volcanic rocks were drilled in all holes. The rhyolite exhibits complex flow and flow-dome features. Argillic and silicic alteration, as well as pyrite-marcasite veinlets and disseminations, have been observed in the rhyolite and Intermediate volcanic rocks. The drilling results provide additional evidence that the migration of hydrothermal fluids was controlled by flat-lying breccia zones and high-angle fracture zones, the same geologic features of exploration significance controlling gold mineralization at the Sleeper Mine. The data confirm that two of the three anomalies drilled lie in an area of faulting that controls hydrothermal alteration southward from Sleeper.
Significant drill intercepts, defined as mineralization grading 0.003 oz Au/t (0.1 g Au/t) or 0.044 oz Ag/t (1.5 g Ag/t) or better over 5 feet (1.5 meters) or longer, are presented in the table below.

Drill holes MS12-01 and MS12-02 were drilled in the northwestern part of the project. Both holes were terminated in gravel at depths of 852.5 and 800 feet, respectively.
Thickening of the rhyolite and increased higher temperature alteration has been observed in the drill holes. Reflectance spectroscopic analysis is now being completed on all holes and multi-element geochemical analyses will assist in vectoring towards possible ore-bearing areas in the next phase of drilling.
Ninety-two additional lode claims have been staked on the western and southern boundaries of the property, of which forty-two are subject to the terms of the Agreement with Geologix (US) Inc.
True thicknesses of the intercepts are not known. All samples were collected from diamond drill core sawn in half using a diamond saw. Half the core was submitted and assayed by ALS Minerals of Sparks, Nevada. Gold results were determined using standard fire assay techniques on a 30-gram sample pulp with an atomic absorption finish. Trace elements, including silver, were assayed using an ME-ICP 41 method. Montezuma QA/QC includes the insertion of standards and blanks on a regular basis, check assays on select samples, and the collection of duplicate samples.
The South Sleeper (RO claims) project in Humboldt County, Nevada, includes 60 unpatented lode mining claims (1.7 square miles/4.4 square kilometers) lying 1.5 miles (2.4 kilometers) south of the Sleeper Mine. The targets are bonanza-grade epithermal veins, marcasite-cemented breccias and volumes of stockwork veining.
