The first 3 drill holes on the Senneville South Property are part of a 9-hole drilling program totalling over 3,000 meters on the Senneville Claim Group. The program has been designed to confirm the successful drilling conducted on the Senneville Claim Group in 2012 (reported in the Xander’s press release dated November 19, 2020). The sites are easily accessible as they are just off Route 397 Nord and 22 km North of Val-d’Or. Gold-bearing zones in this area are associated with shear zones, faults, tension fractures and tectonic breccias and generally associated with syn-volcanic intrusions (ref: GM68366 garden island report page 24 (section deposit type)).

Previous drilling on the Senneville Claim Group includes SV-12-01 with 9.79gpt. /1.0m Au (ref: GM68366) and SV-12-03 which targeted the ESE extension of the showing intersected 11.03gpt /1m Au (ref: GM68366) occurring approximately 354 metres to the east along strike. Other areas of the Senneville Claim Group have not been systematically explored for gold as the focus of historical work was largely on their VMS potential.
