The C-3 copper and gold property is part of Chibougamau's wholly owned Bateman Bay property, and the results along with drilling to date show the zone is open in various directions.

So far, seven new holes have been completed totaling 3,441 metres.
A number of holes had to be abandoned and restarted due to excessive deviation, the firm also noted.
