Rogue Resources Channel Sampling Returns Up to 99.9% SiO2 on Same Quartzite Unit ‘G’, 1.4 Km from Last Reported High Grade Results
- FIVE NEW CHANNEL ASSAY RESULTS FROM TOTAL OF 14 QUARTZITE CHANNELS RECEIVED
- NEW ASSAYS INCLUDE SAMPLES SITES 1.4 KM EAST OF FIRST SAMPLE SITES ON QUARTZITE UNIT ‘G’
- ASSAYS ON NEWLY DISCOVERED QUARTZITE UNIT “H” RECEIVED
- TEN OF TWENTY FIVE PHASE ONE DRILL HOLES COMPLETED
VANCOUVER, B.C. — Rogue Resources Inc. (TSX-V: RRS) (“Rogue” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that assay results from an additional five of fourteen channel sample units comprising 256 samples have been received on the Lac de la Grosse Femelle silica project (“Femelle”) located approximately 42 kilometers (“km”) north of Baie-Saint Paul, Québec, and 4 km northeast of Sitec’s operating silica mine.
Two new assay results, R9 and R10, are from channel sample sites located up to 1.4 km east of Channels R6 and R7, located on the same “G” quartzite unit (News Release, August 20, 2015). Newly reported as well is Channel R8 located 50 meters (“m”) east-northeast of R7 on the same unit. The replication of assays over a strike length of 1.4 km on surface is considered indicative of the continuity of high purity silica trends that are contained within the ‘G’ quartzite unit.
Channel R13, 20.7 m long and located on the newly discovered zone “H,” returned assays from 8 of 12 samples submitted over an accumulated width of 13.7 m with silica purity ranging from 99.0% to 99.9% SiO2. Further sampling and drilling is warranted and will take place in the vicinity of Channel R13. Channel R12, located on the southern edge of the contact with quartzite zone “H,” returned assays that indicate it is outside of the quartzite unit.
The Company is also pleased to announce that 10 of the 25 drill holes planned for Phase One have been completed. In addition to providing core that will be assayed to prove up consistency of silica purity, the drill program is designed to provide the depth of the quartzite units as the width and length are already known visually from surface.

“It is extremely encouraging to have high purity silica assays on the eastern portion of the same “G” quartzite unit that replicate the assays of channels located 1.4 km to the west. Equally gratifying is the silica purity reported in assays from Channel R13 located in the newly discovered zone “H” where 75% of the 12 samples submitted recorded silica purity of 99.0 to 99.9% SiO2,” commented Company President and CEO John de Jong. “Drilling, which is progressing on time and on budget, will help define the quartzite units’ length, width and depth, and also the consistency of high purity silica throughout the units. All of this information will be utilized as we prepare for a resource calculation early in 2016.”
Channel Sample Results
Channel samples, R1 — R14, consisting of 256 samples totaling 446.7 m of channelling were delivered to SGS Laboratories in Québec City, Québec. Assay results for 85 samples over 156.3 m from channels R8, R9, R10, on the “G” quartzite unit and R12 and R13 on the newly discovered quartzite unit “H” have been received.
The results of the other 7 channel sample results are still pending.
Channel R8A Details:
- Located on west side of “G” quartzite unit, 50 m east-northeast of R7
- 47 samples submitted
- Total channel sampling length 86.3 m
- 28.3 m comprising 15 of 47 samples in 3 sequences returned assays of SiO2 (99.0% to 99.8% SiO2)
Sequences of Assayed Silica Oxide Contents (Over 99.0% SiO2)
- Sequence 1: 16 m
- 4 m interval assayed between 99.1% to 99.5% SiO2
- 2 m interval assayed 99.0% SiO2
- 4 m interval assayed between 99.0% to 99.6% SiO2
- Sequence 2: 16 m
- 12.0 m (six samples assayed between 99.1% to 99.8% SiO2)
- 2.0 m interval assayed 99.7% SiO2
- Sequence 3: 4.3 m
- 3 intervals of 1m to 2m wide assayed between 99.1% to 99.5% SiO2
The higher silica content and purity is contained in quartzites that are white, coarse grain, crystalline, and massive with occasional minor pink staining (oxidation) in some areas.
