(Kitco News) – O3 Mining (TSX.V: OIII) announced on Wednesday that it is resuming drilling with 12 drill rigs to continue executing the well-funded 150,000 metre drilling program on its properties in Val-d’Or Québec, Canada.

O3 said that the increase to 12 rigs will allow the company to “take advantage of the freezing winter conditions to test targets located in humid areas”. Four rigs are operating on the Malartic property where a total of 45,000 metres of drilling is planned, and eight will focus on the Alpha property for a total of 100,000 metres of planned drilling.

“2020 was an incredibly busy and successful year for O3 Mining and 2021 promises to be even more so with extensive drilling programs at both Malartic and Alpha properties,” said President and CEO Jose Vizquerra. “We are aiming to rapidly add to our resource base and extend the mineralized footprint of both properties into new areas to make these projects some of the most attractive, and likely to be developed and exploited in the province,” continued Vizquerra.

O3 Mining, which forms part of the Osisko Group of companies, is a mine development and emerging consolidator of exploration properties in prospective gold camps in Canada – focused on projects in Québec and Ontario – with a goal of becoming a multi-million ounce, high-growth company.
