Tres-Or plans to conduct drill program at Fontana Gold Project in Quebec, Canada

Published 01 March 2018

Tres-Or Resources has announced 2018 exploration plans for a new 5,500m drill program on its wholly owned Fontana Gold Project located in Quebec, Canada.

 Fontana is the Company's flagship project located 10 km northeast of Amos, and 65 km north of Val-d'Or, Quebec.

The Company commenced this program with 4 drill holes into the intersection of the Hooper and Bunkhouse zones which confirmed high-grade gold mineralization (e.g. 46.1 g/t Au over 0.5 m; 15.9 g/t Au over 1.0 m; and 10.1 g/t Au over 1.0 m;.Currently, the Company is integrating the vast amounts of historical data into 3D models to identify the highest priority zones to focus the planned 2018 drill program.

"Tres-Or plans to resume drilling the Fontana Gold Project with a substantial drill program in 2018.Fontana is the heart of the Amos gold district and recent geologic compilation studies appear to point toward a promising gold opportunity."said Laura Lee Duffett, Tres-Or's President.

Based on the ongoing 3D modelling, Tres-Or plans a 5,500 m drill program focused on: 1) Zone 27; 2) Bunkhouse and Hooper Zones; 3) Fontana shaft zone and 4) the "Toughie" Zone.Drilling will start at Zone 27, where historical intersections include: 6.53 g/t Au over 8.3 m; 58.40 g/t Au over 1.8 m; 114.0 g/t Au over 0.9 m and 0.43 g/t Au over 31.5m.

Fontana was originally discovered in the 1930s, and has been the subject of considerable historical work including drilling, bulk samples and underground workings, which have led to identification of multiple priority gold zones.Tres-Or is engaged in a program of confirming and extending the historical mineralization.Drill holes are being designed in relation to the ongoing 3D modelling, as illustrated on the cross sections.

Laura Lee Duffett, P.Geo. and Harrison Cookenboo, Ph.D., P.Geo., OGQ are the qualified persons as defined in National Instrument- 43-101, who have reviewed and are responsible for the technical information presented in this news release.

PDAC Conference in Toronto:

Tres-Or will be attending the Prospectors and Developers Conference (PDAC) in Toronto which starts on March 4 and ends March 7.The Company welcomes you to stop by booth No. 2233 to meet our team and review our Fontana 3D modelling efforts if you plan on attending.
