News Releases


January 11, 2012


Cogitore Resources Inc. ("Cogitore") (TSX VENTURE:WOO) COGITORE Resources Inc. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:WOO) is pleased to report that diamond drilling programs are currently underway at two of its base metal projects.

One drill rig is in operation at the Caribou Project located in the Casa-Berardi area, where a 1,200 metre drill program is underway. Drilling in 2009 led to the discovery of high grade new massive sulphides located 3.4 kilometres to the west of the Estrades mine. The deposit forms a thin vertical sheet of approximately 300 metres by 400 metres. The weighted average of the six holes drilled to date is 3.3% copper, 6.5% zinc, 1.7 g/t gold and 66.1 g/t silver over a core length of 1.5 metres. The grades encountered makes the deposit amongst the top 10% of all VMS deposits worldwide (in terms of grade) and the deposit remains open below 600 metres vertical.

The targets for the on-going program include the extension at depth of the Caribou copper-zinc- gold-silver deposit, and an isolated conductor (InfiniTEM anomaly) identified in 2010 on strike and to the east of the deposit.

One rig has also moved to the Scott Lake Project where a 7,600 metre program has started. One of the objectives of the program is to test the structural interpretation suggested by Roscoe Postle Associates in the Central Lens area in the course of the recent resource evaluation. This will provide useful information in preparation for a preliminary economic evaluation. In addition, specific areas will be tested for additional resources, including:

  • extension of the Central Lens sector over a 300 metre gap towards "34 Zinc Zone";
  • SC-61 area along Tony Rhyolite (0.9% Cu over 21 m, including 2.8% Cu over 3.1m - south contact; 6.8% Cu, 0.5g/t Au and 140 g/t Ag over 20cm - north contact);
  • CFO Lens west extension; and
  • mineralized volcanics in proximity to the regional Gwillim Lake fault.

The Company has developed a strategic focus on base metal exploration in prospective areas that also feature infrastructure favourable for mining development. Accordingly, it will focus its work in the Abitibi Belt of Quebec and Ontario.
