Osisko Metals Intersects 8.45 % Zinc+Lead Over 8.25 Metres at Pine Point

MONTREAL, May 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Osisko Metals Incorporated (the “Company” or “Osisko Metals”) (TSX-V:OM) (FRANKFURT:OB51) is pleased to announce assay results from 27 shallow drill holes completed in the L27 deposit area. Drill hole EM-18-PP-017 intersected 7.05% Zn and 1.40% Pb over 8.25 metres. The L27 deposit is located 3.8 kilometres northeast of L36 reported previously (news release May 1, 2018). Both deposits are within the East Mill Zone which is a 7.6-kilometre trend of tabular-style, near-surface, and roughly flat lying mineralization that extends towards the east from the electrical substation area (see Osisko Metals website for additional geological background). Near-surface zinc and lead sulphides were intersected in 18 of the 24 holes above 40 metre depths.

Additional highlights are listed below in Table 1 and details are provided in Tables 2 & 3. (See 2018 Winter Drill Campaign East Mill Zone Map B2).

Jeff Hussey, President and CEO of Osisko Metals, commented: “These latest results strengthen our confidence in historically reported mineralization. If we can demonstrate continuous grades over reasonable widths along the entire East Mill Zone, we will effectively be able to connect a chain of individual historical near surface deposits into a continuous belt of potentially economic material. This entire belt could theoretically be mined by shallow open pit methods. More news is expected as assays from the remainder of the winter program are received followed by the restart of the drill program when weather permits”.

The objective of the 2018 drill program is to convert approximately 50 million tonnes of unclassified near-surface historical resources to NI43-101 Indicated Resources as quickly as possible in areas amenable to open pit extraction. The program consists of approximately 700 drill holes (129 now completed) in the central 20-kilometre long portion of the Pine Point Mining Camp (“PPMC”) that is located on the south shore of Great Slave Lake in the Northwest Territories, near infrastructure and paved highway access.

Note regarding historical resource and Qualified Person

The above-mentioned historical resources do not conform to National Instrument 43-101 standards. The Company is reporting the historical estimates for reference purposes only. Neither Osisko Metals nor its consultants have completed sufficient work to verify the historical estimates and these should not be relied upon for investment purposes. A Qualified Person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimates as NI43-101 compliant mineral resources and there is no guarantee that such work will allow conversion of such historical resources.

Stanley G. Clemmer, P. Geo is the Qualified Person responsible for the technical data reported in this news release. He is a Professional Geologist registered in the Northwest Territories and is Chief Geologist for Pine Point Mining Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Osisko Metals Limited.

Quality Assurance / Quality Control

Osisko Metals adheres to a strict Quality Assurance and Quality Control program with regard to core handling, sampling, transportation of samples and lab analyses. Drill core samples from the Pine Point project area were securely transported to its core facility in Hay River, Northwest Territories where they were logged and sampled. Samples selected for assay were shipped via secure transportation to the ALS Canada Ltd’s preparation facility in Yellowknife. Pulps were analyzed at the ALS Canada Ltd. facility in North Vancouver, British Columbia. Zinc and lead were analyzed by assay-grade four acid digestion with ICP-AES finish for higher-grade samples and four acid digestion and ICP-AES for low grade-samples.
