Drill Program Paused Until the Winter for Drilling From the Ice

ROUYN-NORANDA, Québec, Aug. 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Chibougamau Independent Mines Inc. (CBG-TSX-V in Canada, CLL1-Frankfurt, Stuttgart and Lang & Schwarz Stock Exchanges in Germany, CMAUF-OTC in the US), herein called Chibougamau, wishes to inform shareholders that it has ended the current drill program at our 100% owned C-3 copper/gold discovery on the Bateman Bay property in the Chibougamau Mining Camp.

Core from the last holes is currently being bound onto pallets and will be moved to our Rouyn-Noranda coreshack where final logging and core splitting will take place and samples sent for analysis. 

Immediately after terminating the C-3 drilling, the drill was moved to our 100% owned Copper Cliff property to test a perceived plunge direction of historical gold mineralization.  This core is also being transported to Rouyn-Noranda for detailed logging, splitting and assaying.

It is our intention to return to the C-3 zone this winter in order to test the southeastern strike of the zone from the ice as drilling from a barge would be very costly.  In addition, several other target areas have been outlined where shallow historical drilling in numerous holes has indicated one or more copper/gold zones that are open to depth on strike of the C-3 zone.  Similarly, if the Copper Cliff drill hole returns good assays, additional drilling will be planned. 

Chibougamau holds a massive land package in the Chibougamau Mining Camp and will continue to advance the various assets.
