Montréal, April 18, 2019 – Sphinx Resources Ltd. (“Sphinx” or the “Corporation”) (TSX-V: SFX) and SOQUEM Inc., a subsidiary of Ressources Québec, are pleased to announce the analytical results of 14 additional holes drill holes, out of a total of 29 holes drilled in January along the 1,500 m- long zinciferous zone (see press releases of 15 November 2018, 27 February 2019 and 14 March 2019).


  • Hole CS-19-10 intersected 4.6% zinc over 1.0 metre; and
  • Hole CS-19-07 intersected 3.7% zinc over 2.0 metres including an interval at
    5% zinc over 1.0 metre.

The significant drill results for these 14 holes disclosed in this release are presented in Table 1 and Figure 1. They indicate the presence of the mineralization in all drill holes. The true thickness is estimated at 100% of the mineralized intersection length in all drill holes.

The analytical results of the nine (9) other drill holes performed in January 2019 are expected in the coming weeks.

Analytical protocol

Samples were analyzed by ALS in Val-d’Or, Quebec. The analytical process consisted of crushing, splitting and assaying using sodium peroxide fusion with an Inductively Coupled Plasma Atomic Emission Spectrometry (ICP-AES) finish. Sphinx applies industry-standard QA/QC procedures to the program.

Supervision and Qualified Persons

The January 2019 drilling campaign was carried out under the supervision of Mr. Jeremie Ryan and under the direction of Mr. Michel Gauthier, Ph.D. (géo, and Board member of the Corporation) and Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101. This press release was prepared by Normand Champigny, (Eng., director and Qualified Person of the Corporation).
